The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) confirmed today that they are aware of several videos being circulated on social media, in relation to a fatal stabbing incident, which took place at Horseshoe Bay Beach on Friday (May 24).

A spokeswoman said this evening: “The nature of these videos is extremely graphic, and the sharing of them on social media, will no doubt be upsetting to the loved ones of the victim.

“Videos and images recorded at crime scenes, are also considered crucial evidence in an investigation. The sharing of such evidence, could be detrimental to potential court cases.

“Rather than sharing these videos and images with friends or through social media, we want to encourage members of the community to send them to police instead and at the earliest opportunity.

“If you have received videos or images of this latest incident, we are urging you not to share them and to delete them from your devices,” she added.

“The Bermuda Police Service is very keen to speak to anyone who was at Horseshoe Bay Beach around 3:15pm on 24th of May, and recorded images or video of an altercation involving several males.

“Those witnesses are asked to contact Acting Detective Inspector Anneka Donawa on 717-2250 oradonawa@bps.bm<mailto:adonawa@bps.bm. You can also contact a police officer that you know.”
