Shane Bennett Charged with Attempted Murder

Shane Bennett

Investigators believe that Shane Bennett is the man who attempted to murder thirty-seven-year-old Anthony Parks on the morning of January twenty-second. Parks, who remains in a critical but stable condition, was shot multiple times while in Independence, Stann Creek.  He was with his common-law wife, sitting on his verandah when he heard someone call out his name. When he checked, Parks came under fire.  Bennett is facing a slew of charges.


ACP Joseph Myvett, Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch

“Police have since detained and arrested and charged Shane Bennett for the crimes of attempted murder, use of deadly means of harm, dangerous harms as well as the crime of aggravated assault committed on this common law wife.”

“What is the status of Mr. Park?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“He is in a critical but stable condition.”


Hipolito Novelo

“Sir do investigators have a solid case against the accused?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“I am not going on the status of the case. I believe the interviews given by the common law on the media is in itself a sufficient story to tell you that being reduced into evidence.”
