"On Monday (Oct. 31), authorities in the southern Haitian city of Les Cayes found the body of radio commentator Garry Tess, who had been missing since Oct. 18, according to news reports. Tess was a lawyer who also worked as a political analyst and host of the popular radio program “Gran Lakou” on private broadcaster Radio Lébon FM in Les Cayes, according to reports. CPJ is continuing to investigate his death, including whether it was related to his work as a journalist.

Les Cayes Government Commissioner Ronald Richemond announced on Tuesday (Nov. 1) that the public prosecutor’s office and local police had opened an investigation into Tess’s death and had already questioned several people in connection to the case, according to reports.
