Family Demands Justice in Murder of Mark Massam, Criminal Past Notwithstanding!

Mark Massam

But Mark Massam Junior is no stranger to the law; he received a nine-year sentence back in 2005 for a string of robberies in the Orange Walk and Corozal districts. After serving his sentence, in January of 2013, Massam Junior was remanded for firearm offences for an incident in Corozal. He was released earlier this year and now he has been killed. According to his sister, Natalie, the family wants justice for his murder.
