Hattieville Teen in Court for Marcel Samuels Murder

Blake Norman Lewis

There’s a break in Friday’s murder of Marcel Samuels. Eighteen-year-old Blake Norman Lewis, a construction worker of Myvette Street in Hattieville Village, was arrested and charged for the murder of the sixty-two-year-old jeweler and butcher of Cemetery Lane in Belize City. This afternoon, Lewis appeared before Chief Magistrate Sharon Fraser and read a single charge of murder and the matter was adjourned for November seventeenth for a preliminary inquiry.  The murder charge stems from the deadly shooting that happened in Butcher Burns on Friday morning shortly before six.

Marcel Samuels

Samuels and his wife were heading to his farm when two men rode past them on a motorcycle. One of the men took out a gun firearm and fired a fatal shot which caught Samuels in the head. The other then used a machete to hit Samuels’ wife before she managed to escape. The farmers believe Samuels was murdered because of a pending matter before the courts. They say that for years Samuels had been losing livestock to thieves who operate in the Butcher Burns area just outside of Hattieville.

    Execute those murderers. Our laws are too lenient . Until we start to eliminate them things will fix up. Murderers see that they can easily get away with their acts and they do not think twice to commit murder. Innocent people are suffering and the government can not do anything.
