Renewed Witness Appeal: Jahkoby Smith Murder Investigation

The Bermuda Police Service is still requesting the public’s assistance with information that can help us with solving the murder of Jahkoby Smith.

The circumstances are as follows:

About 7:15pm on Saturday 29th July 2017, police received several 911 calls from persons reporting a stabbing at West End Sailboat Club, Sandys, where the wake of murder victim Jahcari Francis was taking place.

Police and first responders were dispatched to the scene where the victim, Jahkoby Smith, was being tended to by persons in the area. Police officers rendered first aid until EMTs arrived who then conveyed Mr. Smith to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital. Unfortunately, he was subsequently pronounced dead as a result of his injuries.

Police are appealing to witnesses or anyone who may have any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem to you, to please contact Detective Sergeant Dean Martin at the Serious Crime Unit on 295-0011 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477.

All incidents are under investigation. Police are appealing to members of the public who have witnessed these incidents or may have information pertaining to them to contact their respective Police Station, Police Headquarters at 295-0011 or the confidential Crimestoppers Hotline on 1 (800) 623-8477.
