Accused Killer in Custody for Kyne Gentle Murder

Hugh Middleton

Twenty-eight-year-old Kyne Gentle was shot and killed in San Ignacio on May twenty-first, as he stood outside of Blue Angels Nightclub.  It is not known why the tri-athlete was marked for death, but his killer executed the hit ruthlessly, standing over him and firing a round into his head to finish the job.  That individual has been identified as Hugh Middleton, a resident of Roaring Creek Village.  Middleton has been taken into police custody pending an arraignment for Gentle’s murder.  According to ACP Joseph Myvett, a police investigation into the homicide is ongoing.

“The only other matter would be the arrest of Hugh Middleton for the crime of murder, in regards to the shooting death of Kyne Gentle which occurred some few weeks ago on Hudson Street in San Ignacio Town…  He is from Roaring Creek Village.”

“Do you know if the gentlemen had a dispute, what may have led to to [his death]?  It was quite extraordinary, I was told that a sawed-off shotgun was used and…”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“We are looking at several angles but there is no established motive as yet, as far as our investigation is showing.”
