Police offering $20K reward in double murder probe

The East End Police Station on Tortola.

The police are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of those responsible for the double murder that happened on the eastern end of Tortola a little more than a week ago.

Kawa Cornwall and Kadeem Frett were killed after gunmen opened fire near the Wayside Bar in Fat Hog’s Bay around 8:30 pm on October 21. Two others, including a minor, were injured.

Police Commissioner Mark Collins described the shootings as brazen and reckless and said, “so many more persons could have lost their lives during the early evening hours of this vicious assault”.

He further appealed for the public’s help in exposing illegal points of entry for firearms distributors.

The top cop noted at the time that the police recently confiscated more than 75 firearms, adding that a semi-automatic assault rifle, a Glock pistol, and an imitation firearm were seized just a month ago.

Persons with information may contact the Major Crime Team at 284-368-5682 or the RVIPF Intelligence Unit at 284-368-9339.
