Wed, 2023-02-15

As the investigation into the murder of 23-year-old Kyari Flood continues, officers from the Community Policing Division have been traversing the Friswells Road community providing reassurance to residents.

Detectives remain keen on hearing from members of the public who may have any information on the circumstances which may have led to Mr. Flood’s lifeless body being found in a secluded area off Border Lane South and Friswell’s Hill around 1:00 p.m. on Monday, February 13th, 2023.

A 20-year-old male from Devonshire arrested during a police operation launched following the discovery of Mr. Flood’s body, is assisting police with their enquiries into the murder of Mr. Flood.

Detective Inspector Jason Smith of the Serious Crimes Unit stated: “I wish to thank those members of the public who have so far come forward and provided us with information on this matter. Let me remind you that any information, as insignificant as you may think it to be, could prove valuable to our ongoing investigation. Officers from our Community Policing Division have been out providing reassurance to residents of Friswells Hill and environs. We urge residents to take the opportunity to share with these officers any information or concerns you might have regarding this matter.

Acting Detective Chief Inspector Derricka Burns explained there was no delay in police responding to reports of gunshots heard in the Pembroke area shortly after 10:00 p.m. on Sunday 12th February 2023. “Residents reported hearing shots in the areas of Happy Valley Road, Fentons Drive, Parsons Road and Friswells Hill.

I can confirm that officers attended these areas and spoke to residents who were unable to pinpoint the exact location of the shots. An extensive search was conducted of these areas by police, however, nothing untoward was discovered at that time.

We do believe that Sunday’s gunshot reports and the discovery of the body yesterday are connected.”

Both matters remain under investigation and we once again urge anyone with any information to get in contact with Detective Inspector, Jason Smith, of the Serious Crime Unit, by calling 717-0864, 247-1218 or via email,
