PG Police Arraign Vendor for Murder of American National

Punta Gorda Police have made short work of the investigation into the murder of sixty-nine year old Thomas Paul Rockowski. The American National who lived alone was stabbed multiple times in his home on Saturday night. He passed away on Monday night and by Tuesday Police had three men in custody. On Friday one of those men, Roy Jones, a food vendor from Cattle Landing, Toledo was charged for the brutal crime which seems to have been the result of an altercation that turned violent and fatal.


Insp. Clement Cacho, Deputy Commander, PG Formation

“Punta Gorda Police formally arrested and charged Roy Jones, 48 years, date of birth 7th October, 1967, Belizean vendor of Cattle Landing Village for the crime of murder as it relates to Thomas Paul Rockowski. He was arraigned before the Court on today’s date.”



“Sir would you be able to give us an idea of the investigation which led to the arrest of this person?”


Insp. Clement Cacho

On the Phone: Insp. Clement Cacho

“I wouldn’t go into full details but our investigation has shown that the accused was at the deceased’s residence where a misunderstanding took place and he inflicted the wounds to the deceased.”



“Have the Police recovered the murder weapon?”


Insp. Clement Cacho

“Yes the alleged knife that was used has been recovered. It is being sent to the forensics lab for analysis, along with the blood sample that we retrieved from the scene.”


As we told you, three persons were detained for questioning, based on information given them by the badly injured Rockowski before he died. Still, Police say the evidence is pointing to Jones as the killer.
