By BBN Staff: On Thursday, September 28th around 4:30 PM, Dangriga police visited Valley Community on the Hummingbird Highway at the farm of Lindon Lewis where Ramon Teck, 30, a butcher of Bullet Tree Village, Cayo reported that around 2 pm, he, Luis Sierra (also a butcher of Bullet Tree), and Lindon Lewis went to Lewis’s farm to see some cattle which Lewis was going to sell them.
Teck said that while at the farm, a man of Hispanic descent came out the bushes and fired a single shot at Sierra on his abdomen.
The culprit then reportedly pointed the gun at Teck, however, Teck ran in the bushes and managed to escape.
Family members of Sierra reported to police that at 2:30 pm, they received a phone call from him at which time he told them that he had been shot and then the call was cut off.
Efforts were made to contact him by his family but were fruitless.
Police then launched a search for Sierra on Thursday evening, however they couldn’t find him.
On Friday, September 29th the search continued and around mid-day, Sierra’s body was found at the bottom of a hill in the area where the incident occurred.
According to police, they have detained 2 persons of interests and they have retrieved a .38 SPL revolver which they believe was used for the murder.
The revolver had 4 live rounds and 1 expended shell and was taken to the Dangriga Police Station for processing.
Sierra’s family believes that he was lured to his death and it was not a legitimate business deal that he was pursuing with Lindon Lewis.
Sierra leaves behind 4 children and his body now awaits a postmortem examination at the Dangriga Hospital Morgue.
