Update on Investigation Into Death of 19 Year Old Mark Dombroski

Tue, 2018-03-20

Superintendent Sean Field-Lament – Good Afternoon.

Firstly let me reiterate on behalf of the Bermuda Police Service our sincere condolences to the family & friends of Mark Dombroski.

The Bermuda Police Service is progressing the investigation into the death of Mark, a visiting 19 year old American college freshman.

A team of investigators is actively continuing their inquiries into the circumstances of Mark’s death.

An overseas forensic pathologist will be in Bermuda tomorrow (Wednesday, March 21st) to conduct the autopsy.

Here is what we can confirm:

At 1:30am on Sunday, March 18th 2018, CCTV images show Mark was walking alone along Alexandra Road in Devonshire, which is immediately to the south of where his body was found.

At this juncture, further review of CCTV shows no other activity in the neighbourhood at that time.

Mark’s body was found at the base of a significant drop at Fort Prospect.

His wallet and cell phone were found with him, intact.

Contrary to recent speculative social media posts, Mark’s body was not bound or tied up. We await the forensic pathologist’s independent official report.

The Bermuda Police Service is specifically asking for witnesses in the Alexandra Road, Devonshire area that may have heard or seen anything between 1am Sunday, March 18th and 4pm Monday, March 19th 2018.

A further update will be provided following the examination by a forensic pathologist.

In closing I would like to thank members of the public and retailers for their assistance, especially with obtaining CCTV footage.

Police continue to appeal for witnesses and anyone with any information about 19 year old Mark Dombroski – no matter how insignificant it may seem to you – is asked to contact the Senior Investigating Officer Acting Detective Inspector Karema Flood by phone on 717-2086 or by e-mail kflood@bps.bm.
