Murdered Man Was On Bail Over Rape Charge

THE COUNTRY’S latest murder victim was on bail for rape and was also recently questioned by police in connection with three other sexual assaults, The Tribune understands.

On Wednesday shortly after 3pm, police say they received information that shots were heard at the back of the Dundas Centre for the Performing Arts on Mackey Street. When they arrived on they scene, they found a Honda Civic on fire.

After extinguishing the blaze, police say they discovered the body of a man in the passenger seat of the vehicle, burnt beyond recognition.

Police have not identified the victim, but sources say he is 30-year-old Nekos Felix Kemp.

Kemp, who was wearing an ankle monitoring bracelet, was out on bail charged with a rape that occurred in 2012. Sources say he was released from police custody earlier this week, after being questioned for a series of other sexual assaults.

Police are on the hunt for four men believed to be involved in the killing.

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

In other crime news, police are requesting the public’s help in solving an armed robbery that happened at Wednesday.

According to reports, shortly before 10pm a man was sitting in his vehicle in front of his home on St Andrews Drive off Village Road when two men, armed with a handgun, robbed him of his black 2009 Honda Accord and sped off.

Investigations continue.

Vigilante justice...can't say it's right, and don't condone it...but good riddance...sounds like this person was a waste of space and resources...you start violating other people's women and wives and heaven forbid children though and you can get some pretty drastic reactions and such from their loved ones. I suspect this is what it came down to.

This is what happens when a country's judicial system fails. Bahamians should be concerned about this murder, not only because someone has been unlawfully killed, but because the country is moving slowly towards a state of anarchy.

I hope that this is the end...we have now become a society where a vicious cycle of retaliation ensues.

SMFT, My favorite cuz was murdered Wednesday, and thank God for the family that I have we will not let anything go in vain, the police force, media and simply dum ass ppls that are saying and sending out the wrong message to the public. The fact of the matter is my cousin was picked up from his residence and taken to CDU for his bail condition not knowing that he would be later quizzed on a rape charge. My cousin was locked up for 5 days and released without charges about 6:30 that very morning of his death. My thing about this whole situation is that the whole force knew that they made my cuz an informant for the police and they did not protect him. The officers at CDU knew exactly what was about to happen to my cuz that day, but most of all what bothers the family the most is that my cuz had on an ankle bracelet, they lost signal from it from about 3 to 3:30, but the family was never notified. When they can't reach him they usually come banging on the door so where were they on that day and the day after? The family is saddened with the lost of our love one, so I say to you police officers and the media we the family don't need any negativity from you all we want JUSTICE for the cowards who murdered our NEKOS FELIX KEMP. And for all who was apart of this brutal crime remember the God we serve don't wear pajamas. I hope you 4 cowards who took the life of 1 man DID SMILE FOR THE CAMERAS.

I don't understand what him being picked up had to do with him being killed. From your statement he was picked up from home, I suppose they released him back to his house since that's where they picked him up.if someone wanted to get him, they must have known where he lived. Again from your statement I'm guessing this isn't the first time he was picked up "for his bail condition". Do they pick him up regularly? Why was he wearing an ankle bracelet anyway? Cowards is right, there are a lot of people who commit crimes out of eyesight, then they walk among us as if nothing ever happened.

Unless The Tribune got their facts wrong, he was out on bail for an existing charge of rape. I'm sorry to sound disrepectful bahamianbeauty, but I have no sympathy or time for rapists and child abusers...even less time for them then cold hard killers and murderers. They rapists are a totally different type of criminal. Now...he was not CONVICTED of it, so there is obviously that innocent until proven guilty part...whether he did it or not, now we will never know. My only other thoughts on this, after adding your comments into it is this...he's out on bail for rape, he is questioned on other rapes and released, and in your words he is informing police of other crimes he has knowledge on. Sounds like the criminal element was entrenched in his soul. To his defense though, at least he was trying to assist police with information...for that I give him props.

Does viligante justice involve police? Many persons who are killed in this fashion seems o either have had recent contact with police, recently released from jail or police custody or was supposed to be under some police protection/suvallience. Regardless of how bad the crime, no one person or unauthorized group of people ( was the four men seen running away) a smoke screen? can take justice in their own hands and decided who dies? Even the worst heinous criminal deserves his day in court.

Almost certain that the police are 'using' the system.

This will be my last comment on this situation, after i give you the facts come to your own conclusion. He was indeed on bail accused of raping his baby's mother. The police came for him in the early morning hours told him it was a condition of his bail. After arriving at the station they told him he was being investigated for a series of rape after 5 days he was released after he agreed to become an informant for the police. If you remember the drug in Kemp Road he inform the police who was who. The cowards was indeed arrested and held at the same station as my cousin the POLICE informed the cowards who tipped them off. My cousin was released on the same date that he died. At 2:00 p.m. that day he received a call told his mother he will be back left with a short pants on and dragging slippers nothing else on his feet to obstruct the view or signal of his ankle bracelet. At about 2:30 his girlfriend called him asked where he was he said he was at the back of CDU she told him after all them days they had you, you shouldn't want to see that place. He told her he was waiting on the police to give him a GUN to go and plant in the yard where the drug bust occurred because the police was not happy with that bust. This was the last contact any on my family members had with him. He was later found burnt around 3:30 or there about off Mackey Street which is in close proximity to Kemp Road. Don't believe everything that you hear in the media. BY ALL MEANS HE WAS NO ANGEL BUT WAS LOVED AND WILL ALWAYS BE LOVED.

These cowards that you talk about...he had to be one of them didn't he...to get that close he had to be one of them and trusted with their drug dealing plans...he had to be involved with it to get that close. His boys killed him. For whatever reason his own boys killed him. He chose the life that got him killed. Did he rape his child's mother, we will never know. We do know, "he was no angel" and the life he chose killed him, nobody else.

On another note, I really wish our young men would see education as one of their choices. This country is so hungry for educated young men, business snap them up in a heartbeat and promote them quickly through the ranks

Obviously you're not a strategic thinker. I've heard a theory that smart investors capitalize when prices are down. What you're saying and it absolutely makes no sense to me, is that the boy in grade 5,6,10,11 should quit school today because no one is hiring today. Because I was obviously not saying that Nekos should have taken a one week course then go looking to be snatched up. And for your information the company I work for just hired a very mannerly young man and I see good signs in him. People are hiring, the jobs aren't plentiful but they are hiring, read the newspaper adds, look at the educational requirements.

The point is if the police are using criminally tainted young men to do their dirty work for them then killing them or causing them to lose their life this is still W R O N G. If the police was that involved with this young man in his final hours of life, they know who kill him. So they stop killing them in custody now they release them and have it done ( the murder) on the streets. The murder count goes up, the public panics and the crime goes unsolved...The police force is the biggest criminal gang in the country....and they are publically funded

Thats a very unpolitically correct statement to make - police gang (oxymoron)

However there may be a tinge of truth to it.

BTW - the police must be very frustrated having serial criminals getting bail daily and sticking it right up their royal asses.............. jeering them on the streets each day

To catch criminals............. one must think like a criminal

I think, therefore I am
