Murder witnesses urged to come forward

Police have issued a fresh appeal for witnesses to this week's murder of Jonathan Dill to come forward.

Mr Dill was shot dead execution-style outside a home on The Glebe Road, Pembroke, on Monday night. The 30-year-old had links to the 42 gang and had previously served jail time for his involvement in a shooting.

Last night a police spokesman said that investigators were working with witnesses and area residents in the hope they may provide vital information relating to the murder.

“We are thankful for those that have already come forward, but it is essential that those who know something, say something,” the spokesman said.

“Detectives are pursuing all available lines of enquiry. We know that persons with information may be reluctant to come forward. However, the community holds the key to solving this crime and the Bermuda Police Service will require the assistance of our fellow community members to bring the killer or killers to justice.

“It is also important for all members of the public to remember that there are means to protect and reward persons that provide information leading to an arrest or a conviction in this and other similar cases.”

Anyone with pertinent information can contact the Serious Crime Unit in confidence at 247-1739 or on the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
