Hopkins Double Murder, a Burglary Gone Bad

As we reported on Thursday, police believe that they have cracked the case of the double murder of tour guide operator Quintin Espinosa and U.S. national Roland Burley, which occurred last Friday in Hopkins Village. Three men are in custody and a number of items stolen from the property have been recovered, and investigators are in the process of receiving key evidence to be able to lay charges against the killers. In a press conference held today, Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett told the media that the investigation is showing that the double murder was a burglary gone bad.

“At this point in time we have three persons in our custody. A number of items were recovered during the course of the investigation and at this point, certain things need to be done in relation to the investigation which when they are done and the results prove what we want them to be prove, then several persons are expected to be charged for murder.”
