Police Warn On “Fake News”

Police cautioning members of the public on spreading ‘fake news” regarding a recent homicide on the island of Abaco.


The body of the 25-year-old mother of three Harderia Bootle, was discovered partially covered in bushes in Marsh harbor, Abaco, on Thursday.


In a statement Police said this stems from the contents of a WhatsApp message that insinuates that the family of the young woman who was killed has apparently taken matters into their own hands.




Police are urging members of the public to desist from spreading malicious rumours on people who are targeted, which they say is causing undue grief to family members and panic in the community.


An adult male relative of the missing woman is in custody assisting police in the investigations.

Relatives have said the community has suffered a great loss and all the family wants is justice for the death of the young mother.

Harderia’s death marks the 117th for the year according to The Journal’s records.
