2 Men Arrested for Murder of Fireman in Dangriga

As we told you on Wednesday night, Dangriga Police recovered the shotgun used and detained suspects in the latest homicide of that municipality. Well, we can confirm that two men have been charged with the murder of fifty-one-year-old Ralston Patnett. The men, thirty year old Brandon Mason Kerr and thirty-two-year old Lindsburgh Oxford Williams were charged for the killing of the former fireman when they appeared in court in Dangriga today. Patnett, a former fireman who was a caretaker at beach front property in Dangriga, was killed in the early hours of Sunday morning when the car he was driving was riddled with bullets and then set on fire. It happened shortly after midnight on Sunday immediately in front of the driveway to the property, Bella Vita, where Patnett was staying. As to the motive, reports are that Williams once did business with the owners of Bella Vita who live abroad but after they stopped conducting business with Williams, they then started working with Patnett which sparked a jealousy that led to murder. A postmortem conducted on Patnett’s body classified the cause of death as injuries to lungs, heart and liver due to chest and abdominal trauma due to gunshot injuries.

    because they hold greivance against the owner? They murdered another belizean because he got the job? Are you kidding me???? These men should be hung. And quick. we don’t need them in our society.

  2. Al says:

    Killed a man because his employer choose him as an employee. The owner must have a good reason why he stopped doing business with Williams. This is a hanging crime.
