Kim Simplis’ Bodyguard Arrested and Charged for Murder!

Eduardo Perez Sanchez

So while there are no arrests for the murders of Hyde and Humes, a policeman assigned to the Special Patrol Unit has been charged for another murder. Authorities believe that thirty-three year old Ryon Wagner shot Nicaraguan, Eduardo Perez Sanchez, to the head and dumped his body in a remote location on the Young Gial Road in Teakettle. Wagner is assigned as security detail to the wife of the Prime Minister, Kim Simplis-Barrow. Official details are scarce, but multiple sources claim that Wagner and at least one other police officer went to the Police Station in Belmopan late Friday night and started arguing about who had actually committed the murder. That has not been officially confirmed, and it likely won’t be. The body of Sanchez was actually found by a caretaker in the area headed to work early Saturday morning. This morning, when we got an interview from NCIB Staff Officer, Superintendent Sinquest Martinez, investigations were still underway and no arrests had yet been made.

“Police responded to a call that we received of a body found on the Young Gal Road in Teakettle Village. Upon reaching there we saw the lifeless body of a male Hispanic person with gunshot wounds to his head. The body was then transported to the Western Regional Hospital. The body was later identified as that of Eduardo Manuel Sanchez Perez, a Nicaraguan that worked at Santander.”
