LADYVILLE–Six days before Christmas, a mother’s worst nightmare was confirmed — the skeletal remains of her son were found in the Mile 12 area of Ladyville and she was taken there to officially identify him. A Social Security card found in the pocket of the clothes the man was wearing identified him as Marvin Rafael Bol, 23, of Aracari Street, Ladyville.
Police went to pick up Bol’s mother at her workplace at the Philip Goldson International Airport and took her to the area in Ladyville, where she identified the clothes her son was wearing and positively identified the deceased person as her son, Marvin Rafael Bol.
The bones were then placed in a bag and take to the National Forensic Unit for an autopsy to be performed on the remains to possibly certify the cause of Bol’s death.
Marvin Bol’s bones were found this morning at about 9:30 in an open area about 100 yards off the Northern Highway near Mile 12.
In a press brief this morning at the Ladyville Police Station, Inspector Fredrick Gordon, Commander of Ladyville police, said that all they found was the skeleton of a person, later identified as Marvin Rafael Bol, who was known to them, and who was wanted in connection with the investigation of a robbery that occurred about six weeks ago.
Gordon said that no missing person report was made for Marvin Bol. Police said that there seemed to be blood on the shirt that Bol was wearing, and they are convinced Bol had been killed, so they are treating his death as a murder.
Apparently, Bol’s remains had been disturbed by animals, or vultures. There was no flesh or tissue found, only bones.
In December 2012, Bol reported that he was in a yard on Dove Street in Ladyville, speaking to a friend when a black car and a man on a bicycle approached the yard. The car then stopped, and the driver got out and gave a firearm to the man on the bicycle, who then immediately fired several shots at Bol, hitting him in the right shoulder.
The car drove away and the cyclist escaped.
Two men were arrested and charged with attempted murder, use of deadly means of harm, and wounding.
