By Aaron Humes: Commissioner of Police Chester Williams says he has been given the full support of Prime Minister John Briceno and Minister of Home Affairs Kareem Musa to investigate the death of Superintendent of Police Henry Jemmott earlier today.
Jemmott was shot once behind the right ear and was found in the water near the pier this morning.
The Commissioner said he had briefed both men earlier today and they both assured him that the chips would have to fall where they may.
Superintendent of Police Alejandro Cowo, officer in charge of Crimes Investigation Branch, Belize City and CIB cop Inspector Cawich will lead the investigation.
There being no evidence of a third actor, much of the evidence will lead a certain way.
While it is the right of any one to have their attorney present and decide whether or not to cooperate, but police are not precluded from drawing their own conclusions, or allowing the Director of Public Prosecutions to do so.
Supt. Jemmott was scheduled to take over at Precinct 2, Belize City, but had taken time off for personal issues.
