3 Charged for Paul Jex Murder

Nelson Paguada

For security reasons, the three men accused of killing Jamaal Paul Jex last Tuesday on Ambergris Caye were brought to Belize City for arraignment. Nineteen-year-old Nelson Paguada and a fifteen-year-old minor, both fishermen of San Mateo, and forty-five-year-old Timothy Carcamo, a fisherman of San Juan area, were arraigned for the sensational murder of Jex, who with another individual were waylaid by gunmen who opened fire on them on Crocodile Street in the San Pedrito area.

The perpetrators then reportedly fled on a boat. Despite eyewitness accounts linking all three men to the scene, Nelson Paguada and Timothy Carcamo both denied involvement to Chief Magistrate Sharon Frazer. We hear from police about the capture of the trio.
