Murder witness appeal renewed on anniversary
Police called on residents yesterday to come forward with information related to a murder three years ago.
Jahcari Francis, 20, was shot dead in a home on Upland Street in Devonshire at about 11pm on July 19, 2017.
Detective Sergeant Jason Smith, the officer in charge of the investigation said: “On this, the anniversary of death of Jahcari Francis, the Bermuda Police Service is once again appealing for witnesses to come forward.
“In particular, residents of Upland Street who were at home at the time of this shooting.
“The investigative team is aware, that there are residents, who were outside of their homes at the time of this shooting and some were driving past the scene, just before and after the shooting.
“This appeal is to your good conscience, come forward and talk to us.”
Mr Smith added: “The BPS recently put a man before the courts charged with a 2018 murder and this was largely due to witnesses coming forward.
“This example is one of many, that murders can be solved when you support your police service.
“Today, the family of Jahcari are still grieving and looking for closure. Today, you the public can make a difference. We want to hear from you.”
