I know that everyone across our three islands feels a sense of shock and revulsion over the shooting on Monday, which resulted in the death of a former Prison Officer. Mr Elliott was a well-loved member of our community. He will be greatly missed. I send my deepest condolences to his family and friends, including former colleagues at HM Prison. They are all in our prayers.
The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service are doing all they can to swiftly identify and bring to justice the perpetrators of this terrible crime. I have every confidence in them. In my time as Governor, I have been impressed with the success of RCIPS in identifying for prosecution those suspected of the most serious crimes. I join RCIPS in making a direct appeal to everyone on our Islands to come forward with any information about this crime. This type of incident is not the Cayman I have come to admire and respect. If you have any information please contact RCIPS so they can apprehend those responsible for this heinous crime and obtain justice for the family of Mr Elliott.
