Cayman 27 – ARCHIVE

Police will investigate murder, if new evidence arises

A week in which our news has been dominated by one thing, and one thing only.

The acquittal of Devon Anglin who was accused of shooting dead a four year old boy.

Six years ago Jeremiah Barnes was shot dead as he sat in his Dad’s car in a West Bay gas station.
Anglin was tried, cleared. The case appealed and tried again.

On Tuesday (19 January) for a second time he was found not guilty.

Cayman 27 asked police if in light of the not guilty verdict, will they be reopening the murder investigation.

A spokeswoman for the RCIPS said: “The detectives and officers assigned to this case worked tirelessly to ensure that all possible lines of inquiry were exhausted and that all available evidence was obtained and put before the court.

“At this point we are not seeking additional evidence, but will investigate if new evidence arises.”
