July 19, 2020

Today [July 19] marks the third anniversary of the murder of Jahcari Francis, and the police have renewed their appeal for information, and have asked witnesses or anyone who may have any information to please contact them.

A police spokesperson said, “Today marks the third anniversary of the murder of Jahcari Francis, who was shot to death whilst inside a residence on Upland Street, Devonshire, shortly after 11pm on Wednesday, 19th July, 2017.”

Detective Sergeant Jason Smith, the officer in charge of the investigation today stated: “On this, the anniversary of the death of Jahcari Francis, the Bermuda Police Service is once again appealing for witnesses to come forward.

“In particular, residents of Upland Street who were at home at the time of this shooting.

“The investigative team is aware that there are residents who were outside of their homes at the time of this shooting and some were driving past the scene, just before and after the shooting.

“This appeal is to your good conscience, come forward and talk to us. The BPS recently put a man before the courts charged with a 2018 murder and this was largely due to witnesses come forward.

“This example is one of many, that murders can be solved when you support your police service.

“Today, the family of Jahcari are still grieving and looking for closure. Today, you the public can make a difference. We want to hear from you.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Senior Investigating Officer Detective Sergeant Jason Smith on 717-0864 or via email at Jsmith2@bps.bm. Alternatively you can call Crime Stoppers at 800-8477.
