Mark Tuyul Jr. is Laid to Rest

It was an emotional day today for the family of Mark Tuyul Junior, who was laid to rest this afternoon at the Eternal Garden Cemetery at mile thirteen on the George Price Highway. The three-year-old was sexually assaulted and murdered allegedly by his stepfather, Kenrick Longsworth, exactly one week ago at his house in an area referred to as Jungle on north side Belize City. His two siblings were also injured in the horrific ordeal, but survived. Longsworth was arraigned and remanded to prison earlier this week. The funeral service was held at the Mount Zion Seventh Day Adventist Church in Belize City where relatives and friends gathered to bid their farewell to the toddler, including his mother, Zema Castillo. Joined by her co-workers, officers attached to the Belize Department of Transport assisted with placing the casket into the hearse before the body of Tuyul Junior was carted off to its final place of rest.
