2 men charged for murders of Chinese women

There were four murders that occurred over the weekend. Two of the victims were women, who were shot at their grocery stores.  The Chinese Association has been vocal with a protest staged on Monday in front of the courthouse that marched across the swing bridge to the police station. Their fury and indignation at the senseless murders was also trumpeted by displaying caskets for the victims and imposing a shutdown of Chinese businesses. Across the country shops and predominantly restaurants were closed. This afternoon the cops charged two men for the murders of Yan Ying Chen and Fei Lan Wu.

Immediately following the murder on King Street, police detained a group of young men with a firearm we believed used in the orchestration of that crime. We have since arrested and charged Jordan Cayetano—first he was charged jointly with three others for possession of kept unlicensed firearm and ammunition. And now he is charged for the murder of the Chinese national that took place at number 78 King Street. He was arraigned today in front of magistrate’s court.”

Jose Sanchez

“Other than that national, there’s also from Faber’s Road, Fei Lan Wu—the thirty-six year old Chinese national who was also murdered over the weekend.”

Sgt. Fitzroy Yearwood

“Police investigation into the Wu murder that took place on Faber’s Road on Saturday; we have since arrested and charge Kareem Francis for murder and he was also arraigned today in front of magistrate’s court for the single charge of murder.”

Jose Sanchez

“Now when these two nationals were murdered, there was a protest that paraded past the police station. Did the Chinese Community receive a permit for that protest or should that have been allowed?”

Sgt. Fitzroy Yearwood

“Well Jose, they had no permit and as a matter of fact, for the most part, there procession was peaceful. I must applaud my police officers for handling a situation where we knew that emotions were really high. The Chinese national, not only the Chinese national, but I think Belizeans on a whole—any law abiding citizens—would be upset of the entire crime situation and they just found that that was their way to express themselves publicly. But as far as I know, their protest went without any major incident.”

    I hope we can speed up their trials & get this behind us. But as I look at their pictures, I believe I read yesterday that Cayetano is 18 or 19. Who or what extinguished the light in his eyes, this child’s eyes are dead, administering the death penalty, if he is found guilty will probably be a favor to him.

  2. dave says:

    Betta protect these two punks good caz dema dead ( not words of threat but a fact)

  3. Elgin Martinez says:

    Justice seems to be swift when you are a part of the High class Belizean Communities. Has anyone been convicted for little Eyanie Nunez’s murder?

  4. Justice says:

    They should be placed in a ring and stoned to death like in the olden days. hanging might be too tame as it is not painful enough. It sis not only the Chinese community problem, it is a Belizean problem and if they are set free any good Belizean should rid the earth of these scums! The law is protecting them whilst innocent people are dying. The look of them makes me sick!

  5. spanglish says:

    I SAY KILL THESE CS!!!! THEY DO NOT DESERVE TO LIVE!!!!
    i AM AT LOST OF WORDS BECAUSE THESE ARE YOUNG PEOPLE AND MY QUESTION IS.
    WHERE ARE THE PARENTS???? SMOKEY JOE WAS RIGHT IN MANY WAYS.
    I SAY ARREST THE PARENTS TOO, THEY KNOW SOMETHING.
    PLEASE DON’T TELL ME THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT THEIR SONS ARE DOING!!!
    BS!!!!

  6. BelTex says:

    Why can’t there be a campaign to identify these repeat offenders – sort of a Belizean most wanted except this would be Belizean Criminal Round-up. Expose these people so that the public is aware. A lot of these young men have had long rap sheets. The police know who these people are. Wouldn’t it be beneficial to the public to know if they see these people around they can more than likely expect some trouble? The community is already living in fear why not equip them with knowledge?

    This campaign could be as simple as putting up information (including distinguishing marks/characteristics, aliases) about these criminals on the Police website (or some other website). Put this information up there when these criminals are let loose because witnesses are afraid, the criminals were let out of jail, the case was thrown out for technicalities of they meet a criteria (such as being a repeat offender). Consideration should also be given to expose minors who commit violent crimes. If they have committed crimes for which they are accused and can be treated as adults they should be exposed as well.

    The goal is simply to educate the public and make them aware and not live in fear. Know how to equip themselves and avoid dangerous people.

    y should u hang them wen two innocent man dead in the same 24 hrs and no one care. What about them belize is just getting racist like next country cause if it was belizeans protesting it would not have gone so smooth uno da just sum a** h***

  8. maggie says:

    I like reading BZNinCALI’s comments as much as I like reading Channel 5′s news. More power to both of you.

    What happened to these two boys who look as if thou they should be in college building a future. Cayetano, has this innocent chillike face. This boy look like he could have been anything he wanted to be, too sad he chose the wrong path. So sad because in these gangs no one wins. These kids needs to be debriefed to change this gang mentality. If they form a gang to do something positive they would be so much further ahead.

  10. BDF soldier says:

    It is a fact that 90% of the murders are done in the belize city,yet it is here that the PUP & UDP mafia(AKA LAW FIRMS) invest and shower the CITY with everything ,good basket ball courts,millions spend on the culture center,and so on,and so on,its like those 2 criminal organizations AKA PUP& UDP shower the criminals of belize city for bad behaivor.in a country its the CAPITAL that has the best of everything,but in tiny belize its the riverse.

