Police identify this year’s first murder victim as Kyari Flood, who’s body was discovered in a secluded, grassy area, just off Border Lane South, in the Friswells Hill area of Pembroke.
Along with releasing the name of the 23-year-old deceased man, police also confirmed to the public that they have a man in custody assisting with the investigation.
Around 1:00 p.m. on Monday, February 13th, 2023, a member of the public contacted police to report an unresponsive male lying on the ground in a secluded overgrown area off Border Lane South and Friswells Road, Pembroke.
Police and other emergency personnel responded and were taken to the area where upon arrival, they observed the male appeared to have sustained a gunshot wound.
An on call physician attended the scene and confirmed the male was deceased a short time later.
This matter is now being investigated as a murder.
There are reports circulating that police received several calls about gunshots heard shortly after 10:15 p.m. on Sunday, February 12th, 2023, in a number of unspecified locations in Pembroke Parish.
Contrary to these reports, several units responded to the information received, vague though it may have been, and conducted extensive searches of the Happy Valley, Parsons Road and Fentons Drive areas, as well as Friswell’s Hill and other locations in North Hamilton. However, there was no evidence found to substantiate these reports.
Both matters are now under investigation and anyone with information, no matter how insignificant you think it may be, is asked to contact Detective Inspector, Jason Smith, of the Serious Crime Unit, on 717-0864, 247-1218 or via email, email@example.com.
You may also call the main police number, 295-0011, or the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers number, 800-8477.
If you are more comfortable doing so, we urge you to please provide the information to a police officer you know.
