The Serious Crime Unit’s investigative team today renewed their appeal for public assistance into the suspicious death of 35-year-old Jevon Daniels, whose decomposed body was found wrapped in cloth with his hands and feet bound in bushes off of Ireland Island sports field commonly known as ‘Moresby Plain’ on June 17th last year.
To date, three men have been arrested, questioned and subsequently released in connection with this investigation. No formal charges have been laid since Mr Daniels was reported missing last May.
According to Detective Sergeant Jason Smith, the cause of Mr Daniels death has not been determined. But he denied that his body was dismembered and found in plastic bags when discovered on Ireland Island.
“Jevon’s disappearance was brought to the attention of the police on the 21st of May 2016, and a police investigation commenced into his disappearance which was and still is suspicious.
“On Friday, June 17th, 2016, Jevon Daniels’ body was found in bushes off of Ireland Island sports field commonly known as ‘Moresby Plain’,” said Sgt Smith.
“Jevon’s body was wrapped in cloth and his hands and feet bound. The persons responsible for Jevon Daniels’ disappearance went through great lengths to conceal and dispose of his body.
“The person(s) for his disappearance would have to drive his body to this area and it is the belief of the investigating team that more than one person was involved in his death and the disposal of his body.
“The circumstances surrounding his death are suspicious and there is an active suspicious death investigation underway. To date three males have been arrested in connection with Jevon’s death; interviewed and released from police custody pending further enquiries.
“We are renewing our appeal to members of the public to help bridge the gap in this investigation and bring to justice those responsible for causing the death of Jevon Daniels; his concealment and disposal of his body,” he added.
Sgt Smith also said: “Those persons who are responsible for his disappearance would have had to drive his body to this area, and it is the beliefs of the investigating team that more than one person was involved in his death and the disposal of his body.”
In his renewed appeal for public assistance Sgt Smith said all leads will be treated with the strictest confidence and all investigative lines of enquiry followed.
