Director of Press Office Had Cocaine in his Blood During Fatal March Accident

Dorian Pakeman

Dorian Pakeman, he is the Director of the Government’s Press Office and a familiar face at Government press conferences and other official events. But earlier this year he became part of the news cycle when, back on March thirtieth in Biscayne village, Belize District, he knocked down and killed forty-five year old Dean Dawson, a popular mechanic and father of ten children from neighbouring Gardenia. Pakeman’s fate rests in the hands of the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, who we are told has been reviewing the file since the fatality occurred months ago. While Pakeman confirmed at the time that alcohol was not a factor, today it was revealed that there was a more serious substance. Rural Eastern Division Police dropped a major bombshell today when Commander ACP Edward Broaster confirmed that cocaine was found in Pakeman’s bloodstream at the time of the accident.

“Sir, can you officially now update us on the Dean Dawson file that was sent to the D.P.P.?”

“The Dean Dawson is file is at the D.P.P. and we are awaiting the D.P.P.’s directives on whether or not charges will be laid on Dorian Pakeman.”

 

Reporter

“Can you comment on the substance that was allegedly found in Pakeman’s blood?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“We have gotten back a certificate from the chemist which certified that cocaine was found in Mr. Pakeman’s blood.”

 

You heard right – Pakeman tested positive for cocaine in his bloodstream. How much? Police did not say. What role this plays in the police’s investigation and whether charges will be filed, however, is anybody’s guess.
