Appeal to Stop Circulating Photo Showing Aftermath of Serious Collision [Updated]

Wed, 2021-04-07

The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) is aware of an image circulating via social media showing the aftermath of a serious collision involving two motorcycles that occurred last night (Tuesday, April 6th) on Middle Road in Warwick, near the junction with Belmont Hills Drive – in the vicinity of the Belmont Hills golf course.

Initial information indicates that one of the male motorcyclists involved is currently in the Intensive Care Unit at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, while the other male motorcyclist received treatment at the hospital for less serious injuries.

At a 12 noon press conference today (Wednesday, April 7th) regarding the active investigation into the murder of 37-year-old Jordan Outerbridge, Detective Superintendent Nicholas Pedro confirmed that the circumstances of the Middle Road, Warwick collision are also being investigated – including the possibility that one of the individuals involved in the collision may be linked to the fatal shooting of Mr. Outerbridge. [Read press conference statement] [Watch press conference video].

However, as was stated in the press conference, it is still early in both investigations and the potential link between the two incidents has not been confirmed at this time.

Apparently some on social media have suggested that one of the individuals shown in the image being circulated is the murder victim, Mr. Outerbridge. This is simply not true.

The BPS would urge members of the public not to further circulate the image of the serious collision aftermath and to refrain from speculation regarding the murder of 37-year-old Jordan Outerbridge – for the sake of his grieving family and loved ones.
