The local football community was in shock over the murder of the well liked footballer, with the Bermuda Football Association President Mark Wade stating, “Football has suffered another tragic loss. A family has received a call that no family should. Osagi Bascome represented Bermuda with distinction at all levels of international football. We mourn a life taken from us too soon.

“On behalf of the Bermuda Football Association Executive and members I send our thoughts and prayers to the St. Georges Cricket Club, the Foggo and Bascome families, the St. Georges Community, as well as ‘Sagi’s’ friends and teammates.”

Dante Leverock – who has played alongside Mr Bascome on the Bermuda National Team for years — was one of the many local footballers who paid tribute to him, saying, “A great person and great teammate, could light up a room was always smiling, cracking jokes making sure those around him were in a great mood. So many experiences together traveling the world playing this game football we loved so much. A part of the golden generation we all made history together, a genuine person.

“I’m honored to have played on the same team as you. Even more honored to have been your friend. A massive loss of talent, massive loss for Bermuda, most importantly been taken away from his family his loved ones. You are a legend Sagi, I love you brother.”

The police have launched a murder investigation and anyone with any information is urged to call the Police Serious Crime Unit on 295-0011 or 211 or you can call Crime Stoppers on 800-8477.
