Man murdered in Cable Beach home

Marcus Hinsbey, a property manager for the gated western condominiums called The Venito on Atlantic Drive, was found dead inside his home by police yesterday.

Concerned co-workers, who said they had not heard from Hinsbey, an expat from Britain, contacted police around 10:30 a.m. yesterday, said Chief Superintendent Chrislyn Skippings.

“…Police, along with [another] property manager here, breached the condominium occupied by the deceased,” Skippings said.

When officers got inside, they found Hinsbey, who was in his early 60s, with multiple lacerations, she said.

He appeared to have been left in that state for at least a day, she said.

Neighbors claimed they heard loud banging noises coming from Hinsbey’s top floor unit on Saturday night. The Venito condos, built in 2013, consist of three buildings, that are three stories tall, with 12 units each.

Skippings said the victim’s home was locked when officers arrived and police suspect that the killer was known to Hinsbey.

Hinsbey was a veteran employee of Cable Bahamas and served as a technical account manager.

The board of Cable Bahamas extended condolences to his family.

Shocked residents of the community looked on as police, EMS and mortuary personnel moved about the quiet gated community.

Skippings said police are aggressively looking for the killer.

This latest killing has pushed the murder count to 99 for the year so far.
