A body of a woman was today found floating off the beach at Paynes Bay, St. James.

Police say the body was discovered about 2pm floating in the water off the area where the Cubana monument is located.

Starcom understands the victim is a British woman in her late 70’s who spends several months a year in Barbados and when here, resides at Paynes Bay, near to the area where she died.

When Starcom Network News visited the area this afternoon, a friend and a neighbor said the victim was going through some troubling personal matters, and just hours before her body was found in the  sea, she had been drinking heavily.
