Erin Richardson Murder Investigation Remains Active 10 Years Later

Ten years have passed since the murder of Erin Lee Richardson.

Mr. Richardson, 28, was shot multiple times outside his residence at 16 Riviera Crescent, Southampton, around 10:45pm on Wednesday 23rd April 2014. He attempted to escape his attackers by running inside his residence, but was unable to do so.

Police officers and EMTs attended the scene and administered first-aid to Mr. Richardson who was transported by ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital where tragically, he succumbed to his injuries.

The Bermuda Police Service is once again appealing to members of the public who may have any information on this matter to please come forward and provide that information to us. Please help us provide closure to Mr. Richardson’s family and bring those responsible for his death to justice.

We remain extremely keen to speak with anyone who may have seen two males on a motorcycle leave Riviera Road in Southampton around the time of the shooting. The persons on the bike wore dark clothing, and the motorcycle had a quiet running engine.

Mr. Richardson’s life was cut short and he has left behind many family members to grieve his loss.

Were it your loved one so senselessly killed, you would want those with information to come forward and assist the police with their investigation. We are asking the same for Mr. Richardson’s loved ones.

Anyone with knowledge of this incident or who has information that can assist in identifying and bringing the offender(s) to justice is asked to contact Detective Chief Inspector Derricka Burns of the Serious Crime Unit on phone number, 247-1062 or via e-mail
