What Happened to Altreed Williams?

Alejandro Cowo

There was a third death in the Old Capital. On Saturday afternoon, Eastern Division South Police were called out to Lawrence Avenue where the body of a Belize City man was discovered around midday. Altreed Williams’ body was reportedly retrieved from a shallow drain and there were no signs of physical injury on his body. But according to the family, Williams was beaten by a cop about three weeks ago and he was not allowed to file a complaint against the officer, when he went to the police station to make a report. Today, at a police press conference, Superintendent Alejandro Cowo told the media that the case is being treated as that of a sudden death.

“I know that on Saturday sometime after three in the evening, the police found a body on Lawrence Avenue that was identified as Altreed Williams. The body was viewed and there was no signs of injury or anything on the body. As far as we know there is no report or anybody has made any report to a police stating that he was beaten three weeks ago by any police; not even a complain to the PSB office nor to uniformed section.”

A postmortem will be conducted on the body of Williams later this week to determine the cause of death.
