A new development in a 2010 murder triggered a fresh appeal for information on Wednesday (21 November.)
The RCIPS announced that detectives are again actively investigating of the killing of Courtney Spence. He was gunned down in George Town in January 2010.
Mr. Spence was 32-years-old when he was fatally shot in the Progressive Distributors parking lot in Industrial park. He had just finished his shift, and was about to drive home when the shooting occurred.
Crime Stoppers has offered up to $50, 000 in reward money for help in solving the case. The nature of the new development was not released, but deputy commissioner of police Kurt Walton said positive developments are being made.
“We are optimistic about this case at this time, given certain developments,” said DCP Walton.
“We know that there are people out there who know what happened and could have information that help us bring those responsible to justice, and we are asking those people to come forward now,” he said.
Mr. Walton said, “This was a violent and heinous crime, and whenever we as a community have a chance to bring to justice those that commit such acts, and closure to the families of victims, we must do so. If you have any information, please tell us directly or through Crime Stoppers.”
