The Police investigating on the disappearance and pronounced death of comic book artist Norman Lee, have announced the FBI’s new involvement in the still open case. There is nothing to be too worried about with this new development to a case that hasn’t had any action since searches for the missing artist were then changed to recovery and then pronounced death.
In a statement to Grand Cayman’s local news station Cayman 27, the police said,
“As is done on all investigations involving missing persons from other jurisdictions, authorities from the other jurisdiction, in this case the FBI, are working with us on what continues to be an open investigation.”
The same news station Cayman 27, also reports that the RCIPS has declined to say whether foul play is suspected in Lee’s disappearance.
Spokespeople for FBI’s offices in Boston confirmed to local news papers (Patriot Ledger) that the agency is assisting the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, but declined to offer any further details.
The investigation over the disappearance of Norman Lee, the veteran comic book inker who vanished March 5 while snorkeling with his wife in the Cayman Islands about 250 yards from shore, when reported strong waves separated the couple. An extensive air and water search was called off after three days without uncovering any single signs of Lee. Fellow artist and creators all showed respects to the fallen artist in the weeks and months following Lee’s pronounced death.
