ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- A third person has been charged for the murder of Virgin Islander Trumayne J. Daway, who was riddled with bullets at Brandywine Bay on February 28, 2018.

Officers of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) Major Crime Team today, March 14, 2018, charged Rafael Harrigan, 27, with murder in the shooting death of Daway, according to a RVIPF press release.

Harrigan, who faces two charges in relation to the murder, had originally just been charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, but had not been charged with murder.

Vernon Bernard aka ‘Bones’, 26, a native of Dominica, was also charged with Daway’s murder and unlawful possession of a firearm. Maybelline Rodriguez, 21, a native of the Dominican Republic, was the first to be charged with Daway’s murder.

All three had appeared in Magistrate’s Court on March 6, 2018 and were placed on remand until May 25, 2018.

Harrigan was represented by Attorney-at-Law Patrick Thompson, while Bernard and Rodriquez were unrepresented.

    This gives me hope that the other murder cases can be solved with work from the RVIPF. Putting a killer in jail can never bring a loved one back,but hopefully it can bring some sort of closure knowing that the killer is behind bars and can't take another person's life. I pray those who have information on other murder will find the courage to speak and help bring another killer or killers to justice.

      Police officers didn't solve a thing!!!!!!!!!!!! They followed up on information that came straight to the station. Which confirms that, the public solves murders, not the police. They can only gather information and report it to the ones responsible for imposing punishment and justice.

      People need to talk, Tortola police ain about pounding the pavement to find out sh**. After six oclock they in dem climb in dem hole for the rest of the night just like the rest of us.

      I don't believe that. They are to dumb to have committed any other crime and gotten away with it. Check their history. Check out how they did this one.

      If they were involved in the other shootings,then it shows that they are indeed heartless. I hope the police can find the evidence needed to link them to the other crimes,if not then the other killers are out there and need to be found.

    is the beginning of wisdom.Keep my commandments then we wonder why crime violence and corruption so rampant in di place.We put down our Bibles or let dust gather on most of them and we take up guns and knives and not only stealing from our neighbors but from the country. Gone are the days when we put on some gospel music or Christian radio station early in the morning or at least every Saturday N Sunday. or we send the children to Sunday school and meet them there in time for church worship . No you gone church and children home or gone else where. Either we incorporate some of our traditions or step up on our leadership role in the home. Too many parents have become children and children have become parents.Morning worship should be a thing in all home if not every morning at least once or twice per week your preference. We have to do it as adults whether single parent household or not .Make the BVI stronger against with strong values and ccooperatio coo

      Good question. The place has gone crazy. The criminals have taken over our community and the pedos in prison are living the good life on social media because they were able to smuggle cellphones in. Someone needs to look into how those prisoners are allowed to have phones while they're locked up cause they are free to communicate with others and heaven knows what some of them are capable of.
