Wanted Jaime Pelayo murder suspect George Bull on the run after fleeing police

George Bull

In respect of another murder, an all-points bulletin has been issued for the arrest of twenty-nine-year-old George Bull, a resident of Carmelita Village in the Orange Walk District. Bull is wanted in connection with the December fifteenth murder of Jaime Pelayo outside of a nightclub in Orange Walk Town. While the construction worker has been positively identified as the triggerman in the deadly shooting, he has since managed to escape from police custody. Bull was being held for a pair of charges for aggravated assault. It is during his detention that he absconded while being returned to his holding cell after an I.D. parade. The gaffe has left a black eye on the department which has since launched an investigation into his escape.

“What happened is that the suspect was detained and he was formally charged for two counts of aggravated assault and in order to complete the murder investigation, an ID parade would have had to be conducted and in the process after the ID parade and whilst being escorted back to the cell block he made good his escape while being escorted back to the cell block.  The police have since put out a wanted poster for his arrest since Monday evening and there is an ongoing internal investigation which, at its conclusion, may lead to disciplinary charges being brought against the officer depending on the outcome of the investigation.”

“Yes.”

 

Thirty-five-year-old Jaime Pelayo was shot and killed while conversing with a pair of women outside of an establishment on the Belize/Corozal Road in the predawn hours of last Friday.  One of the women was grazed by a bullet during that incident.
