Investigation into 2010 murder of Jamaican in George Town reopened

The investigation into the 2010 murder of a Progressive Distributors employee has been reactivated following new developments in the case.

Courtney Spence, a Jamaican national who lived in Bodden Town, was gunned down at his work parking lot on January 28, 2010.

While the case had since gone cold, police on Wednesday reported that detectives were again actively investigating the murder.

In reactivating the investigation, officers appealed to the public for any information that can be of assistance to the investigation. 

Cayman Crime Stoppers is partnering with the RCIPS in making the appeal, and is offering up to $50K for information leading to the arrest, charge and conviction of the person(s) responsible for this violent firearm murder.

“We are optimistic about this case at this time, given certain developments,” said Kurt Walton, Deputy Commissioner of Police.

“We know that there are people out there who know what happened and could have information that help us bring those responsible to justice, and we are asking those people to come forward now,” he added.
