By Benjamin Flowers: There were around 10 murders reported in September 2022 and Commissioner of Police Chester Williams said that a large percentage of those murders came from extraordinary situations.
Williams said today that the Belize Police Department is currently conducting a comprehensive review of major crimes for the first three quarters of 2022 to determine areas where the police performed well as well as areas that need strengthening. Willams stated that during that review, the month of September was looked at, due to the unpredictable nature of many of those murders.
“Majority of the murders that occurred in September came from left field. They did not occur in the areas of concern and were not the conventional types of murders that we are accustomed to seeing,” Williams stressed.
The Commissioner used the murders of Bernard Timmons who was chopped to death after the carnival in Orange Walk, Marcelina Makin whose body was found inside the cemetery in Independence Village, the chopping death of Ernest Blanco by his companion’s ex-common law in Bella Vista Village, and the shooting of death of Jeffrey Coats in San Ignacio as examples of abnormal murders the department has had to contend with in the month of September.
Williams added that the department has been cracking down on gang-related violence which was the major source of murderers since the year began, and says that Belize City continues to be the epicenter for that type of murder, prompting the department to maintain a special focus there.
