Galley Worker Found Dead by Kitchen Knives
A Filipino sailor was found dead Sunday evening on the containership MV Emvella when it reached dock at Malta Freeport.
According to local news reports, the man was found in a pool of blood with multiple stab wounds on his body. Two kitchen knives were found next to the man’s corpse. The man was a Philippines citizen and worked in the ship’s galley.
The MV Emvella is registered in Malta and had departed from Turkey before the incident took place. Police are currently investigating the crime and coroners are conducting an autopsy this week to further determine the circumstances of the man’s death.
