Murder of businessman in Ladyville

Ladyville Police are tonight continuing their investigation into the murder of thirty-two year old businessman Peixan Tan, who was gunned down inside E-Buy Supermarket on Crab Catcher Street on Thursday evening.  According to a fellow grocer, two dark complexioned men entered the premises shortly after five o’clock and demanded money.  During the armed robbery, Tan was shot once to the left side of the head.  It is unclear whether his assailants made off with the days proceeds from the cash register.  News Five understands that the incident was captured on surveillance camera inside the store. That footage has since been turned over to Ladyville Police who have detained one person in connection with the incident.  A single nine millimeter expended shell was also recovered from the scene of the shooting.

    If the police need help to identify the other killer, let’s see the surveillance video. The killer knows who he is, let the rest of us see him and help the police capture him, dead or alive.

    Make sure both the Police & the victim’s family have copies of the surveillance recording just should in case the original is ‘lost’ or misplaced. The DPP could use that piece of evidence to convict those that are responsible for this crime without any resistance from the defense. Moreover, the Chinese community should close their business establishments permanently until the government reintroduces back the capital punishment.

    I don’t know what it will take for the people in power in Bze to realize that something drastic needs to be done to curb the senseless killings that has become far too common in the country. A MESSAGE needs to be sent to the perpetrators, especially in a case like this where the authorities actually have the criminals who committed the crime on video. People needs to know that there is a severe penalty to be paid for committing violent crimes; this is the only way the cycle of violence is going to be broken in the jewel. ( FOOD FOR THOUGHT), responsible parents punish their kids when they don’t follow the rules or commit a crime, hoping that these kids would learn from the inconvenice or pain that they would have to endure, and would dare not try it again. As the leaders of the country, these folks in power needs to punish the criminals in a way that they would dare not become repeat offenders. If the GOB cannot afford to keep these folks that are found guilty of their crimes behind bars for life, then my suggestion is that that they bring back coporal punishment ……end of story. Prior to 1999 I never thought that Bze could become this violent, oh how time fas changed.

    Stop the violence!
    It is sad to see someone being murdered for no apparent reason, imagine the pain his family must be going through right now, I am speaking for people of all ethnicity, I am an ordinary 15 year of old chinese boy living in Belmopan. It hurts so much to hear these silly crimes on a poor man who has done nothing and did nothing to deserve to die.

    i really don’t know what the grovernment is doing, but surely they r not doing their job right, the joke is y pm setting a meeting with them to TELL them stop this, ok maybe his asking them in a nice way for that moment, and make them feel proud of what they r doing, but now with all this random shooting and robery, and u see today on the news an 18 years old get shoted on the legs and the poor 11 years girl get shoted 4times while they were asleep and the gril still in icu, this is what we call TERRARISM, and if i were the head of police i will just do a general inspection, and capture all those ppl in gang or if they r gang related, cuz u know ones u r into that, they never do anything good, so one way or the other and for the grovernment, TERRARIST should be EXICUTED!!!!
