Twenty-nine year old Marlon Jacob died after his motorcycle collided with a motor car.

Law enforcement officials explained that Jacobs was travelling to Dennery while the other vehicle was south bound.

It is reported that the incident occurred after midnight near the Frigate Islands Area. Meanwhile, police are investigating the sudden death of an elderly man from Choiseul.

Later that day his lifeless body was discovered by his brother. The deceased had blunt force trauma at the back of his head and his right eye was swollen.

Suspicions are that Jonny might have missed his step and slipped off a steep slope and hit his head on boulders below the slope.
