KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — Authorities say a popular entertainment coordinator in Jamaica's north coast tourism industry has been fatally stabbed and his house set ablaze.

Police say the nude body of Dean Moriah was found early Tuesday wrapped in a towel a short distance from his burned house in the tourist city of Montego Bay.

Neighbors in the neighborhood of Bogue Village reported flames coming from the home at about 3:20 a.m. and rushed to help put out the fire. They found Moriah's body in the yard with multiple stab wounds.

There have been no arrests.

The 41-year-old Jamaican had worked as an entertainment coordinator at a number of tourist hotels in Montego Bay and Negril.
