Murdered man had dodged 3 serious charges

Damean Dwayne Seymour, a.k.a. ‘Deebo’, was shot and killed on the streets of Grand Cayman 28 Nov 2016

(CNS): The man who was gunned down in broad daylight on the streets of the capital yesterday was 34-year-old Damean Dwayne Seymour, a.k.a. ‘Deebo’. The local man, originally from George Town, had been acquitted by the courts of three serious criminal charges, including murder, attempted murder and robbery. Seymour left Cayman for the UK following his acquittal in 2008 for trying to kill Adolphus Myrie in almost the same spot where he met his own end, which was the third serious criminal allegation he had dodged in four years.

In 2004 he faced charges for the murder of Joseph Alexander Williams but a judge ruled there was no case to answer, and in 2007 he was found not guilty of armed robbery for the West Bay Foster’s Supermarket heist.

Seymour, who had reportedly returned to Cayman just over one year ago, was shot and killed on the corner of Tigris Street and Martin Lane at around 11:45am Monday. Police were out in force at the scene of Seymour’s murder but so far there have been no announcements from the RCIPS regarding arrests or the descriptions of potential suspects.

Seymour is the second person to be murdered in Cayman this year. Justin Manderson, another local man with suspected gang links, was gunned down on the West Bay Road, by Seven Mile Shops, in October. No charges have been made in that case.

    There are a few more fake gangsta like him who have left for the UK to “cool out” after several failed charges for serious criminal offences. It seems to be a trend in the “bobo badman’ world.
    I say let them purge themselves if the “Justice” system can’t or won’t take them out.
    Step back RCIPS, many more to come!!!.
    Da wha yuh get bobo.

    What really annoys me about this story is the fact that as a British expat worker I come here with no more rights than any other expat from any other country . If I have no work permit I have to leave , if I break the law I have to leave , if I have broken the law in the UK I will not get a work permit , when my time is up I have to leave or pay serious money to maybe get PR at some point or maybe not and just be in limbo for years . Yet this fine upstanding citizen can be up in front of a judge on several serious crimes ( including murder ) and be implicated in many more if the stories are to be believed yet has no problem just going off to the U.K to live , no doubt claim housing and benefits , further his criminal career at the expense of British tax payers ( including me as I still pay property tax etc ) and stay there for 9 years until he gets fed up of the cold and then swans back .

    Yeah , seems fair .

      Did you not read the article? The only record he had was ‘not guilty’ so where is the ‘career criminal’. He went to court based on a British system, if you want to blame, blame the UK justice system.

          Well done poster. Well done !

          We have morons in the community who pretend he wasnt a real criminal. And why ? Because we live in a nation of self interest and cowardice people. Yes Cayman locals im talking to you.

          “Deebo” was a real problem to this community and offered nothing but a back scratch to progress. Not proving he was a criminal in our soft courts was in fact a crime itself.

          I for one am relieved to see something being done . Even if it means the criminal element is taking its own garbage out.

        Yes but not a British jury. He, as many are, was found not guilty by Caymanians who cannot be trusted to police or convict each other.
        The system is fine, its the impartiality and moral courage of the juries that is at fault.

        And if you actually were able to police yourselves, you wouldn’t need so many incompetent 3rd world police officers who fail to offer the required evidence to convict.

      To add to that he is not even from Cayman. He was was adopted when his father married his mother from Jamrock then she left him and moved to the US and we got stuck with him. He even served time in Jam for drug and gun smuggling.

      I actually find these local bad men aka “gangstas” to be a joke. Put them in places like Tivoli Gardens JA or certain parts of Honduras and they’d shit their panties just to come back here. Deebo or wtf his name was has been a career criminal. I can only imagine all the murders he got away with but his time came. Good riddance and here’s to hoping all like him, wipe each other out.

        Maybe if he was in Jamaica, which by the way is where he is from, he would still be alive because he would have fitted right in with the rest of the criminals there. Since every post seems to focus on Cayman and Caymanians I had to make this known. I have not seen so much hatred for people in their own country by expats looking for a better life. RIP Deebo….you were a victim of a hateful society where you didn’t stand a chance.

          Hahaha oh yeah he was the victim of society. Maybe his family had short comings or friends . But society offered him schooling and laws which favored his success. He choose the badman life. And he died the badman way. Btw i hope officers attend his funeral to profile his homies.

          So your first point is that he is not Caymanian, and a Jamaican criminal, but your second that he is the subject of hatred from expats in his own country? Which is it – he is a Jamaican being criticised by fellow expats, or he is a Caymanian? Maybe he has a split personality – a poor innocent Caymanian victim of a harsh society trapped in the body of a Jamaican criminal?

          I don’t know if he was born there but his punk ass grew up here in Cayman. Quit trying to pin every bad apple on Jamaica. When Jamaica does good the entire Caribbean wants to take credit for their achievements when they do bad, oh they are Jamaican. So ironic of you hypocritical f%@#$! If he was in Jamaica, perhaps he might have chosen a different career other than being a criminal as he certainly could not keep up with them. If he tried, he would have been taken out a long time ago. Not be able to run off to England to hide out for several years and then run back to his beloved isle Cayman NOT Jamaica.

    Attention all Cayman Gangstas, their baby mamas and some of their family members who like to cloak them in their dirty deeds, please take note of what happens in the end.

    A bullet through the head, an official appointment with our government pathologist, a freezer at Bodden’s or Churchill’s funeral home and the use of our new crematory or a permanent spot in our overfilled cemeteries.

    So the criminals are handing out their own form of justice. Isn’t that great? Now we have to wait for the retaliation killing. And so it goes on. Meanwhile, so many in our society are beating their gums (and their elderly political chests) about the supposed dangers of gays to our culture, traditions and way of life. Between the gays and the gunmen, I know who I worry about most. How about the rest of you?

      @ 10:34am – My vote goes for the gunmen. I personally have no fear whatsoever of the gay couple that live two doors down from me. In fact, they are legally married (just not recognized in Cayman) both hold down jobs, and appear to live a productive non-criminal life.

      On the other hand, I have my non-gay neighbours who consist of, 1 struggling unwed mother and her child with no father figure in sight, a married couple with two young sons, of which the husband beats his wife on a regular basis, a young copule, of which the female works but the male chooses to spend his time driving up and down in the female’s car all day with other women.

      Now, tell me. Who is the danger to our great Caymanian culture, traditions and family life? Or maybe our culture and traditions aren’t all that and a bag of chips?
