Minor charged With Abetment in Bayliss Murder…

Roy Bayliss

On August third, eighteen-year-old Roy Bayliss was eating tacos at the Fort Cairns Plaza in Orange Walk when a gunman walked up to him and shot him in the face. It happened just after five a.m. when Bayliss was sitting on a bench in front of the tacos shop with a friend, awaiting the arrival of more friends. Just an hour before Bayliss had been partying with friends at a popular nightclub to bring in his birthday, which was on Friday. The brazen nature of the cold-blooded murder carried out in a crowded venue, shocked the community. When News Five spoke to police shortly after, they informed us that they had as many as fifteen persons detained. And today, we got word that a minor, seventeen years old, was charged for abetment to murder. The minor was formally arraigned today and remanded into custody. He is to reappear in court on September fifteenth.
