Pedestrian Henry Schucair Robinson (65) was found unresponsive in the vicinity of Anton Bodden Drive on Sunday evening around 7:15 pm.

The matter is under investigation by the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service and officers are appealing for witnesses.
On Monday morning before 7:00 am, Shaun Ryan Newell (35) died after his motorcycle collided with a school bus on Shamrock Road near Mimosa Drive.
