By Benjamin Flowers: Belmopan resident, 79-year-old Daniel Orlando Castellanos was shot dead in his home on the morning of Saturday, May 21 and though police detained a man, Castellanos’s son, who is believed to be the prime suspect, he will be released today.
Head of Communications for the Office of the Commissioner of Police Assistant Superintendent Fitzroy Yearwood, said today that police are not 100 percent certain that the man detained is the man responsible, and given the time that he was apprehended, he must be released sometime today.
Yearwood said that police are trying to ensure that police have no doubt when they decide to charge anyone with the crime, to ensure that no injustices are done to Castellanon’s family.
“If he hasn’t been released as yet, I know that sometime this morning he will be released and if we have to re-detain we will do so. But at this point we are not going to charge him,” Yearwood said.
He noted that investigators are following up on several leads and thoroughly verifying information before any charges are filed.
