Fifty percent of Bahamas murders unsolved in 2011

first_imgNewsRegional Fifty percent of Bahamas murders unsolved in 2011 by: – December 30, 2011 124 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring! Sharecenter_img Share Tweet Head of the Central Detective Unit, Paul Rolle said that 50 percent of the 125 murders committed in The Bahamas so far this year remain unsolved. Nassau Guardian file photoNASSAU, Bahamas — Nearly 50 percent of the 125 murders committed so far this year in The Bahamas remain unsolved, according to Superintendent Paul Rolle, who heads the Central Detective Unit (CDU).“We are concerned about the high level of murder in the country,” Rolle said. “That’s a big concern. There are 61 murders that have not been solved.”That means that police have a 51 percent murder clearance rate so far this year.However, Rolle said out of those 61 unsolved murders, the police have identified suspects in five of those cases.He said that CDU has circulated wanted posters for the men and is actively searching for them. Rolle added that some of the men who police wanted to question earlier this year in reference to other murders have become victims themselves.“Several suspects have been murdered,” he said, adding that had the police had the opportunity to charge them the murder detection rate would be a little higher.The 125 murders committed so far this year represent the highest number of murders in The Bahamas in one single year in recorded history.The previous record was 94, which was recorded last year.Rolle said despite the large number of murders, his investigators remain steadfast.“I’m not discouraged,” he said. “I don’t like the fact that we have this high number of murders, but at the end of the day their individual action is going to have an overall impact on the whole country.”He encouraged Bahamians to stop taking matters into their own hands.“The message that has to be stressed is you have the institutions that are available to you. When a person decides ‘to hell with that; I’m going to deal with that myself’, this is what you have,” he said. Rolle added that police are continuing to investigate all outstanding matters and are appealing to members of the public who may have information regarding any of the murders to contact police.By Krystel RolleNassau Guardian Staff Reporterlast_img read more
