Former fugitive dies in prison

Story Picture
For several months he was one of Belize’s most wanted fugitives but unlike his more famous colleague, Wensworth Mangar, who died in a hail of police bullets, Douglas Williams was quietly apprehended on June third. This morning, shortly past midnight, Williams was found dead in his maximum-security cell at Hattieville Prison. According to a police release Williams had long suffered from AIDS and while a postmortem had not yet been conducted, it is assumed by prison authorities that his death resulted from complications attributed to that disease.
