Reward offered for information in Sgt. Dwight Davis shooting

From the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force

BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – The Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force is offering a EC$50,000 reward in an effort to solicit information that may lead to the arrest and successful prosecution those responsible for the death of police Sgt. Dwight Davis.

At about 7 a.m. May 3, police received a report of a body being found by two bypassers on a dirt road in the vicinity of the railway line in Dieppe Bay. Several police units responded and, upon arrival, they found the lifeless body of Sgt. Dwight Davis, 37, lying on the ground with what appeared to be gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead by the district medical officer. An autopsy later confirmed that he died as a result of gunshot injuries.

On Monday, May 7, Commissioner of Police Ian M. Queeley delivered an address to the citizens of St. Kitts and Nevis in which he appealed for assistance in bringing to justice to those responsible and pledged that the police force “would leave no stone unturned.”

Anyone who may have information that can move this investigation forward is asked to call any police station or the Violent Crimes Unit at 467-1887, 467-1888, 662-3468.
