Jasmine Lowe, ten years on

Posted: Wednesday, April 20, 2022. 9:08 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: A social media commentator has noted that today, Wednesday, would have been Jasmine Lowe’s 23rd birthday.

She died nearly ten years ago between June 4 and 6, 2012, after being sexually assaulted and kidnapped. The man charged with her murder, Bert Vasquez of Belize City, is imprisoned for other crimes but has yet to be tried for her murder.

Her legacy is Patrick Menzies’ Jasmine Alert program, a system that sends out messages when children are suspected of being abducted or kidnapped.

But as the commentator pointed out, like many other Belizean children, her death has not resulted in justice for her family nor condemnation from wider society.

The commenter noted that while murder has no statute of limitation, time cannot come soon enough for all to get their just due.
