Prime Suspect in Marlon Bonner’s Murder is Executed on Vernon Street

Elroy Perdomo Jr.

Today, there was further violence in the south side of Belize City. Elroy Perdomo Junior was executed on Vernon Street as he attended a funeral. Perdomo Junior was held for forty-eight hours as the prime suspect in the murder of Marlon Bonner on Sunday at the basketball court on Faber’s Road. He was released from police custody at eleven this morning and four hours later, he was shot sixteen times by a gunman from inside a white vehicle. The police say street justice was swift after witnesses refused to come forward and provide statements in the murder of Bonner.


ACP Chester Williams, Regional Commander, Eastern Division South

“Upon arrival at the location, police were told that the victim had been taken to the K.H.M.H. for treatment. Police later made checks at the K.H.M.H. and while doing so, they were informed that the victim had succumbed to his injuries. The victim has been identified as one Elroy Perdomo; he is from the south side area of Belize City. Our investigation continues.”



“Sir we understand that this person was detained up until this morning; in fact, he is the suspect that you had been making Facebook pleas about to ask someone to come forward and identify this person. Would you detail his time in custody with the police?”


ACP Chester Williams

“I must say it is a sad state of affairs. And yes, Mister Perdomo was in custody in respect to Mister Bonner, which took place on Sunday. And as I had said on my Facebook page that there were several persons out there who said that they saw him doing the shooting. According to those persons who were out there, he had nothing on his face so everyone was sure that it was him. And while many of the witnesses spoke to us and gave us full details as to what took place, none of them were willing to give us a statement. And because of that, we had to release him at eleven this morning. Well I guess the street justice was swift and these are the things that we always try not to hope for. I wish we could have gotten a statement against him and send him to prison; he would still be alive today, but that did not occur and this is the result of it.”

“Sir do you know what he was doing on Vernon Street at the time when he was attacked?”


ACP Chester Williams

“Well from our investigation that we have obtained that he was behind a funeral or something of that sort when a vehicle came by and from the vehicle, he was shot and he received sixteen gunshot wounds. So he was practically riddled with bullets.”
