Bababoo killed during hit & run accident

Robert Harrison Castro aka "Bababoo"

A well-known man of the streets of Belize City was killed in a hit and run accident near the Esso Gas station on the Northern Highway at about seven-thirty on Monday night.  Robert Harrison Castro better known as Bababoo is a regular fixture in front of grocery stores and gas stations. Although he suffered from dwarfism, Bababoo’s large red cap made him much taller. His sister told News Five that they want justice for their loved one.

“My son said that he wanted to go to his aunt house and on his way coming back from dropping his nephew, his bicycle chain slipped. So, he got off his bike and tried to fix the chain and upon trying to fix his bicycle chain, a vehicle just came from nowhere under speed and hit him and run. It’s a hit and run. We don’t know who could do a horrible thing like that and not even stop and come back and check and see weh happen—if he get hurt. I mean the cameras at the gas station, they must see something. People mi deh round; somebody must see something.

So if anybody know anything about it, unu please come out and say weh unu see or weh unu know.  We call him bam and he was a very nice person—he noh harm nobody, everybody know ahn as ih funny, always di give jokes. He no disturb nobody, ih noh harass nobody. Unu always wah see ahn pan ih lee bicycle maybe by Li Chee or by all di lee gas station cause that dah weh he does like do.

    I have seen this guy so many times on the street and everyone complains how much of a thief he is. He attempted to break into my brother’s vehicle once and did something sexually vulgar in front of me once. He also tried to steal something out of my vehicle once and I caught him just in time. WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. GOD IS GREAT! He might be someone’s son but name one person who isn’t!!! Being human does not mean he wasn’t a thief. Ask any of the guys who work at the esso freetown station and they will tell you the same about him

    I have seen this guy so many times on the street and everyone complains how much of a thief he is. He attempted to break into my brother’s vehicle once and did something sexually vulgar in front of me also. He tried to steal something out of my vehicle right outside of my office in front of the entrance which is a GLASS door once and I caught him just in time. This guy has no shame at all! WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. GOD IS GREAT! He might be someone’s son but name one person who isn’t!!! Being human does not mean he wasn’t a thief.
