6 months on, no charges in Brac fatality

The scene at Watering Place Road on Cayman Brac where Mitchell Marvin Ryan was killed in an apparent hit-and-run on 22 March.

Six months after Cayman Brac resident Mitchell Marvin Ryan was knocked down and left to die at the side of the road, no one has been charged in relation to his death.

A 28‑year-old female suspect was detained in the case back in May. She was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. The Cayman Brac woman was granted bail. Since then, there have been no further updates on the case.

Police told the Compass this week that their investigations into Ryan’s death are still ongoing and it is “progressing”.

Ryan, 55, was killed on 22 March.

The Cayman Brac man was found unresponsive in the street on Watering Place Road, near La Esperanza Bar and Restaurant.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

No vehicle was present when police arrived.

Police indicated that the circumstances strongly suggested Ryan was the victim of a hit-and-run.

Officers from the Traffic and Roads Policing Unit were deployed to Cayman Brac at the time of the incident to assist with inquiries.
