By Aaron Humes: Police continue to search out the reason behind Wednesday morning’s apparent murder of Chinese Belizean businessman Zihui He, 52, found shot a mile in on the John Smith Link Road.
Assistant Superintendent of Police Fitzroy Yearwood, Communications Officer for the Belize Police Department, reported that He’s body was not found far from his house on the road. Investigators believe he was approached from behind and shot while completing his customary morning walk in the area.
ASP Yearwood during a news briefing indicated that robbery was not considered a motive and that it may have been more personal: “When you go walking, you, of course, wouldn’t be taking any excess weight on you, especially with the type of apparel that you would use when you are exercising. So, we have ruled out robbery and like you clearly stated, we are trying to establish the motive. So, for us to move forward, it would want to lean towards what people on the streets would refer to as a hired kill.”
ASP Yearwood suggested it was “a safe guess” that He may have been monitored or followed, though he would not officially speculate. Neither was he able to indicate how police were led to the body, or how the perpetrators got to the area.
Police investigations continue.
