FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – July 26, 2017

Cocoa Police Investigation Received

In Jamel Dunn Drowning Case

Today our office received the Cocoa Police Department’s investigative report surrounding the July 9th, 2017 drowning death of Jamel Dunn. We’ve been asked to review those findings and determine if a criminal offense may have been committed by anyone connected to the incident.

There is no timeline for completion and our office will conduct an exhaustive inquiry into the information provided by the Cocoa Police Department, as well as pursue any investigative leads or information uncovered during that process.

While the investigation is active and under review, all of the information related to this case is exempt from public record. Our long standing policy is not to offer public comment on open investigations or pending prosecutions. However out of sensitivity to the strong emotional effect this case has had on our community and the public at large, we wanted to confirm the process is moving forward in a careful, thoughtful and deliberate manner.

We greatly appreciate the understanding of Mr. Dunn’s family and the community as we work diligently to complete this process.
