VIPD: We Are Investigating How Jeremy Kelly of Georgia Died Near Frenchman’s Bay in St. Thomas

FOUND DEAD: Jeremy Kelly

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Police today said that they are investigating the death of a Georgia native who was discovered by police after he was reported Dead on Arrival (DOA) by hospital officials early this morning.

The Major Crime Unit was dispatched to Roy Schneider Regional Medical Center about 8:30 a.m. today after receiving a report of a man that a man who died near Frenchman’s Bay was at the hospital now, the Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) said.

The police investigator said that he found an unresponsive “white Caucasian male” there who was later identified by his wife as being 44-year-old Jeremy Alan Kelly of Savannah, Georgia, according to VIPD and social media reports.

Most of the pictures on Facebook (see link below) show Kelly racing motorbikes and custom sports racing cars.

On social media, Kelly posted beach pictures from St. Thomas and used a picture of himself lying on a beach in the territory as his profile picture.

The case is currently under active investigation by the Major Crime unit, police said.

Anyone with information about this incident are asked to contact the Investigation Bureau at (340) 774-2211 or (340) 714-9830. You can also contact Crimestoppers VI at 1-800-222-8477 or 911.

PROPHETIC PICTURE: Police did not officially say how Jeremy Kelly died, where he was from or the circumstances of his death that would cause them to investigate it.

A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests.
