Who Killed Lyndon Murillo? Police Say They Are Close to an Indictment

Lyndon Murillo

While one person has been detained for the murder of seventeen year old Jasmine Petillo, police are yet to lay charges on a suspect in the murder of Lyndon Murillo, who was also killed in the Mahogany Heights community less than a month ago. On June ninth, the well-known watchman, and a father of five children, was executed soon after he exited a bus and was riding home. Under the cover of darkness, a gunman shot multiple times at Murillo who died on the spot. Today, we asked Assistant Commissioner of Police Edward Broaster for an update on that murder.

“There were reports that a vehicle was in the area and had sped off after the shooting had happened. I know that there were people going home at that same time when the shooting happened. Is there any update to that murder?”


ACP Edward Broaster, Regional Commander, Rural Eastern Division

“We have one suspect that we are looking at. Right now we are trying to gather evidence to lay charges on that suspect at this time.”

“So is he detained?”


ACP Edward Broaster

“No, no….he is not detained.”



“In terms of any motive…”


ACP Edward Broaster

“I would not want to get into the motive of that one at this time.”
