Howell Gillette

Belmopan police continue their search for one of two men believed to be involved in a stabbing on Friday morning in the village of Cotton Tree. Twenty-nine year old Kurt Hyde, a Belizean construction worker of Cotton Tree Village, was stabbed six times to the back, face and arm allegedly by Orlando and Eugene Castillo as he waited at a bus stop in the village. Police have since detained and charged one of the Castillo siblings with grievous harm and are looking for the other. Superintendent Howell Gillette, the Officer Commanding the Belmopan Police Formation, says that investigators are narrowing in on the second suspect, who is believed to be hiding out within the village.
