Christian Espat, accused of San Pedro triple homicide, back on the island in police custody

Posted: Thursday, October 26, 2023. 3:34 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: According to police sources, earlier this afternoon wanted man Christian Espat turned himself in to the Belize Police Department in Corozal Town.

We understand he is now once again in police custody in San Pedro Town, where authorities are seeking him in connection with a triple homicide late on Sunday night that left Amira Rodriguez, her father, twenty-five-year-old Delmar Rodriguez, and his friend, Carlos Chi of Libertad, Corozal, all dead and four others injured.

The Rodriguez family and Chi were allegedly ambushed by gunmen hiding in an abandoned lot not far from their residence in the San Pedrito area. Co-accused Michael Brown turned himself in earlier this week after being named by police and has retained attorney Leslie Hamilton.

Both Espat and Brown had previously been in police custody last week following an anti-drug and gun operation but were released. Police suspect the motive behind the killings to be a quarrel over ‘wet drop’ drugs allegedly found by Rodriguez, but Espat has publicly denied having any quarrels with Rodriguez, whom police say was a close associate, or involvement in his death.
