Murdered man was on bail for kidnapping


Tribune Staff Reporter


A MAN who was killed early yesterday morning was out on bail for abduction, kidnapping and assault and was being electronically monitored, The Tribune understands.

The murder took place shortly after midnight on Tuesday on Nassau Street.

The latest killing brought the country’s murder count to 122 for the year, according to The Tribune’s records.

According to officer-in-charge of the Central Detective Unit, Chief Superintendent Paul Rolle, the victim was at a bar on Matthew Street when he got into an argument with another man.

“Police responded to reports of gunshots in the Matthew Street and Catherine Avenue area. Upon arrival officers met a man suffering from gunshot injuries about the body,” Supt Rolle said.

“Our preliminary investigations indicate that a man was at a night club on Matthew Street when he was involved in an argument with another male. He left the establishment to go home and was walking home when, we aren’t sure what happened, but there were reports of gunshots being discharged. When persons went to check, this male was lying in the street suffering from these injuries.”

Police have not released the identity of the victim, but The Tribune understands he is 29-year-old Randy McNeil.

Chief Supt Rolle confirmed that McNeil was released from prison in April and was being electronically monitored in connection with a kidnapping charge in Andros.

Anyone with information on this homicide is asked to contact police at 911 or 919, the Central Detective Unit at 502-9991 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 328-TIPS.

Investigations continue.

Why was this man not confined to his house / yard under the conditions of the ankle bracelet? Who is responsible for this nonsense? The Courts or the Commissioner of Police? Is there a deliberate policy of allowing these individuals to wander freely around Nassau in the knowledge that they will almost certainly be killed? Is this part of a strategy to reduce the burden on the courts?
