POLICE ISSUE WITNESS APPEAL IN FATAL STABBING INVESTIGATION
At around 7:15pm on Saturday 29th July, 2017, Jahkobi Smith was fatally stabbed after he was involved in an altercation that took place at the West End Sailboat Club, Sandy’s. At that time, there was a wake being held for the late Jahcari Francis.
Police and EMT’s rendered assistance to Mr. Smith at the scene; however, he was pronounced dead shortly after his arrival at King Edward Memorial Hospital.
On this the third anniversary of his death, the Bermuda Police Service is once again appealing for any witnesses to please come forward to help us solve this crime and bring closure to the family of Mr. Smith.
We would like to speak with anyone who may have seen something or heard something, particularly, if you were at the West End Sailboat Club or in the general vicinity, around the time of the incident.
Also, anyone knowing the movements of Jahkoby Smith prior to this incident, is urged to contact Detective Sergeant Dean Martin of the Serious Crime Unit on 717-2074 / 247-1739 or the confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477.
Mr. Martin said: There is someone out there who knows the person responsible for Mr. Smith’s death, we urge you to come forward and speak with us. You have the option of remaining anonymous by using the Crime Stoppers number.
Remember, that with the assistance of the public we have been able to solve a number of recent serious crimes or have been provided information which has allowed us to make significant progress with investigations into historical crimes. Most recently, the arrest of an accused sex offender.
If you have any information on the murder of Jahkobi Smith, please, reach out to us.”
