Several suspects detained for murder of Iguana Creek Resort owner

Larry Johnson

The brutal murder of sixty eight year old Dr. Larry Johnson in Ontario has left western communities reeling in shock. On Wednesday night, the house of the Iguana Creek Resort owner was invaded by six masked men who attacked the well known doctor and an employee, Julio Funes. The assailants later tied up the two men and put them in van that was doused with gasoline. Despite attempts by Funes to save him, Johnson succumbed to the brutal beating. On Thursday when we visited the scene, we were told that no motive was established although items were missing from the home. Today we confirmed with Belmopan police that four to five men from the villages of Black Man Eddy, United Ville and Ontario have been detained. No one has been arrested nor charged as investigations are still ongoing.

    This case will be watched by potential tourists, so we’d better get it right and punish the guilty to the maximum extent of the law.

  5. borntobehero says:

    these 5 person detained i believe were detained just for nothing. so i am sure there is a reason for being detained. So The western Police Comandant, Investigator (detective), Witnesses, Proscecutors Get Your @#$ togheter and follow up these reports, statements and all your system of Law and prove to all of us that you can do your JOB! otherwise the views from above will be the same of incompetent bunch, this is say to you Whose lot power has been given.

    To Minister of Police, COMPOL Jeffries, WDivision Comandant, And so On, PLEASE REMEMBER THIS: These crimes happening, are going to be repeat again if you do not do your job, or give the support to cityzens that have been proclaiming that can help clean the country.
    One Criminal at the Time.
    (once is being proven that This is guilty), but for many reason the Procescutors cant proceed due to contrary circumtances, Is a group out here that can carry on from there, our link is happening bit by bit. Lot more could be say but for now lets leave it to the law to take its course and give the chance to those in charge to deliver their duties. WE WILL BE WATCHING YOU>!!!

    According to law no one did it, no one. Even the murder of Josiah Thompson at the San Ignacio Belize bank, no one did that either. We have no laws, no one kills, they all go free !!!
    So why talk about police arrest , detain etc, bs !!!
    Today we hear about a robbery at the San Ignacio market, one taxi is detained right now, but you bet that NO ONE DID IT, they will SURELY SURELY walk FREE !!!

  7. crespin gatieza says:

    Not good that he was killed. Savages. Boycott Belize!

  8. Manuel Almendar says:

    Hopefully we fall into the hands of British instead of Guatemala and Mexico.
    How happy … the good old days of British Honduras !!!
    We had freedom, we could walk the streets , we could go to the disco anytime, no one dared to bother you or anyone.
    Now it is far different, the streets are ruled by gangs and the gang minister Barrow.
    If there is no one to contest elections I will vote for a dog or a donkey.

    Dr Larry Johnson was my friend . I met him from a mutual friend from Black Man Eddy. I stayed at his resort and invited him to stay at my home in San Pedro. He was a wonderful kind man. The people who did this to him should know that there is a reward out for your arrest . Only a coward would attack Dr. Larry Johnson. , You the attackers should not rest easy because we will find you and put you away for good.

    belize is like a circus right now….we have clowns running our country…. sad but i cant say it any better. i dont blame foreigners who decide not to come here due to the increase in crime rate high. and nothing is being done by the system…..for ur own safety stay away..
    i had faith in the pm but he open his mouth and prove his incompetence…..i think the best thing to do is step down and have honestly give it back to britain as someone had earlier said.

    our country is going down the drain…..our leaders are too corrupt and not looking at the real problems in our communities but rather their own interest (how they can make more money for their pockets)

    INCOMPETENCE GOV. DO THE RIGHT THING. STEP DOWN. AFTER ALL PM THERE CAN NEVER BE ANY YOUNG “DO DOGH” IF THEY DONT HAVE PARENTS (YOU ALL)

  12. citizen #2 says:

    I agree with the comments above, about bringing back the British, those were the best days Belize have seen and will ever see, if something is not done about the crime situation. It was the most peaceful place in the world. If you were proven guilty of murder, you were sentenced to hang and 21 days after, you were gone, never to kill again. This is the Belize we need again then citizens would come back to Belize and the country would prosper, the economy will pickup and people would just enjoy a real “JEWEL” as you now call this hell people are living in.

  13. radical says:

    oh, they already let those men detained go. think they are more afraid of the criminals than keeping any sort of peace in that country.
