By BBN Staff: Canadian national John Deshaies, who is a suspect is the murder of Canadian American couple, Francesca Matus and Drew Devoursney, is out on bail from charges of theft and handling stolen goods.
While the police have Deshaies listed as a person of interest in the double murder, he has not been charged for it. He showed up to court this morning with a team of attorneys: Estevan Perrera, Kevin Arthurs and Richard “Dickie” Bradley. Justice Antoinette Moore gave him bail this morning, valued at $20,000. He also had to surrender his Canadian passport as a condition of his bail.
He is also prohibited from travelling outside of Belize without the court’s permission, and is to report to the Corozal police station between the hours of 6am and 6pm every Friday, starting on May 19.
The court warned him that he is not to interfere, in any way, with the complainant or witnesses, and that being rearrested for any reason during his bail would be a violation of his bail. He is to reappear in court on November 6, 2017.
Deshaies stands accused of stealing over $50,000 of equipment from a Placencia casino. He was arrested and charged on May 5.
