Bermuda Police Service on Tragic Incident in Pembroke

The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) regrets to inform the public of a tragic incident that was reported earlier today, Sunday, July 7, 2024.

Police and other first responders were dispatched to an apartment on South Terrace, Pembroke, shortly after 12 p.m. Upon arrival, officers found four unresponsive persons inside the premises: two adults and two minors. An on-call doctor attended the scene and pronounced their deaths shortly thereafter.

While there has been widespread speculation, preliminary investigations indicate no direct connection between these four deaths and the recent murder of Ms. Diante Trimm, who was tragically shot in her apartment on the same compound. At this time, the BPS is treating the murder of Ms. Trimm as separate and distinct from today’s tragedy. A thorough investigation is underway to determine the circumstances surrounding these deaths.

Acting Police Commissioner, Na’imah Astwood, said We urge the public to remain calm and cooperative as we conduct our investigation. As a mother of two young daughters, my heart is absolutely shattered by this news. To the families of the deceased, our thoughts are with you during this very difficult time, and we stand ready to provide any assistance.

Further updates will be provided as more information becomes available. We ask for the public’s understanding and support as we work to uncover the truth behind this incident. Ensuring the safety and well-being of all residents remains a top priority for the Bermuda Police Service.

Anyone with information is encouraged to assist our investigation by contacting Detective Chief Inspector Dorica Burns of the Serious Crime Department at 717-0921 or via email at dburns@bps.vm. You may also call the main police number at 295-0011, the Independent and Confidential Crime Stoppers number at 800-8477, or use the BPS Community Portal at portal.police.vm.
