Chris Lowe pleads guilty to wounding Bert Vasquez

Twenty-eight year old Bert Vasquez was bludgeoned to the head last Thursday by Christopher Lowe, the father of thirteen year old Jasmine Lowe from Santa Elena. Jasmine is the young girl who Vasquez is accused of murdering; her body was found near a farm on the Cristo Rey Road on June eleventh. Vasquez was attacked when he was being escorted to the Magistrate’s Court in that municipality. News Five’s camera caught the incident as Lowe swung an umbrella at Vasquez, hitting him on the right side of the head. Reports are that Vasquez received at least six stitches for the wound. Lowe was immediately arrested despite resistance from residents and bystanders. He was charged with wounding. Today he was formally arraigned before the courts where he pleaded guilty and was fined five hundred dollars to be paid forthwith. Lowe made the payment and now awaits the trial against Vasquez, which is set to start on August fourteenth.

    A just judge would have dismissed the charge or suspended any sentence. Six stitches compared to murdering his daughter?

    When it comes to Vasquez, I say, OFF WITH HIS HEAD.

    $500.00? For that little cut? How much the other victims from this @&&#%*/ get? Mr Lowe I sugest you sue this …….. good. We know you will not get Jasmin back.but at least you will hurt mami Vasquez pocket. Mr Ellis Arnold is very good you should look into it. Sue whoever comes in between you and this good for nothing. I bet that $500 hundred that you paid is the best $500 that you have ever spend.

    For the crime vasquez commit against children, a hit on the head is minor

    Too little. Too little. Our justice system is twisted. Lowe’s get a slap on the wrist for assaulting another human being. What sort of half @$$ punsihment is $500?

    Vasquez may be many things, but until he is found guilty, he is entitled to the same treatment you and I would expect as Belizeans.

    If I was ruler of the Belizean kingdom…….. Lowe and Vasquez would be locked in the same cell. Lowe could then take out his fury on Vasquez, and Vasquez could satisfy his rape urges on Lowe. Gawd, that sounds like a beautiful love story. Uncle Benji, you have a God’s mind.

    mr benji u r an idiot when it happend to u then u can take it for a joke. God is not sleeping though. go ahead and think life is a joke and see where u will end up…….really why dont u go and be berty nite nurse in his cell u seems to be very jealous……..i knw u will like it……..people like u we dont need here in belize…….

    Despite the fact that Vasquez have not yet been convicted for the brutal murder of Jasmine i totally understand the frustration of Mr. Lowe after losing his daughter. It is only human nature to react in that way; we would all react similarly if we lose a love one and we are face to face with the person alleged of brutally murdering him or her. Some of us might even end up in jail for doing what we believe is right…

    What a slap in the face actually fined Chris Lowe for a that no good dog that killed his daughter, I know most people can totally understand what this man & his family is going thru murder of his innocent daughter .

    Regarding the comments of this Uncle Benji he is either a sick person or has no regards to a human being suffering he needs to keep his sick comments to himself.

    What justice is there in Belize for the victims while the murders are being protected.

  10. June says:

    I understand Mr. Lowe’s pain but the police were right to arrest him since two wrongs shouldn’t make a right and if Vasquez is guilty he should receive a really harsh punishment for the crimes he committed against that poor little girl …Let’s hope that justice will be served.

  11. Rds says:

    Yeah this “UNCLE BENJI” is just as screwed up and Bert Vasquez, we should investigate that person as well. what do u mean innocent, for God’s sake he was found with a minor in his car in a compromising position, it should have been you daughter or sister. You are a sick ………

  12. now i see says:

    @Jewel I think uncle benji is Bert Vasquez. Remember he has a smart phone and internet so he is really enjoying all our comments. He should remember he has a daugther and in this world kids pay for the parents wrong doing. Yes, here is heaven and here is hell.and you dont go until you pay.

  13. no one says:

    ref uncle benji , who are you, could be you are Bert Vasquez father or some like Vasquez. Are you a father.

  14. Janet says:

    Uncle is a dumb@&&. Don’t need him to comment in this forum. I understand Mr. Lowe’s anger because Bert Vasquez has this silly @&& smile on his face Mr. Lowe was only trying to remove it.

  15. Al says:

    For a charge of $500.00, Mr Lowe needs more time with Vasquez, he did not get the pound of flesh he paid for. So called justice was served on Mr Lowe, I pray that the proper justice is passed on Vasquez.

    Benji, I hope you never have to grieve as this man had to. You are not very smart anyway, in a post you made a few days ago you said you have lived five score and five I belive, jackass that would make you 105 years old. Incase you don,t know a score is 20.
    So I excuse your stupidity, and ignorance, you just don’t know any better.

  16. Joe says:

    I would do what Mr. Lowe did. OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!!

    As a matter of fact if this ANIMAL is brought to San Ignacio again – I am willing to pay not one but two $500.00 fine.

  17. PM says:

    Police investigate uncle benji, he seems dangerous
