Police Treating Somerset Assault As Murder As Police Identity The Victim

During a press conference this afternoon, Bermuda Police Service Detective-Sergeant Jason Smith informed members of the public that what began as an assault investigation on Monday June 21 has now turned into a murder investigation; as 33-year-old Quane Marley Lowe recently succumbed to his injuries after being assaulted by a group of men near the Somerset Cricket Club early Monday morning.

In fact, today (June 26) would have been Mr. Lowe’s 34th birthday.

“ Previously, the BPS stated that they wanted to speak to people within the Scott’s Hill Road/Cricket Lane area in between 1:30 and 2 a.m. on June 21,” Detective-Sergeant Smith said.

“ But, Investigations have pushed the time a bit further and now the BPS who may have been in the area in between 1:30 and 3 a.m.”
Mr. Lowe was transported to his Eastdale Lane residence following the assault, and the BPS is very interested to hear from anyone with any information on who transported him there.

At this point, the BPS can confirm that any injuries sustained to Mr. Lowe as a result of the Eastdale vehicular accident at Eastdale Lane played no real role in his eventual death, but that it was caused almost entirely by injuries sustained from the assault earlier that morning.

“ There is no evidence at this stage which suggests that the accident [near Eastdale Lane] played any key role in Mr. Lowe’s cause of death,” Detective-Sergeant Smith said.
