Police tight-lipped on evidence against murder suspect Hilmar Alamilla

The murder of twenty-four-year-old Daniel Sosa in Orange Walk continues to rattle the northern community. Sosa was shot on Saturday morning inside a red Dodge Ram pickup belonging to forty-two-year-old Hilmar Alamilla, who was arrested two hours later at his home for the heinous crime. It is believed that Sosa sat across from Alamilla in the front passenger side of the vehicle, when he was fatally shot on the temple. Alamilla is a high profile supporter of former U.D.P. deputy Prime Minister Gaspar Vega and was recently in the news as the middleman who acquired from government a private parcel of land near the Haulover Bridge and sold it to Andre Vega, who was subsequently compensated handsomely. Now, Alamilla, Sosa and two other friends were socializing at the D Gym Club and Sports Bar on Friday night. The shot was fired and caught Sosa, exiting out of the top of his head. It is still unclear as to why Sosa’s body was dumped in D’Victoria hotel’s parking lot. A watchman found the body shortly thereafter and called police. But there is no sign of the firearm allegedly used, or what information police have gathered from eyewitnesses other than Alamilla, who did not speak to them. Also still unclear is any motive for the shooting, and it is a question police do not appear ready to answer.



“Sir, have you consulted the D.P.P.’s office before you brought charges against [Hilmar Alamilla]?”


Superintendent David Chi, Officer Commanding Orange Walk Police

Superintendent David Chi

“Definitely; hundred percent sure.”



“What evidence can you say police were able to find? In the vehicle we saw there was a bullet hole in the passenger windshield; anything else?”


Superintendent David Chi

“I will not disclose that about the evidence; the matter has to go before the court and the evidence will be forthcoming there.”



“The other two individuals that were detained, do we know if they were around when the murder occurred, at that time?”


Superintendent David Chi

“Yes, they were around; hence the reason they were detained.”



“So do we have a confession from them or from anybody else?”


Superintendent David Chi

“I will not get into those. As I said, this matter will go before the court; we will not try it here. That man has his right, will have his day in court, and I will appreciate if you people will follow it and go to court and hear the evidence that will be forthcoming.”


Our first chance to hear that evidence will be on September fifth in Orange Walk.
