DeShaies Offers Details of Relationship with Murder Victims

According to DeShaies, he has been fully cooperative with agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation who have been dispatched to Belize to probe into the murders.  He says that he never really knew Drew Devoursney, aside from having seen the American national when visiting his girlfriend at her house on Serenity Sands Road in Consejo Village, Corozal.

“Can you speak to us about your knowledge of, or your familiarity or acquaintance with Mr. DeVoursney?”

“I barely knew him.  He was upstairs with her most of the time.  I just met him.  He is fairly new in her life, about maybe four or five months, something like that.  But I met him in the palapa on occasions when I came in and I was obviously introduced to him.  I did know him but I didn’t know him as a person.  They were on different schedules.  My girlfriend has a stand and she goes in the morning.  I take her usually for six o’clock in the morning and Drew and Francesca were night people.  They were out at night and they come home late, so our paths didn’t cross as much in the last few months as they used to.”

“Now you’ve secured legal counsel for this particular charge that you have been able to successfully meet bail.  Have you retained legal services going forward with regards to the previous suspicion that you are involved in this double murder?”


John DeShaies

“I don’t need to have any counsel because I’ve never done anything.  I’ve had full negotiations with the F.B.I.  I’ve gone over everything and they’ve gotten all my information.  They’ve taken my DNA, they’ve checked my vehicles and they checked my vehicles, they’ve checked the entire house.  There’s no reason why I would need counsel.”



“Sir, it must be rather frustrating that you are being kept in the custody of the Belize police from since you were picked up for the burglary charge.  The arraignment, they didn’t take you to the prison but they kept you in Corozal and now the suggestion is that they’re going to re-arrest you.  Can you share your opinion of that particular aspect of being detained at this extended period of time?”


John DeShaies

“Bradley spoke with the chief or head of police in Corozal and if they told him that I was cleared of all wrongdoing, that there’s absolutely no correlation between me and Francesca.  So if you’re telling me that somehow someone told you something different, I don’t understand it.”
