A Canadian has been killed in Trinidad in what police are reportedly calling a homicide.

The Canadian government has confirmed the death, but officials say due to privacy laws they can provide few other details.

Two Trinidad and Tobago news stations identified the victim as 56-year-old Vishnu Narine, an Ontario resident.

On its website, the Daily Express said Narine was visiting his homeland when he was found dead Friday morning in Sainte Madeleine.

According to reports, police said he was found with obvious signs of trauma.

The Trinidad Guardian reported the body was discovered on a gravel road at a site earmarked for construction.

Narine’s family told police he was last seen alive on Thursday night and was carrying $10,000 in cash when he ventured out to meet someone.

Canadian officials in Port of Spain are in touch with local authorities and consular services are being provided to the family of the person who was killed.
