Seamus Secord Obituary, Death – The RNC Operational Patrol Services responded to a request for help on February 7, 2023, at around 5:00 p.m. in St. John’s following a report of a man who was in distress near Mayor Avenue and Newtown Road. When the police arrived on the site, they discovered 22-year-old St. John’s resident Seamus Secord in critical condition with potentially fatal injuries.
Medical staff at the hospital to which he was sent ruled Seamus Secord dead since he was unable to recover from his wounds. As soon as it became apparent that the death was suspicious, the RNC Serious Crimes Unit launched an investigation, and they worked closely with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner throughout the whole process. On February 9, 2023, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner concluded that the premature death was the result of murder.
When the investigation was given to them, a Large Case Management Team was formed to handle it.
Robert BELBIN, a 21-year-old resident of St. John’s, was named a suspect as a direct result of the inquiry.
Members of the RNC Criminal Investigation Division (CID) identified and captured BELBIN in the West End of St. John’s on the evening of February 17, 2023, at 6:00 p.m.
BELBIN was transported to prison successfully, where he will now be charged with second-degree murder and contempt of court. The Republican National Committee extends its heartfelt condolences to Seamus Secord’s family, friends, and loved ones (RNC). The public’s participation and assistance during this examination are appreciated, and the Republican National Committee would like to express its gratitude.
The RNC is aware of the possible repercussions of such a tragic tragedy and urges anybody who might need support to get in touch with the RNC Mobile Crisis Support Team at 709-729-8000 or 811 for help with mental health issues.
