17-Year-Old Charged with Manslaughter for Fidel Bardalez’s Death

Joseph Myvett

On Saturday morning, thirty-six-year-old Fidel Edilberto Bardalez was found brutally murdered in Alta Vista Village in the Stann Creek District.  He had been beaten and chopped to death by a seventeen-year-old minor with whom he was socializing before his demise.  Investigators say that the two got into a fight, which resulted in the minor producing a machete and Bardalez’s death.  This morning in Belmopan, ACP Joseph Myvett told the media that investigators are waiting for the D.P.P.’s directives.

In respect to the Belmopan shooting, one person namely Deshwan Gentle has been arrested and charged for wounding and use of deadly means of harm.
