The identity of the bikie found dead in a swimming pool at a popular resort in Broome has been revealed as ex-Rebel-turned Comanchero gang member Jason Kemp. WA Police have confirmed about 12.10pm on Saturday, local police and St John ambulance were called to reports of an unresponsive male — now identified as Kemp — at The Pearle of Cable Beach resort located on Millington Road. The West Australian understands Kemp - ages in his 30s - was found floating face down in the private pool of his villa. He is believed to have been staying at the five-star resort with his girlfriend. His cause of death has not yet been determined but was believed to have been accidental, with the investigation remaining in the hands of Broome detectives rather than homicide squad officers. The resort is just two kilometres away from the popular Cable Beach, which attracts thousands of tourists a year. A villa at The Pearle remained cordoned off on Sunday morning with a police vehicle parked outside. Two years ago — in May 2021 — Kemp, then a patched member of the Rebels, was bashed to the brink of death while locked up at Casuarina Prison awaiting trial on a string of drug and driving charges. The savage daytime beating, which left Kemp with severe head and facial injuries, came at the hands of a fellow Rebels inmate in what was described as an “internal skirmish”. Then Deputy Police Commissioner Col Blanch at the time said the alleged assault was the result of “infighting within the one club”, rather than the building tensions between bikie gangs in the wake of the fatal shooting of Rebels boss Nick Martin just five months earlier. At a subsequent court hearing a month later, where Kemp applied for a home detention order while facing 25 separate charges, it was revealed that he was “no longer a member of that club”. Photos posted to Kemp’s Instagram account suggest the bikie defected from the Rebels to join the Comancheros within that time. A photo posted on March 17, 2021, shows Kemp sporting a large “Rebels” tattoo on his forearm. Four months later on July 15, he posted another photo that appears to show the tattoo had been blacked out before it was published to the platform. Just four days on he revealed a fresh-looking “Comanchero” tattooed along his forearm in place of where his ex-gang Rebels inking had been. During the June court hearing, at which Kemp appeared by videolink from Casuarina Prison, State Prosecutor Jason Chu said he was “not sure what we can make of the (bashing) in prison”. He also opposed the attempt to have Kemp bailed to home detention. “The State says ‘enough is enough’,” Mr Chu said at the time. “It’s actually quite amazing that he’s been allowed in the community for this long.” He told Justice John MGrath within nine days of being sentenced, fined and disqualified from driving for a year, Kemp allegedly drove again, which was captured on CCTV. Two weeks later, on March 27, he allegedly drove again and subsequently allegedly committed nine other traffic offences including reckless driving to escape police pursuit. “This is a man who was prepared to drive in an extremely dangerous manner,” Mr Chu said, describing Mr Kemp as having a “complete lack of regard for the law”.
