Police investigate death at sea

Press Release:-Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a thirty three (33) year old resident of Dennery namely, Yves Mitchel James.

During a maritime operation on Saturday, July 22, 2017, about 1:00 a.m. approximately 2.1 nautical miles off the coast of Vieux Fort, a local fishing canoe identified as “Indeblue”, collided with the Marine Unit vessel.

Prior to the collision, several attempts were made to stop said vessel, but to no avail.

There were three individuals on the canoe, who were thrown overboard as a result of the collision, who were rescued by officers attached to the Marine Unit.

Of the three individuals rescued, Yves Mitchel James appeared to have an injury and as a result, he was conveyed to the St. Jude Hospital via ambulance. He was pronounced dead by a medical practitioner about 3:33 a.m.

On Monday, July 24, 2017, a post mortem examination was conducted, which revealed that he died as a result of traumatic brain injury evidenced by global subarachnoid haemorrhage” (bleeding around the brain) and cerebral contusion (bruising of the brain) secondary to comminuted fractures to the cranium.

Investigations are ongoing in this matter.

    While we are probably speculating what may have happened to the dead man?It sounds like there might have been some kind of failure to stopped the canoe.When persons are suspected of doing illegal drug activities.Failure to comply with the law,may end up bloody.I doubt it was a collision.Telling lies has taken over the world from centuries until now.People are just not speaking the truth.

    Did the canoe collide with the Marine Police vessel or did the Police vessel ram the canoe thereby causing the death of the Dennery resident?
