Missing teen’s remains found buried in shallow grave

Six months after he was reported missing by the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS), missing teenager Christon N. Marshall was found dead, after his remains were found buried in a shallow grave.

According to police, Marshall was last seen at his Buen Intento Road, Princes Town home, around 6:30pm, on Thursday 2nd January 2020.

He was reported missing to the Princes Town Police Station, around 10:20am, on Wednesday 8th January 2020 by his mother.

Around 4:00pm last Friday, an informant took investigators to a hill along the La Lune shoreline in Moruga.

There, they dug up a shallow grave and found a skull, bones, a red bandanna, a white T-short and a pair of blue 3/4 pants believed to be that of Marshall.

Marshall was last seen wearing a white vest, a pair of blue 3⁄4 pants and a blue slipper.

Investigators believed Marshall was shot and chopped before he was buried.

The remains were removed from the site and taken to the forensic sciences center where an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.

Before his remains were found, many speculated about Marshall’s disappearance.

Some said he was kidnapped and taken to Venezuela, while others said he was involved in a drug run as he went with a friend to purchase marijuana.

The latter proved true as a man admitted that Marshall had accompanied him to purchase marijuana.

Marshall was a student of Barrackpore West Secondary School.
