Wanted City Resident is Charged for the Murder of Kendis Flowers, but Escapes

Kevin Bodden

In mid-March of this year, reputed Mayflower Gang Leader Kendis Flowers was executed, shot once to the eye on Mahogany Street, not too far from where he lived on Mayflower Street. Six months later, on September ninth, police formally arrested and charged Kevin Bodden for his murder. The twenty-five-year-old was on the lam and on Sunday, he was spotted in Belize City by cops who were quick to detain him. But his detention was short-lived because after asking for a bathroom break, he escaped the long arms of the law. ASP Alejandro Cowo explains.
