The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) today relaunched an appeal for witnesses to the murder of Kyari Flood, who was shot dead a year ago today.

The 23-year-old’s body was discovered by a member of the public in a secluded area covered by trees and shrubbery off of Border Lane South, on Friswells Road in Pembroke at about 1pm on February 13, 2023.

His death marked the first murder victim of last year.

Two men were arrested soon after the discovery, who were later released on police bail without charges.

Detective Inspector Jason Smith of the Bermuda Police Service’s Serious Crime Unit thanked members of the public who have come forward so far to provide information on this case.

“Please understand that any information, even if you think it to be insignificant, could prove valuable to our ongoing investigation,” he added.

“While we are deeply appreciative of the assistance we’ve received from the public so far, we know there are other members of the community who have information that could prove helpful in solving this crime, bringing those responsible for Mr Flood’s murder to justice.

“We urgently need to hear from you. Please, reach out to me by calling 717-0864, 247-1218 or via e-mail at jsmith2@bps.bm.”

Anyone with information may also call the main police number 295-0011, or visit the confidential and independent Crime Stoppers website crimestoppers.bm and provide details using the anonymous online reporting form.

Witnesses can also give information to any police officer they know or use the BPS community reporting portal at portal.police.bm.