  11. Disgusted! says:

    Let the Chinese association deal with this one in anyway they see fit to get justice. And let anyone who gets in their way suffer the same fate!!! My thing is, wait for them outside the courthouse or ambush the prison bus that is transporting these animals to and from court and skin them alive!!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! (not suggesting that it be done but this is what i would’ve done if my family members were the victims!)

  12. islander says:

    The chinese community has a lot of money STOP BEING SO DAMNED CHEAP… there are dozens of former Kaibil special forces in Guatemala who refuse to join the mexican drug war cause they have pride but they have no problem killing gang members for a fee…

    Stop being cheap and hire six well equipped KAIBILES and let them loose on that gang neighborhood and youll see what happens

  13. JAHSEF JUDAH says:

  14. jer says:

    IT WAS CLEARLY TO BE SEEN THAT THE CHINESE WANT TO TAKE JUSTICE IN THEIR HANDS. I FEEL THAT THESE BOYS WOULD FARE OFF BETTER BEHIND BARS FOR LIFE THAN TO BE SET FREE. iF THEY ARE SET FREE THEY WILL NO MORE BE FREE. THATS HOW I FEEL, AFTER SEEING THE CHINESE MOVEMENT ON THE STREETS. SEE WE WOULDN’T WANT TO SEE CHINESE GET OUT OF HAND HERE WITH THEIR GANGSTERS AND MOBSTERS. THEY ARE TRYING TO MAKE A LIFE HERE, QUIET PEOPLE. PEOPLE OF BELIZE BE CAREFUL. THE CHINESE AGE GETTING POWERFUL. POWERFUL FINANCIALLY AND IN NUMBERS. BE CAREFUL. THE TABLES COULD TURN. ALL YOU GANGSTERS OUT THERE KILLING PEOPLE LIKE BIRD, PLEASE GO FIND A JOB AND STOP KILLING INNOCENT PEOPLE AS YOU HAVE A MIND TO. WHAT GOES AROUND MAY COME AROUND. SEE WE ARE HEADING TO THE END OF TIME. THIS MESS MAY JUST GET WORST. TURN TO GOD ALL OF YOU OUT THERE!!!!!

  15. Elgin Martinez says:

    I am just hoping that these two kids are not been used as scapegoats.Something is wrong with this picture and i can gurantee that there are more people involved in this crime.

  16. belizeanpride says:

    islander i do agre with you just cross the melchor border and you’llfind people asking for jobs even as hitman and they are willing to come over once you give them the chance and this is what is gonna happen if gob don’t start hanging people will start to hire guatemalans as hitman very soon just keep watching and you’ll see what happens and ata very cheap price.

  17. reatph says:

    It is sad and shameful to see my Belizean brothers and sisters killing both their family and friends for an old beef. Now they have started to target the foriengners also. What will the PM do about it; other than just shoot hot air. If that was a group of Kruffy protesting the murder of their love ones without without a permit the “$#!% WOULD HAVE HIT THE FAN.” The protesters would have been arrested and haul off to jail.
    But as Sgt. Fitzroy Yearwood said; “they had no permit and as a matter of fact, for the most part, there procession was peaceful. I must applaud my police officers for handling a situation where we knew that emotions were really high. The Chinese national, not only the Chinese national, but I think Belizeans on a whole—any law abiding citizens—would be upset of the entire crime situation and they just found that that was their way to express themselves publicly. But as far as I know, their protest went without any major incident.”
    If that ” procession” as Yearwood choose to call it was all BLACK BELIZEAN LAW ABIDING CITIZENS we know what the outcome would’ve been. Cut the crap Yearwood, one day it might be someone very close to you.

    PEACE

    (speaking to the queen in an english accent) Another cup of tea my dear, no worries about the mate’s in belize they are doing quite fine just a little scenario which will be over by the weekend..

  19. BZNinCALI says:

    Thank you Maggie.

  20. Sam says:

    The economy of Belize is already bad … and yet the gruesome killing of the Chinese women… Why the Chinese people?! The Chinese have been racist by some of the uncivilized ppl and have been judged constantly by those who think that they are better than any other race…. and still, they endure the prejudice… just to make a living… like each 1 of us.. Some Belizeans are too naive to think that foreigners like Hispanic, Indian and Chinese people are just here to MAKE ALL THE MONEY from their country.. This is so untrue.. They work as hard as anyone else … Killing people seem such an easy task for them.. HELLO!? its a life for god sake! CRUEL.

  21. ReVoLuTiOn says:

    I am really glad to see these two detained and most assuredly I know that justice will be served for these two Belizean-Chinese women. But I want us to realize what is going on here. Why hasn’t any one else gotten justice and so quickly. This is inequality of the highest order. Wake up Belize! Garifuna, Maya, Creol, Hispanics, Belizean Americans etc ( sorry if i missed anyone) must unite. THE IDIOTIC GOV’T WILL DO THEIR BEST FOR GAIN. No one else can put a stop to this than the people of Belize. WI HAFFU GET RIDDA D GOV’T. This blogging things isn’t solving the situation. Lets meet up and strategize HOW WI GO TEK BAK BELIZE!!!

  22. Concern citizen says:

    Belize was always like that, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. Missa dis and Missa dat. behind close doors racial discrimination. Remember the willie Lynch letters, it is practice all over the world against poor blacks. No matter what, all humans on earth came from the black race. Check out your real history.

  23. Earl Grey says:

    THEY COULD BE VERY VERY USEFUL ON…………….. THE PRISON FARM……..4 LIFE…………………..
    at no cost to TAX-PAYERS.

  24. AZN PRIDE says:
