By BBN Staff: Crooked Tree resident and career mechanic, Linberg Anthony, affectionately known as ‘Bug Nine’ was reportedly found dead in the Crooked Tree police station last night.
Reports to BBN, confirmed by Police, are that around 10 p.m. Anthony was found naked inside his cell and hanging by his shirt.
Reliable sources tell BBN that while Anthony was not behaving disorderly, he was detained for drinking and being intoxicated.
Villagers today told BBN that a few months ago Anthony was detained under similar circumstances and attempted to hung himself with his underwear.
Family members are accusing the Crooked Tree police of negligence. They are also claiming that since Anthony was not behaving disorderly, there was no justification for detaining him.
Anthony is a brother of Belize City street figure and reputed gang boss, Roger Anthony.
He leaves behind two daughters.
