Police have discovered a headless body in a car on Duncan Street, which they believe matches a head discovered in a garbage pile earlier today.

Police say the body was discovered near Super Hardware on Duncan Street in East Port-of-Spain.

At the time of this report (12.30 pm) investigators were on the scene probing the discovery.

The gruesome discovery of the head was made around five o'clock this morning by sanitation workers attached to the Port-of-Spain City Corporation.

Prior to the discovery of the body, police officers had gone to the Beetham landfill in search of finding the rest of the body.

The head has been taken to the Forensic Sciences Centre for examination.

Pall Mall Street is located off Quarry Street in Port-of-Spain.
