Hilmar ‘David’ Alamilla, accused of the 2017 murder of Daniel Sosa, walks free from charge

By Breaking Belize News Staff: Today, Hilmar “David” Alamilla was set free from a charge of murder, after the court accepted a no-case submission by his attorneys.

Alamilla, who was accused of the 2017 murder of Daniel Sosa, was represented in the High Court of Belize by Richard “Dickie” Bradley and Leeroy Banner.

The attorneys submitted that the prosecution’s evidence did not amount to proof that Alamilla was the shooter. The attorneys pointed out several inconsistencies with the witness statements and testimonies of the prosecution’s witnesses, including one man testifying in court that he was drunk and high off cocaine when he gave police his statement accusing Alamilla of the shooting.

One of the witnesses that the prosecution had on file who claimed to have witnessed the shooting never made it to trial to testify and the prosecution neglected to tender that witness’s statement as evidence. The judge would later ask the prosecution why they had not done so.

The judge ruled that the testimony of the crown’s main witness was unreliable and granted the submission.

Sosa was shot once in the head on the night of July 29, 2017. His body was found in the parking lot of the D Victoria hotel in Orange Walk. He had reportedly been headed back from a night of socializing with four others when he was fatally shot.
