Shadow Minister of National Security was quick to react to tragic news of yet another murder committed in Bermuda, on Remembrance Day, claiming the life of a young woman who was stabbed to death.
Police have launched a fullscale investigation what could be a murder-suicide attempt, after the 28-year-old woman was found dead at a Smith’s Parish home, with a 37-year-old unresponsive man lying next to her.
That man is now in custody “assisting police with their investigation into this incident”, which was reported as a domestic dispute just before 3am this morning.
Mr Dunkley, the One Bermuda Alliance MP for Smith’s North, said today: “I was shocked and saddened this morning to learn of the tragic domestic dispute in Smith’s last night which resulted in a young woman losing her life and a man in the hospital.
“I have been in contact with the police and I am assured that they are on top of this matter. I have also reached out to residents in the area.
“Any type of violence is very disturbing and our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of those affected by this horrible incident.”
As first reported by TNNs Trevor Lindsay, officers arrived at the scene to find the young woman’s lifeless body with multiple stab wounds.
“A 37-year-old unresponsive male found at the scene, was transported via ambulance to the King Edward VII memorial Hospital, where he was attended to for injuries to his hands,” a spokesman said.
“He is now assisting police with their investigation into this incident.
“The scene has been forensically processed and death was certified by an on-call physician.”
Meanwhile, police are appealing for anyone with information to call 211 or the main police number, 295-0011
