Renewed Jordan Outerbridge Murder Witness Appeal

Fri, 2021-05-07

Detective Superintendent Nicholas Pedro, Officer in Charge, BPS Crime Division - Sadly, today marks one month since the brutal murder of Jordan Outerbridge. One month since his children lost a father, and a wife lost her husband.

Despite our continued best efforts, we have so far not received the public response we had hoped for in a case that involved the senseless killing of a man.

As such, we are re-issuing a call for anyone who may know anything about the murder of Jordan Outerbridge, to come forward and say something.

Crime Stoppers can be a very helpful option in that regard.

They exist to help people who – for whatever reason – won't, or can't speak directly to the police, but want to do the right thing. Crime Stoppers guarantees that you will remain 100 per cent anonymous. They are not interested in who you are and will never, ask for your details – all they want is information, however small, that might help find those behind this murder.
