Aunt of Christopher Galvez says she has been threatened again

Christopher Galvez’s father, Martin, and his aunt, Yolanda Schakron were clearly not happy with the findings by the investigative team.  They both held a press conference this afternoon in which they read a statement given to them by a person who allegedly witnessed the murder. Schakron said that her life was threatened three days ago.

“He stated that the corporal was present. He stated Aguilar was present and he stated that two of Christopher’s friends were present. After he gave the statement, this witness gave the police another statement about other things that have happened in Belize; even about the disappearance of a certain individual. I do not understand why none of these leads have been taken seriously.  I had gone there to meet Chris because he said he didn’t feel good about the situation. I was waiting on Chris to get through talking to these people when I noticed he got up, he put his hands above his head holding them together as if he was stretching. That was something Chris always did. I then saw Andre Aguilar get up and walk towards where Chris Galvez was as if he was going to urinate. Suddenly he held Chris Galvez around his neck with his right hand. Chris then punched him in his mouth.

Andre Aguilar then pushed Chris Galvez towards where the corporal of police was. He, the policeman, was now standing up, pulled a gun and fired a shot at Chris. Chris was very near to him, just about arms length away from him. After the gunshot went off, Chris told me run, I got shot and I ran. I saw Chris running towards Andre Aguilar’s black SUV and I heard the car door slam. While running I heard two shots more being fired. I did not see him fire the other two shots but I believe it was him and I continued to run. I left my bicycle and lost my slippers. He said after the incident he went into hiding because he was afraid for his life.  We have become very scared. About three days ago I received a threat that they would cut off my head if I don’t shut up.”

    with all thisreports of life threats and the police don’t do any investigation shows clearly how imature the police deparment are at this point. and the at list tapp the ladies line to find who makes the threats? can the company line at least track the location of the caller? damn we’re far behind technology.

    Did the Del Cid investigation speak with the witness to which the victim’s aunt is referring? Would the statement from this witness not be the smoking gun on which the police could proceed with criminal charge against the alleged killer? In normal circumstances, this kind of statement, from an eye witness, would be the crown jewel of any criminal investigation. I have seen the police pressing charges on far more flimsy evidence. Why the difference in this investigation.

    from what I read, this young man Andre Aguilar sound like the one resposible for the murder of Galvez, and to the aunt I just wan to tell you that there are times you have to leave the judgement to God, you will not get justice here, and when someone call you to threaten you they are afraid believe me, they are so afraid of you, cause if they would have BALLS they would come to you face to face.
    The word of God says when you do wickidness, God send a bad spirit to torment you, and that is what is happening to the murderers, Believe me they cannot sleep well at night, they are so afraid and this is why they behave that way, by calling and threatening,don’t worry the truth will soon come out, trust in God!!!!
