Police Charge Alleged Killer of Randolph Johnson

Elden Edward Flowers

Police have cracked the second of six murders that occurred over a four-day period. It’s been two days since the murder of Police Street resident nineteen-year-old Randolph Johnson and tonight, another Belize City youth, nineteen-year-old Elden Edward Flowers, a resident of Croton Lane has been charged for his execution. Late this evening, Flowers appear before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer and was arraigned for a single charge of murder. No plea was taken and Flowers was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until February twenty-third, 2017. Flowers is accused of ambushing Johnson while he was fishing near the Belize Waste Control Compound on the George Price Highway with friends, sometime after two p.m.   “Tunutz” as he was affectionately known, was shot to the chest, leg and hand and died within minutes. Here’s what Johnson’s aunt told News Five on that tragic day.

The accused, Flowers, is no stranger to the police. In 2016, he and two others were charged for burglary when they were caught red-handed by the police. At the time of the shooting murder of Johnson, Flowers was out on bail pending trial for that burglary case.
