Maybury Murder Suspects Released On Bail

June 15, 2010

The two men arrested yesterday [June 14] in connection with the murder of Frederick Maybury have been released on Police bail. The only information released on them was their ages and parishes; a 44 year old St. George’s man and a 34 year old Southampton man.

Mr Maybury, 34, was fatally shot in the very early hours of yesterday morning outside of Woody’s Restaurant on Malabar Road in Sandys.

At a press conference yesterday, the Police also said there is “some indication” that the suspects may have had access to a boat, and that the marine police unit was involved, with the Police saying they had a “robust response on land and water”. The Police also said that they are getting “early co-operation from people who were there”, and that they have interviewed witnesses in relation to the shooting. They are appealing for anyone with any information to come forward, pointing out it makes the community safer as a whole.

The full statement released today from Detective Chief Inspector Nicholas Pedro, Officer In Charge of the Serious Crime Unit, follows below:

Detectives from the Serious Crime Unit are continuing their enquiries into the brutal murder of Mr. Freddy Maybury at Woody’s Drive Inn on Monday 14th June, 2010.

The two men arrested initially following the incident have been released on Police bail.
Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses or persons with information to come forward and provide any helpful information. The enquiry has entered its second full day. Detectives have conducted witness interviews, house to house enquiries and seized evidence from the scene, including CCTV from nearby locations and Woody’s itself. This evidence is being reviewed, and where appropriate evidence will be sent overseas for processing.

The initial response has been encouraging but we are concerned that some witnesses who might have potentially significant information that can assist the Police have yet to come forward. Detectives will be identifying these persons through various investigative means, if they have not already been seen by the Police.

The investigating team continues to make progress and further updates will be provided to the public as appropriate.

Any witnesses to this incident are encouraged to contact the Serious Crime Unit on 299-8106. In addition, anyone with any information is encouraged to contact the CONFIDENTIAL & independent Crime Stoppers Bermuda hotline on 800-8477 (TIPS).
