Dangriga Man Stabbed to Death in San Ignacio Following Argument inside Nightclub

Earl Baizar

San Ignacio police are tonight looking for Gabino Garnett Jr., whom they believe can assist with their investigation into the overnight murder of twenty year old Earl Baizar.  Reports are that Baizar, a resident of Dangriga, was involved in an altercation inside Blue Angels Night Club shortly after midnight.  It is believed that the misunderstanding spilled over into the nearby street where he was stabbed in the left side of his chest and cut multiple times to the left hand, left under arm and right thigh.  Baizar was rushed to the San Ignacio Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.  News Five spoke by phone with Inspector Reymundo Reyes, who says that they are in the preliminary phase of the investigation.

“Sometime around 12:50 a.m., this morning, San Ignacio Police received information of a stabbing incident that happened somewhere in front of Blue Angels on Hudson Street, San Ignacio.  As a result of that they ended up proceeding to check out the information and when stopping in front of Atlantic Bank on Burns Avenue, they saw a male person lying down on the middle of the road bleeding.  So he was immediately transported to the San Ignacio Town Hospital for medical treatment but he died whilst undergoing treatment.”

“In terms of your preliminary investigation, have you guys ascertained whether this stabbing incident was the result of a misunderstanding or was this a random attack?”

“Information is that prior to the stabbing I think there was an altercation upstairs inside Blue Angels.  After the persons were asked to step out of the establishment that is when allegedly the stabbing happened.”

“Any suspects?”

“We do have a suspect but we are presently looking for him.”

“Now it would seem as if though that particular establishment has been the venue for a number of misunderstandings that end up in either physical altercations thereafter or a disturbing of the peace.  Have you guys taken any measure to look into this particular issue?”

 

Via Phone: Inspector Reymundo Reyes

“Well that is something that we have to sit down and address with the relevant authorities and see what we could do.”

 

Baizar’s body remains at the San Ignacio Morgue where it awaits a post mortem examination.
