    I am sure the Biminites know who was involved. It is just a matter if they will "rat" them out. It is a small place.

    this is all I've seen since..

    "The victim, who goes by the name Freddie Poitier is a resident of Grand Bahama. He had just arrived on the island from the community of Freeport and was not employed on Bimini."

    That use to be the case before Resorts World turned it into a transient community with non-Biminites coming and going constantly.  Lots more "strangers" on what was once a Family Island.
