Police identify female murder victim as Diante Trimm

Assistant Commissioner of Police, Antoine Daniels by way of a press conference today, expressing sincere condolences to the family of 37-year-old Diante Trimm, who was shot and killed at approximately 12.35am on the morning of Friday, June 7, 2024, while inside her South Terrace, Pembroke Parish residence.

Although some in our community may surmise that this was the first firearms murder of 2024, 1 firearm incident, is too many!

Particularly, when we consider that Ms. Trimm was a young woman, killed in the prime of her life. She was a mother who leaves to mourn 5 children and was callously shot and killed inside of her private residence

A place where all of us should feel safe and secure.

Tragically, Ms. Trimm is the 9th female to be murdered in Bermuda since 2008, and the second killed with the use of a firearm since 2020

I take this opportunity to thank all of those witnesses who have come forward thus far. However, I cannot stress enough, the importance of those who know something to please speak with police, regardless of how unimportant you believe the information you have, to be.

Also, TNN News understands around 6:00 pm last Wednesday, police recovered what is believed to be a live firearm.

That weapon is currently being forensically examined and tested for its operational capability. Stay tuned for further updates on this latest weapon seizure.

TNN News wishes to offer sincere condolences to the families and friends of Diante Trimm.
