A consultant at the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB), Horace Phillips, had been found dead near his home in Old Harbour, St. Catherine.
Phillips went missing on Sunday night.
His body was found earlier this morning in a house in Marley Mount.
His car was found nearby.
Phillips has been working out of the JTB offices in Montego Bay as a marketing officer.
“I have been calling him since Sunday night and to no avail, but I knew something was wrong after 15 calls to his phone,” said a colleague of his.
