Bahamas police seek killers of British man who was a Canadian resident during home invasion
Nassau, Bahamas — A British citizen visiting the Bahamas was killed in a home invasion robbery in an upscale Emerald Bay neighbourhood of Grand Bahama.
Dead we can now report is Edgar George Dart, a 56-year-old who lived in Winnipeg was shot and killed when three masked intruders burst into his family’s home in the Lucaya neighbourhood, said Assistant Commissioner Emrick Seymour of the Royal Bahamas Police Force confirmed.
Dart was visiting his mother’s home when he apparently struggled with one of the assailants as they tied up family members with duct tape during the Tuesday morning attack, Seymour said.
The attackers had apparently cut phone service to the house before the attack. They fled in a gardener’s van.
No suspects are in custody and Seymour appealed to the public for help. “We are right in the middle of our investigation into this situation and we are following some leads,” he said.
It was the sixth homicide of the year on Grand Bahama. There have been about 30 for all of the Bahamas, an island chain just off the coast of Florida.
