Close friend arrested for strangulation of K.H.M.H. doctor

Dwayne Davis Sr.

There is another arrest in a high profile murder. As we reported on Tuesday night, police have a suspect in the murder of Dr. Ivan Garcia. Dwayne Davis Senior of Freetown Road has been charged for Garcia’s murder. Garcia, a Guatemalan doctor at the Accident and Emergency Unit of the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital for the past ten years was found dead at his Belama Phase Two house on Monday morning by his domestic helper. There were no signs of forced at his house leading investigators to believe that the doctor was well acquainted with his killer. Garcia was likely murdered on Sunday night; his Geo Prism car was recovered by the police on Monday.  A post mortem concludes that the doctor died of asphyxia caused by fracture of the right Tyriod Cartillage due to manual strangulation. The tests also confirmed that another contributing factor to his death was injuries to his head. Garcia’s family resides in Guatemala where his body is being transported for burial. But on Tuesday, his colleagues staged a protest at the K.H.M.H. against crime and violence and to honor one of their own.  Shaken by the murder, the doctors made the point that the community could no longer remain quiet in the face of the crime spree.

    Was Dwayne Davis a K.H.M.H. doctor,
    If not then why was this doctor spending so much time with this monster in his home?

    Yeah, it only took a Prism for him to take his so-call best friend life.

    No prison time for this idiot, shoot him and save tax payers some money.

    What a waste of life, what could be so bad to take another man’s life in such a vicious way. In Belize it is so hard to know who you can trust. Please let us go back to how it was in the past, neighbors helping each other in peace. The days when you can sit on the steps and enjoy the time.

    the man dead but this sound like a crime of passion. The dude came and confess I dont’ think the motive was robbery at all. Maybe UNIBAM was there to support one of their own. Don’t take this the wrong way, not speaking ill of the dead here…

    Mr. Davis surrendered. This shows at least he has a conscience….definetly not a good thing he did, and I do not think the doctor did not deserve to be killed. But there has to be more to the story than what the news are reporting ….

    What is going on? With these gay affairs. Every single murder of “this” kind found dead on bathtobe found dead in bathroom hit on the head and almost naked. I wont say names because they are some famous ones that people will give their lives for. Just go to the archives and you will see what iam talking about.

    Guys, there’s other ways of gaining money, you don’t have to put yourselves in these kind of situations and be afraid of being exposed. I do understand times are hard; but don”t sell yourselves cheap.


    IF…”IF” he was gay does not give anyone the right to take away his life. He was a great help to our country.
    And he was not flirting in the public to cause any or to be misleading to our kids.
    He deserved to live, who knows, later he would even marry a queen and make a family according to the will of God.

    Uncle Benji, you read some freaky stuff!

    If he’s convicted of murder, hang him. No mercy, no exceptions.

  12. Retired CEO says:

    Consequently, we are wittnessing a backlash of all the homophobia and gay bashing perpetrated by GOB, the Christian Church and many in our society in the name of self righteousness and pseudo religiosity. Hypocrisy, hate and discrimination is not the answer to the many issues we are faced with in the jewel. Pay back is a beach. Wake up Belize, Many people suffer due to lack of knowledge.

  13. Storm says:

    Retired CEO, there is nothing hypocritical about being against homosexuality on moral grounds. Most people here are Christians, and the Bible is pretty clear on the point. I am raising my own son according to its laws, as best I can.

    That point made, the Bible also says, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone,” “Judge not, lest ye be judged,” and “Vengeance is Mine.”

    I think homosexual behaviour is sinful, but I think we must leave to God the consequences for that private, adult, and consensual immorality. But murdering or molesting a child is a different thing, and it is our job to punish it here and now.

    Murder is murder is murder. No exceptions. Gay or straight, black or white, young or old. If u are found guilty then u must pay the price! Only wish the laws were changed so as not to even have repeat offenders.
