Charges for Accused Killer of Luis Monge

Richard Hyde

Richard Hyde is tonight in big trouble with the law after he was charged on Saturday and arraigned today for the murder of Luis Monge, who was killed on Friday morning in Belmopan during a stabbing outside of La Cabana Night Club. Monge and a friend had pursued Hyde who reportedly stole a chain from a patron outside the night club. A fight ensued during which Monge and Dennis Monterrosa were stabbed; they were rushed to the Western Regional Hospital where twenty-three-year-old Monge succumbed to his injuries. Today, Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett explained how Hyde was captured, stating that he was also allegedly involved in the recent robbery at the Income Tax Department in Belmopan for which over thirty thousand dollars was stolen.

“Sir can you tell us how he came into police detention?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“The police was in the area of Zultana Street early Friday morning sometime after three when the police observed a struggle between three persons. Upon the police approaching the area where the struggle was going on, two of the persons fell during the struggle and the third person attempted to run away but was caught up with by the police who he had a brief struggle with in an attempt to escape. However, he was shortly recaptured and brought into custody and has since Saturday been arrested and charged for the crime of murder. Other charges are forthcoming as soon as the other witness is able to give his statement, those charges will be preferred. And also Richard Hyde had some pending matters which today are going on in the Supreme Court in relation to a robbery that had occurred at the Income Tax Department in Belmopan.”


Also injured in the stabbing was Dennis Monterrosa, who was stabbed to the head during the scuffle to retrieve the stolen chain.

    Another Hyde? Just round them all up and throw their ass in jail- including the editor who lives in his past reminiscing of delusions of grandeur
