Brenda Jandrez is Latest Murder Victim in Corozal

Joseph Myvett

A shooting in Corozal has now turned murder and police have been unable to crack this case.  Twenty-two-year-old Brenda Jandrez, a resident of Corozal Town, has succumbed to gunshot injuries after being mortally wounded on November first.  As we reported back then, Jandrez was inside her home on Mahogany Street at around eight-thirty that Wednesday morning, when a single shot was fired into the residence.  The bullet struck the young woman in the stomach while she was in the company of an unidentified male person.  Jandrez was immediately transported to the Corozal Community Hospital, before being transferred to the Northern Regional Hospital in Orange Walk Town and then the K.H.M.H.  She remained in critical condition here in Belize City for almost three weeks, before losing the fight to survive the ordeal on November nineteenth.  The case is now being treated as a homicide and police are looking for two suspects in connection with the deadly shooting. 

 

ACP Joseph Myvett, Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch

“Over the weekend, on the nineteenth morning, Brenda Jandrez passed away.  The police had initially detained two persons when the shooting had recently occurred on the first of November and those two persons are now being sought for further questioning in regards to that matter.”
