The Bermuda Police Service has renewed its appeal for information pertaining to the murder of 35-year-old Jevon Reid Daniels whose body was found in Dockyard last June.
During a press conference yesterday, Det. Sgt Jason Smith of the Serious Crime Unit said the father disappeared on May 16, 2016 and was brought to the Police’s attention five days later. His disappearance was, and is still considered suspicious.
“On Friday, June 17, 2016, Jevon Daniels' body was found in bushes off of Ireland Island sports field commonly known as Moresby Plain,” said Mr. 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.”
Mr. Smith continued: “The person(s) 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.
“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.”
Mr. Smith added that any information one may have on Jevon Daniels' disappearance will be treated with the strictest of confidence and all investigative lines of enquiry followed.
