“On Friday October 10th, 2014, sometime after ten, ten-thirty p.m. information was received of a person being stabbed in Unitedville.  As a result, San Ignacio Police visited the said village where on arrival they received certain information and they visited an open lot located behind M&H Shop which belongs to Mr. Samuel Mendoza.  But nothing incriminating was found there.  Information was that one Kevin Taylor had been transported to Belmopan with stab wounds to the left side of the chest and a cut wound to his back.  Later on Belmopan police informed San Ignacio that the person had succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment.  As a result, two persons were detained for questioning and on Monday the thirteenth, Brian Belle, twenty-five-years-old, and Tyrone Gongora Rushford, thirty-two-years-old of Black Man Eddy Village, were charged for the crime of murder for the murder of Mr. Kevin Andrew Taylor Jr.”
