“There is no information that says that he was involved in some kind of negative things out there. He is not known for that and something like this when it happens in our community to a youthful person with great potential is gunned down, of course it is an outrage.  Of course it is something that gets to everybody because this is promising young person who loss his life out there. I would want to say a senseless loss of life because nothing can tell us at this point in time in our community as far as I know that he was involved in something negative. So of course these things reach out to us and a representative in Orange Walk East it comes home. To me it is a senseless act and something that I hope that the authorities can find the people who are responsible and bring them to justice.”

“Yes, well definitely. I think in every case like this and every murder investigation and every crime that occurs we are hopeful that the police will be able to solve it. I spoke to Mr. Chester Williams yesterday upon hearing the news early in the morning I spoke to him and asked him to ensure that we get more personnel on the ground to assist and support the local police officers here in Orange Walk. He has sent down personnel from major crimes in Belmopan to assist in this investigation.”
