“Police have arrested and charged two persons namely Ronaldo Marin, a nineteen-year-old and a fifteen-year-old minor for the murder of Eleazar Chan which occurred on April first in the San Pedro Area in Corozal.”


Andrea Polanco

“Sir, are you able to say what specifically led to the arrest of these two teenagers?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“Well, police investigation and the evidence gathered led to their detention and eventual arrest.”


Andrea Polanco

“Sir, these two boys – did they know Mr Eleazar?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“Yes. They did.”



“Can you confirm – deny whether the firearm you guys found led you to these two suspects?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“To some extent yes but I believe we were already on a certain track with the investigation so it is not solely based on that.”
