Police are on the scene of a homicide in Laventille.

The deceased has been identified as Anthony Blackman, 44.

At about 6 a.m. today residents of St Barb's community went to check on Blackman.

They found his body lying on the ground bleeding from multiple stab wounds.

His body was nude.

The killing is suspected to have a 'domestic' motive.

A team of officers from the Homicide Bureau, the Inter Agency Task Force, and the Besson Street police station are currently on location.
