The Clarendon police have launched an investigation after a 76-year-old farmer was reportedly killed by praedial thieves.

The body of Lloyd Riley was found in bushes near his home in Frankfield in the parish sometime after 7 o’clock last evening.

It appeared to have several chop sounds.

The police say preliminary investigations reveal that he was killed by praedial larcenists attempting to steal his cattle.

It’s unclear if the thieves took any of the animals.
