Commissioner of Police Mr. James Smith stated, “This is the second murder of a young woman in a short period of time. We are not yet in a position to link these murders but we encourage all members of our communities to take care of each other and themselves, be cautious if you are a lone female, do not place yourself in a vulnerable position, do not accept rides from strangers and if you’re going out with anyone make sure you notify someone of who the person is and give description of their vehicle. My officers are out in the communities, patrolling, conducting stop and searches and doing our utmost best to prevent crime and detect offenders but we cannot do it alone.”

“The motive for these horrific crimes is not known but it is clear that someone has a complete disregard for human life. If Someone among you knows their identity, suspects someone, or has information that will lead us to the killer. It is your duty as a citizen to come forward. It is time to protect our women, protect our communities and protect the future of the nation. Do the right thing and help us bring those responsible to justice and support the victims and families of these terrible crimes.”
