The police are theorising that he may have committed suicide by drinking a toxic substance.
It is not clear for how long the body was there.
Stephenson was being sought by the police ever since his car was found in Marshall's Pen with the body of 25-year-old Kyhymn Campbell.
The mutilated body with it's throat slashed was found wrapped in a sheet in an igloo.
