The residential area where an American university rugby player was last captured on CCTV is more than a mile from the bar where he had enjoyed a night out with friends.

Mark Dombroski was filmed by a CCTV camera on Alexandra Road, Devonshire, at 1.30am on Sunday.

It is the last known image of the 19-year-old Pennsylvania student, who was in Bermuda for a rugby tournament as part of his university team.

Alexandra Road lies past the eastern boundary of the Arboretum and is accessible to vehicles only from Fort Hill Road, off Middle Road.

A handful of buildings on the west side of the road back on to the dry moat where Mr Dombroski’s body was found on Monday afternoon.

Chain-link fencing could be seen yesterday along the rear of some buildings that back on to the moat.

Viewed from Fort Prospect on the opposite side of the moat, police tape was visible across a stretch where the fencing appeared to end.

Superintendent Sean Field-Lament would not comment yesterday on where Mr Dombroski’s body had been discovered in relation to the fencing.

Mr Field-Lament said: “Obviously that forms part of the investigation.

“The facts will come out in the wash.”
