Renewed Danshun Swann & Jason Mello Murder Appeals

Tuesday, August 27th - The 27th of August is the one year anniversary of the murder of Mr. Danshun Swann.

 

Danshun was stabbed to death on South Road Southampton, just outside of the entrance to the Southampton Rangers Sports Club shortly after midnight Monday 27th August 2018.

 

This investigation is an active investigation and detectives are renewing their appeal for witnesses to come forward.

 

Investigators are aware that there was a large crowd present at the time that Danshun was stabbed and many people witnessed this stabbing.

 

The investigators are also aware that many of those witnesses were recording a fight that was taking place and investigators are interested in speaking with those witnesses that have footage.

 

Investigators would like to publicly thank those witnesses that have come forward to date and provided information. However, this appeal is for more to do the same.

 

Investigators are aware that some witnesses are reluctant to come forward and would like to remind the public that the information that you share will be treated in the strictest of confidence. All information is important and has the potential to solve Danshun’s murder.

 

To date two men have been arrested in connection with Danshun’s murder and both have been released from police bail pending further investigations.

 

The murder of Danshun Swann was senseless and a cowardly attack by unscrupulous individuals. Justice demands that those responsible are prosecuted.

 

Any information that you have, you are asked to make contact with the senior investigating officers Detective Chief Inspector Arthur Glasford on 247-1739 or Acting Detective Inspector Jason Smith on 717-0864 or e-mail jsmith2@bps.bm.

 

Alternatively, anonymous tips can be given by calling the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477, or by visiting their website www.crimestoppers.bm.

 

Monday, August 19th - Detectives are renewing their appeal for information in connection with the murder of Jason Mello.

 

Jason Mello was fatally shot around 7:35pm Friday 19th August 2016, three years ago, whilst on Band Room Lane, Pembroke.

 

The gunman is believed to have entered Band Room Lane wearing a full face visor helmet and heavy dark coloured winter clothing that would have been unusual on a hot August evening.

 

The gunman is also believed to have parked the motorcycle higher up on Band Room Lane and walked down to where he shot Mr. Mello several times.

 

The gunman then returned to his parked motorcycle and rode back out through the St. Monica’s Road area.

 

Police continue to appeal for witnesses or anyone who may have any information – no matter how insignificant it may seem – to contact Detective Sergeant Dean Martin at the Serious Crime Unit on 247-1739.

 

Alternatively, anonymous tips can be given by calling the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477, or by visiting their website www.crimestoppers.bm.
