Update: INDECOM investigation into fatal shooting of Susan Bogle
May 31, 2020 – The Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) began an investigation into the fatal shooting of Susan Bogle in August Town on May 27, 2020.
We are aware of the heightened attention of this particular case and others where there are more questions than answers forthcoming in the early stages of the investigation. We assure the public that there will be a thorough investigative process and Susan Bogle’s family will be apprised of the details that can be disclosed.
In the absence of body worn cameras or other video recording, this case relies on the accounts of the concerned officers, but the post mortem examination and report, ballistic report, forensic reconstruction and eye witness reports will assist in securing an independent account.
Since the investigation commenced, the investigative team has been in the community daily, seeking witnesses to the incident and persons with other viable information. We urge anyone with information to contact our offices at (876) 968-8875, (876) 968-1932 or message us on whatsapp at 876-553-5555.
Our crime scene examiners have collected all viable forensic material for testing. Test firing of the weapons and examination of the recovered spent casings will be conducted, and the ballistic report provided after completion. INDECOM will also be consulting our international forensic expert who will provide assistance on this case.
On the day of the incident, Susan Bogle’s body was photographed and then forensically secured, and is being stored pending the post mortem examination by the Government Pathologist.
Concerned officers attended the offices of the Commission and interviews were conducted under oath. As the investigation continues, additional officers from the joint police/military team will be interviewed. All members from the team are required to provide statements to the Commission.
There are several components of the investigation, and we ask for your patience and understanding as we work to uncover the truth.
