After String of Murders and Loss of Brother, Heartbroken Ernestine Carballo Asks Why?

Jerson Carballo

In the city, another killer remains on the loose, following the shooting death of twenty-seven-year-old Jerson Carballo on Monday night.  The deadly spray of bullets happened at the corners of Electric and Lawrence avenues, in the Saint Martin De Porres area, sometime around midnight, while the Radisson employee was heading home on bicycle.  It is strongly believed that Carballo, the younger brother of Belizean entertainer Ernestine Carballo, was followed by a lone gunman who opened fire on him from behind.  The tragic loss for the Carballo family is compounded by the fact that they have also lost several neighbors to gun violence.  An appeal is being made by Ernestine for information on the killer or killers to be shared with Belize City police.  An arrest is yet to be made, but family is preparing for his burial on Saturday. The grieving Soca artist opened up about the loss of her brother.

Ernestine Carballo, Sister of Deceased

“We have to do something because it is not getting any better. Who would have known it would have been my family now that this would have happened to. I lost almost all my neighbors from this entire McKay Boulevard, from over the canal. It’s brutal, it is heartless, it is reckless, it is senseless. Nobody not even deserve this, nobody not even do you nothing, whoever you are. What did we do? Nothing! So why did you do it? Why did you have to do what you had to do? That is all I have to say to that person who took my brother’s life.”

    Sorry for your lost sister! CHESTER knows damn well whats going on in that area. He just acting the fool, its an on going war within that martins area and he knows well! Your brother might not be no gang member, but he live in a gang ridden area. How much youths have lost their life’s within that area. If I can recall over the past 6 – 8 months. There have been 6 or more youth from that area that have lost their life due to gun violent’s. CHESTER know who are the gun man from those area, they just act the fool. When it hits their door only then they will want to do something about it. or start their state execution again!
