In a heartfelt appeal, Krishunna Outerbridge, the wife of Jordan Outerbridge, who was murdered last week, pleaded for information that will lead to justice for her family.
Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday (April 14), she said: “I just want justice for my husband because he did not deserve this and I want answers.
“I want answers for our 18-month-old daughter for when she turns 18 and she wants to know what happened to her dad. I want to be able to tell her, as well as my ten-year-old daughter, who is his stepdaughter.
“We just need the closure, even if this is not a chapter in my life that I want to close.”
Mr Outerbridge, who was 33, was fatally shot at around 10.30pm on April 6 near the junction of Ord Road and Tribe Road No 2 as he walked home from a card game.
His murder is being treated as a case of mistaken identity.
Fighting back the tears, his wife said: “I can’t stop thinking about our 18-month-old daughter who cannot remember, see or understand how much her father loved her.
“This is just a nightmare and just replays in my mind all day, every day. I’m lost for words because my husband is such a great man.
“He is someone’s son, husband, brother, grandson, and I just feel like this isn’t fair to us and his family.
“I do believe there are people that know exactly what happened and I have found that here in Bermuda, especially our younger generation, they don’t like to come forward.
“They don’t like to talk about what they know of situations like that, but I urge and plead and beg if you know something, say something. Even if it’s not to police or the media directly.”
Acting Detective Inspector Jason Smith said officers were looking for anyone who may have seen two men on a motorcycle in the area around the time of the shooting.
“The rider was shorter in height than the passenger. What stands out about the passenger, who was the shooter in this incident, is he was wearing a royal blue fitted rain-type jacket,” he said.
“We are aware that the motorcycle in question, at approximately 10.09pm the night of the murder, travelled along the Railway Trail past the residence where is now the scene of the shooting.
“We know that the same bike came back at approximately 10.30pm at which time the passenger got off the bike and shot Mr Outerbridge.”
Anyone with any information is urged to call 295-0011 or 800-TIPS.
