The Castro Brothers Sought for Beating on Ambergris Caye

Wasani & Jafari Castro

We can finally confirm tonight that the San Pedro police are looking for Wasani and Jafari Castro, following the aggravated assault of twenty-one-year-old Kevin Brown at a resort on the island since the weekend. Police say that the sons of Minister Edmond “Clear the Land” Castro cannot be located since Sunday, but had beaten Brown to an unconscious state on Saturday night, over the Costa Maya Festival weekend.  Just before nine o’clock that night, Brown was with a group of friends at Banana Beach Resort when a dispute arose over a piece of jewelry. It is alleged that the Castro siblings kicked him all over the body, before picking up a fire extinguisher and hitting him over the head, causing him to go unconscious. Brown was rushed to the San Pedro Polyclinic, before he was airlifted to Belize City for further medical care.

Brown’s aunt has since informed News Five that he was released and is recovering at home. Police today said they are looking for the troublesome duo. We have been following this story since Monday and when we reached Minister Castro, he told us that one of his sons was not in the country since Sunday, but the incident happened on Saturday.

“I was made to understand that there are certain allegations being made against your two sons in respect of an incident in San Pedro.  Are you aware or can you provide comment?”

 

On the Phone: Edmond “Clear the Land” Castro

“I don’t think you started off correct because one of my sons is not even in the country.”

 

Isani Cayetano

“Okay.”

 

On the Phone: Edmond “Clear the Land” Castro

“He has been away for at least, from early Sunday morning.  So I don’t know how it could be my two sons.  So with that said, I have nothing more to say, noh.”

    Wolves dress in sheep clothing. This man should have never been elected to government. Somebody like this could never be someones’ representative.
