Accused murderer says cops beat him prior to confession

Dwayne Albert Davis Sr.

On Wednesday, police arrested thirty-one year old Dwayne Albert Davis for the murder of Guatemalan Dr. Ivan Gomez Garcia. At the time of the arrest, Davis was a maintenance worker of Tuff enough Tours on San Pedro. While he reportedly handed himself in, Davis appeared frightened and was very emotional in court when he was formally arraigned this morning. He told Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer that nothing like this had ever happened to him before and that he didn’t know what to say.Davis also alleged that he only spoke to police because they beat him badly. He claimed that the only officer that was not abusive to him, was the person who recorded the statement whom he knew from playing basketball. No plea was taken on the murder charge and Davis was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until July twenty-third. Garcia was found dead inside his house in Belama on Monday; he had been strangled to death. Apart from today’s charge,Davis is not a known troublemaker. His only previous encounter with the law was in May, 2010 when he was arrested with a group of men after police found weed in a yard where he was hanging out.

    My prayers are with you Mr. Davis…..I cannot explain why this happened. And I do not believe the doctor deserved to be killed. But I commend you on surrendering yourself. Most killers run away or lie and claim their innocense. You took responsibilty and owned up to the horrible crime you committed. That has to count for something. Giving up yourself speaks volume. My condolences are with the family and friends of the doctor and you Mr. Davis, are in my prayers.

    He has never had any real problems with the law before, yet this idiot made the ultimate choice to viciously murdered and stole from his friend.

    He is a cold and evil and he deserved the beatings the police gave him, and even worst than that.

    Forget hanging, take the animal out into the jungle and shoot him.

    If we aren’t truly shown what is inhumane, we might just tolerate it.
