Two persons charged in connection with recent murders

Nelson Henry

Also in court, two persons were charged in connection with two recent murders. Twenty-nine year old tour guide, Guillian Hernandez was arraigned late Wednesday evening for the murder of Orlando Rodriguez, who met a horrific death on Sunday in Franks Eddy Village. Hernandez, who is from St. Matthews Village, appeared before Belmopan Magistrate, Adolph Lucas.  He was ordered to return to court on August ninth and before he was sent off to prison, Hernandez’ relatives asked that he be placed in protective custody because he has been receiving death threats. Magistrate Lucas granted that request. Rodriguez, a father of two also from St. Matthews Village, was with three men, including Hernandez, purchasing food in neighboring Franks Eddy Village. The men reportedly got into an argument, which escalated when they started hurling bottles at each other. During the brawl, Rodriguez was beaten several times on the head with a cement block and died on the way to the hospital.

And this morning, twenty-three year old Nelson Henry, aka “Mound” appeared this morning before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer to be charged for the murder of twenty-three year old Edward Emmanuel Lord Jr.  Lord was shot seven times on June thirtieth and it is believed that a high powered weapon was used. Henry is now on remand at the Belize Central Prison and he is to return to court on August fifteenth. Lord was said to be a marked man after he was accused and acquitted of the murder of George “Junie Balls” McKenzie.

    these youths faces are plastered on news over the internet without proper investigation and their already tarnished reputation is given yet another gold star. The police and media fill their resumes and in peoples eyes giving them street credits. On the negative side the media an police is putting them out there for target of retaliation from opposing gang. The police department is playing a game of pawn.. Instead of doing the necessary work to find the real murderers and cleaning up the streets not by force and violence but tactful clean investigations.
