Still No Arrests Made in Boom Double Murder

The murders of twenty-seven-year-old Dennis Brown and his coworker in Burrell Boom on Thursday afternoon has stunned the entire community.  Brown, an employee of Matilda’s Mini Mart, was gunned down along with twenty-one-year-old Kendra Miguel inside the store.  While a motive for the deadly shooting is being investigated, police are looking at the possibility that the hit on Brown was reprisal for a murder that claimed the life of another villager two years ago.  It’s a nexus that is yet to be established, along with the identity of a single shooter who rode up on a motorcycle and fired as many as fifteen shots inside the establishment.  Tonight, police are no closer to making an arrest, despite an ongoing investigation.  At the scene of the incident yesterday, News Five spoke with Superintendent Alejandro Cowo.

“What we received is that the suspect probably escaped on a motorcycle and there was no actual engagement between police and the suspect.”



“Okay, you all simply pursued, but do you believe the suspect is from Belize City or Burrell Boom?”


Alejandro Cowo

“Well we believe the person is from the immediate area.”



“This place has five security cameras, at least, that we’ve been able to see. Is there any footage on that that’s useful, have you all reviewed anything?”


Alejandro Cowo

“Well, if you had noticed we were dealing with the scene. Yes, we have seen the cameras that are inside of the building. Hopefully the cameras are functioning well and let us see how it can assist us in this investigation.”
