Police still hunting clues in 2012 ‘murder’

Nearly five years after a Pembroke man went missing, police have issued an updated plea for information pertaining to the case.

Rudy Lamar Smith, 41, was last seen in the Deepdale Road area on July 9, 2012.

The motorcycle he was last seen riding was found in the waters off North Shore Road near Grace Methodist Church, Pembroke.

A month later, police announced that his disappearance was being treated as a murder investigation.

Na'imah Astwood, Detective Chief Inspector with Bermuda Police Service, said that the Serious Crime Unit is committed to solving the crime.

“However, we need your help in putting all of the relevant pieces together,” Ms Astwood said.

In a media release, police also said that particulars could be provided directly to the victim's mother.

“Madeline Rampersad can also be approached and furnished with any pertinent information,” police said.

“This information is important in the administration of justice for those person(s) responsible for this senseless crime.”

A Crime Stoppers reward for information in connection with the case continues to be offered.

Anyone with information is asked to contact investigators on 295-0011 or 247-1739, or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477.
