At around 2:20 this morning, 57-year-old Duane Gibbons was found in an unresponsive state in between the Swizzle Inn restaurant and Grotto Bay Resort in Hamilton parish, Bermuda Police Service (BPS) Acting Detective-Inspector Jason Smith revealed in a press conference this afternoon.
Shortly after police and other emergency responders arrived on the scene, Mr. Gibbons was taken to King Edward Memorial Hospital, where he later succumbed to his injury.
According to reports, the cause of Mr. Gibbons’ death was a single stab wound making his death the third murder of the year in Bermuda.
“ The BPS is aware that, prior to the 911 call being received, there were several members of our community who were travelling along North Shore Road, heading in both easterly and westerly directions who might have seen Mr. Gibbons,” Detective-Inspector Smith said. “ The BPS believes that there were several minutes in between when Mr. Gibbons was stabbed and when he collapsed.”
Anyone who was travelling along the North Shore Road strip between Swizzle Inn and Grotto Bay around the time of the incident is strongly encouraged to contact the BPS about what they may have observed.
“ How Mr. Gibbons, a Warwick resident , came to be in this specific location at that hour of the morning is vital to our investigation and to helping us piece together the pieces of the puzzle that we can fit,” Detective-Inspector Smith said.
Again, anyone with any information on the incident is urged to call the confidential CrimeStoppers hotline at 800-8477, the BPS’ reporting number at 211, Detective-Sergeant Windol Thorpe at 717-0752 or Mr. Smith himself at 717-0864.
