Wagner’s Lane resident gunned down near his home

The old Capital’s murder spree started on Saturday morning when a resident of Wagner’s Lane was brutally riddled with a barrage of bullets. Forty-four year old Joe Hamilton was murdered near his home. According to reports, Hamilton’s body was found at the corner of South and Plues Streets.  He had sustained gunshot wounds to the left side of his head; right side of the head; left cheek; left side of the neck; right shoulder; right arm; and left ear. About five a.m. on Saturday Hamilton, was riding his bicycle on South Street after dropping off his wife on Amara Avenue, Belize City and reaching the corner with Plues Street, he was shot by an unknown person causing the fatal injuries. Hamilton’s body was transported to the K.H.M.H, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. So far, no witnesses have come forward in this investigation and his body now awaits a post mortem examination.  Last year on November eighth, Hamilton alleged that he was robbed by Clifton Flores, a man well known to the courts, while on Wagner’s Lane.

    What time of the day was he robbed? Where was Mr. Flores & the rest of his family or gang at the time this man was shot? Had Mr. Hamilton been threatened? I don’t believe for one second that this was a case of mistaken identity, someone knew his routine & executed him & will probably get away with cold blooded murder. Where are the cameras that were supposedly placed in certain parts of the city & who is monitoring them?

    Maybe Belizeans should protest and maybe Sing can get a line-up done or maybe even find the gun stashed in some alley. I think It would be a good idea to go to the courthouse with placardsor even start a riot. I think maybe dat da d only way we can get the answers to you’re asking BZNinCALI.
