Police renew appeal for witnesses to brutal attack

Detectives investigating a brutal attack which took place in January are making a fresh appeal to the public for information leading to the identity of the offenders.

In the early hours of 5 January, two men viciously attacked a security guard working at the Cayman Islands National Archive.

He was Carmo Dias, a 32-year-old Indian national of William Drive, Windsor Park.

Mr. Dias later apparently committed suicide and was found dead on Tuesday, 7 March at his home address.

‘We want the public to know that despite this man’s death the investigation into the assault on him is still very much active,’ Deputy Commissioner Anthony Ennis said.

‘This was a very serious attack which caused Mr. Dias to spend a number of days in hospital. We are doing everything we can to locate the perpetrators but we also need the public’s help.

‘I appeal to anyone with information on this incident to come forward and assist the police in bringing those responsible to justice.’

Police said one of the offenders is described as being between 5ft 6ins and 5ft 8ins tall, having a dark complexion, medium build and shoulder length, dreadlocked hair that looks thickly bunched or matted.

Police are asking anyone with information – no matter how insignificant they might think it is – to contact Acting Detective Inspector Livingston Bailey, the lead investigating officer at George Town police station, on 949-4222 or by email at [email protected].

People can call Crime Stoppers on 800 TIPS (8477). Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a financial reward should their information lead to an arrest.
