16-Year-Old Boy is Murdered on Election Day in the West

In the mix of counting on Wednesday night, police responded to a murder on the Bullet Tree Road in the Cayo District. A sixteen-year-old minor had been murdered and his body discovered on the pavement. Around eight p.m., Special Constable Jaime Pinelo was travelling from Bullet Tree Falls Village to San Ignacio Town when he came up on the body of a male person, later identified as Gregory Lewis, a teenager from San Ignacio.  The body was about two hundred yards from the exit to the San Ignacio Community Hospital and we are told that expended shells were recovered from the scene.  The crime scene was processed and the body of Lewis taken to the hospital where it was pronounced dead on arrival.
