The body found off a precipice at the Heights of Guanapo in Arima last Wednesday has been identified as that of Zachary La Rose, of Harmony Drive, Maturita, Arima.

La Rose, 24, was a popular disc jockey known as DJ Selectah Energy.

According to a police report, La Rose was positively identified via DNA sample testing conducted at the Forensic Science Centre in St James yesterday.

The T&T Guardian understands that relatives also identified the body by the clothing that was still intact on the decomposing body.

Police said he was shot once in the head and his hands were tied behind his back.

According to a police report, people who were cleaning the side of the roadway at about 5 pm last Wednesday discovered the body.

La Rose was last seen driving his white Nissan Tiida, license number PDM 589, at about 4 pm on July 12 in the Arima area.

He was reported missing to the Arima Police Station that same day by his mother Nikki La Rose.

A team of officers from the Homicide Bureau and the Northern Division, supervised by Snr Sup Daniel, are continuing investigations.
