Still No Suspect in the Murder of Felix Brothers

Brothers Maurice and Emory Felix were gunned down in cold blood last Wednesday at an establishment on Baymen Avenue in Belize City where they were playing a game of billiards.  The siblings were out on bail following a stint on remand for the murder of Mark Vernon and the attempted murder of Pamela Cumberbatch back in 2015.  In the wake of the double homicide, police have rounded up several persons for questioning, but are yet to lay charges on a suspect.  Earlier today, Assistant Superintendent Alejandro Cowo informed the media that notwithstanding the detention of several persons of interest, a suspect is yet to be named.  In speaking with Janet Felix last Thursday, she told News Five that since her sons were released on January twenty-first, they had been keeping a low profile.
