Police are appealing to the public for assistance in their quest to track down a murder suspect whom they believe may be hiding in Jamaica.
On Saturday, September 12, 2015, at 3.21 p.m., 43 Division officers found 56-year-old Bevis Larmond lying near the apartment building at 4062 Lawrence Ave. E.
Homicide Detective Shannon Dawson said the victim was in medical distress and was being assisted by 9-1-1 callers when police arrived.
He was rushed to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
Dawson said Larmond had been socializing with friends when he left to go to the store on his bicycle.
“The investigation revealed he was stabbed while on his way to the store,” said Dawson.
Dalvin Lewis, now 49, was identified as being responsible for the murder and, on October 7, 2015, a warrant was issued for his arrest for First-Degree Murder.
Dawson said Lewis is known to use the names ‘Hopeton,’ ‘Jaguar’ and ‘Jaggy.’
He was born in Haddo, Jamaica and has strong ties to the Montego Bay community.
“It’s believed he’s currently hiding in Jamaica,” said Dawson. “Anyone who may be assisting Dalvin Lewis, or has assisted him, will be held accountable and may be arrested for accessory after the fact to the murder. Homicide is appealing to the public for any information on the whereabouts of this person.”
