3 Pook brothers charged for killing Errol “Lighta” Ferguson

Michael Pook

Errol Ferguson, the taxi driver known as “Lighta”, was violently stabbed to death at around seven a.m. on Thursday and it was suspected that the culprits were brothers. Today three siblings, twenty-two year old Michael and twenty year old Ryan Pook along with their seventeen year old brother were arraigned before Chief Margaret Gabb McKenzie. All three were jointly charged with Murder while Michael was additionally charged with Damage to Property for breaking the rear windshield of a 1992 Geo Prism vehicle which was driven by Ferguson, but belongs to Altreed Williams.

Ryan Pook

Michael and Ryan were remanded to the Belize Central Prison, and the minor was taken to Boot Camp. The murder occurred on Mahogany Street and is said to have been over a stolen car battery. But according to the parents of the Pook brothers, the fatality was unnecessary. The mother, Rosindo Pook, spoke to our court reporter today and she claims that Ferguson went to Michael’s home, armed with a gun on Wednesday night. The police were called and Ferguson allegedly disposed of the gun in nearby bushes, but Rosindo says the cops did not look for the weapon. On Thursday morning, Ferguson was stabbed multiple times on the stomach and neck. The three accused brothers are due back in court on May thirteenth.

    Put their silly @$$#$ in jail and throw away the key they are absolutely no good to society and probably killed before and will do it again if allowed to remain free. Remember, My Legacy B 4 my People.

    THREE POOK
    A LIFE THEY TOOK
    LEAVING BELIZE CITY SHOOK
    AT THEM WE NEED TO……….THROW THE BOOK.
    AND UPON FREEDOM THEY SHOULD NEVER LOOK
    SEND THEM TO THE PRISON FARM….ONE COULD BE A COOK.

    Miss Pook, you just gave the Prosecution what they needed to charge your sons for premeditated murder. You should have made your sons return the man’s battery & as a mother apologize for what your children did. If, we the adults are not able to diffuse the situation, if we cannot acknowledge when our children are wrong & do what we must to keep the peace, we cannot ask our children to do so. Ferguson is dead, he did not use the gun you claim he had to kill himself or harm your children, your spawns took his life & I can only hope that if you have other children, you will try to show them another way.

    HANG ALL CONVICTED MURDERERS. It is the only way to protect the Jewel.

    The seventeen year old should have also been sent to prison.He’s old enough to kill,then he should be old enough to do his time.

    And the mammy blame the dead man fi wah happen. This the big problem here. What others do is wrong but what my little angels do is sacred. Going after someone at 7am? This a planned attack. Hang the two eldest and put away the youth for 25 to life! Earl’s prison farm too good for these guys. Don’t let them work. No exercise. No phone calls. No socialize. If they no hang, lock em up in the dark with their bucket so they waste away. No what they do? They could be having some stew chicken and a coke or beer. Or out finding an honest job! Now see where they are. But, let’s see the courts find them guilty. No over yet. Where’s Dickie?
