St. Maarten man found dead in R’dam harbor
The body of a man that was found floating in Schiehaven in Rotterdam has turned out to be that of 22-year-old St. Maarten native Jahbal Flanders. Flanders was reported missing since December 29th. His body was found floating near the replica of “De Delft”, the historic 17th century warship that is being built in the harbor. Police have not yet determined his cause of death. Sources on St. Maarten, a Dutch Caribbean island nation, have said Jahbal’s passing has left his family devastated. The young man had relocated to the Netherlands a few years ago, where he studied and dabbled in music.
