Fiqre Crockwell Murder Investigation

Wed, 2016-06-22

Assistant Commissioner of Police Antoine Daniels - I wish to begin by extending sincere condolences on behalf of the Bermuda Police Service to the family, friends, close community and sporting colleagues of 30 year old St. George’s resident Fiqre Crockwell, who tragically lost his life on Monday morning.

This has been an extremely traumatic experience for everyone involved especially considering the number of people who were present in the Woodlands Road area at the time of the shooting.

The negative impact a single incident like this has on the community as a whole is profound, especially when we consider that Mr. Crockwell was a young man who was in the prime of his life, a father, brother, uncle, son and friend.
