Cayman Islands cops probe death of Washington native

The Associated Press

GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands — Cayman Islands police said Wednesday they are investigating the death of a U.S. man who worked in the British territory’s offshore financial sector.

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service identified the man as 38-year-old James Dean McLaughlin. He was originally from  Washington state, but police did not provide a hometown.

McLaughlin’s body was found at a resort complex on the main island of Grand Cayman, where he worked as an investment analyst.

Detectives are investigating the death and an autopsy is scheduled. They did not release more specifics, saying in a statement  it was “premature at this time to speculate on the cause of death.”

They appealed to anyone who may have seen or spoken to McLaughlin since May 19 to contact them.

Thousands of lawyers, accountants and other workers from around the globe work in the tiny Caribbean territory,  home to one of the world’s biggest international finance centers.
