Shelly Meighan Says Murder Maybe, But Her Son Certainly Did Not Commit Rape

Tyrone Meighan

The group was expected in court this morning so family and friends were awaiting their arrival. They did not appear until the afternoon and it was under heavy police guard. In the drama that ensued, Meighan who was handcuffed, hit reporter Roy Davis off the veranda and down the stairs of the Supreme Court Building. The six men and three women proceeded for arraignment inside the courtroom of the magistrate court before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith; they pleaded not guilty to the numerous charges. The police disallowed the media inside the courtroom and the Magistrate made it clear it was a police decision.   As it relates to the firearm charges, bail could not be granted so they were all remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison until January fourteenth, 2016. The trio of women were similarly denied bail and remanded into custody until January fourteenth, 2016.   In an interview, Shelly Meighan, Tyrone Meighan’s mother claims her son was at home during the time of the home invasion.

Shelly Meighan, Mother of Tyrone Meighan

“He has alibi. Thursday, GSU went there. They searched all of them in the house; Tyrone was there present. Tyrone left out about after eight, minute to nine and two police weh always stand up outside—they stay twenty-four [hours] and more—and they ask Tyrone to buy them two sodas and Tyrone buy them two sodas. I noh understand how they wah charge my son fi rape when this news say eight dark-skinned male mask man. Saturday dehn come deh with dogs say they come search. They search the whole yard; they ker my three sons plus two other young man that was in the yard. They ker dehn dah Ladyville. I call the lawyer and I ask ahn go check pan dehn. When he call me, he say they just got them for investigation. A couple minutes after when the lawyer left, dehn ker them dah Crooked Tree; dehn had them overnight dah Crooked Tree. Up to now, Ellis and Shaquille and Kendis Flowers and Raheem Myles are still at Crooked Tree station being held. They took back Tyrone yesterday morning back to Ladyville. I wanted to know why dehn took him back to Ladyville so I went to Ladyville station; they denied me seeing him. They said that they get orders that nobody can’t see Tyrone. I left a food and I went to Crooked Tree and same thing when I reached, they say nobody can’t see them; they called and said nobody can’t see Ellis them at the station and the police advised them to handcuff them in the cell block. I noh know why. I call the officer last night that is inside and I ask him, “Why dehn wah charge my son?” Somebody called me and tell me that dehn deh pan di way fi charge my son. Now so I call the officer and he wah tell me that he wah charge my son base pan what he hear. That’s hearsay. Tyrone has alibi witness that he was home. This is a serious offense…for rape. Tyrone is not like that. Eight dark-skinned persons with mask; how could you identify Tyrone Meighan? Tyrone Meighan, Shaquille Meighan, Ellis Meighan look di same so why dehn neva ker my son pan parade ID. They denied Tyrone the swiping weh dehn do all the rest of man. Dehn denied Tyrone hair…Tyrone ask them to take hair and fi swipe ahn just like how dehn swipe the rest. Dehn noh swipe Tyrone none at all; dehn noh take no hair sample. The officer told the media this morning that he did…he did not. He denied Tyrone. Tyrone ask the forensic man to please do him, the forensic man say dehn noh need fi do it because you di get released. Then yo charge my son for rape and the rest for conspiracy. Why dehn deny he? If he wah do the swiping and he wah dehn take ih hair sample dah because he know that he noh involved ina it. From Tyrone walk this murder, I know dehn mi wah try pick my son. But fi rape somebody? Invade somebody home? All dehn police know my son. If dehn mi charge my son fi murder, I never mi wah dehn out yah because I know Tyrone mentality, but fi rape somebody? Then deh dah serious offense; stain my son name.”


As we said, the group of men were busted as a bar in Ladyville when the cops searched their vehicle and found the stolen goods.

    So she could have lived with the murder charge but not rape? Like…. seriously!!!

  2. Belizean Pride says:

    fake cry this woman has, makes me angry, look at her son walking by chained and yet has the audacity of pushing a journalist or photographer while being led into the court. I would be that person i would file a complaint that same time. Mom your sons are scums and we want them out of this Jewel. That fake face you put on the tv makes us viewers wish you the worst of all. Knowingly how your sons behave means we don’t like them in our society.
    They repeated the seen to bring out the incident and even made hand gesture towards the camera man, come on where was the big fat police escort thinking when he just brought down his hand. next time they should hand cuff them both hands.

  3. Al says:

    Of course she can, because he already beat the murder rap.

  4. Sherlette Gentle says:

    What ????? She should be locked up for encouraging her son’s behavior and that stupid comment. Maybe if your kids weren’t criminals you wouldn’t be in this situation. So take five seats to the left.
