No arrests yet for Gravel Lane murder

Luis Cardenas

As for the murder of twenty-two year old Luis Cardenas, who was killed in Orange Walk on Sunday morning, police have yet to levy any charges. Several persons of interests have been questioned in connection with the shooting, but no arrests have been. Cardenas was on a friend’s verandah on Gravel Lane when at around three-forty-five in the morning, a lone gunman sprayed the house with bullets. In the hail of gunfire, a single bullet hit Cardenas on the head and he died on the spot. Thirty-six year old Deon Hyde was also walking by when the man opened fire and he was shot at least four times. He ran across the street after being shot and was assisted by a neighbor. Hyde remains hospitalized at the Northern Regional Hospital. While police have not yet confirmed who was the intended target, we are told that Cardenas had indicated that he was in trouble and Hyde was only known in the area as someone who did yard maintenance for several persons.

    Algenia, sadly, you’re right — Belize IS more dangerous than Iraq and Afghanistan both!

    If you want your children to be safer, send them out of the Jewel, send them to war.

    How pathetic is that?

    Our murder rate is DOUBLE Mexico’s, and they have cartels beheading people!

    Who needs Mexican cartels, when we have our own known gangsters [on the government payroll, no less!], incompetent leaders, and a “gang truce?”
