Police: Fatal shots fired in alleged murder/suicide came after “commotion”

Posted: Sunday, March 10, 2024. 3:39 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Police have revealed further details as to what led to the deaths of Oswald Wallace Garbutt, 43, and Stephanie Lindo Garbutt, 42, both of Freetown Road, Belize City.

A witness identified as the brother of Oswald Garbutt was downstairs of the two-story property around 8:15 Saturday morning when he heard a commotion and then shots fired that appeared to come from the upstairs area. He tried to call his brother, who did not answer. A few minutes later, he saw what appeared to be blood leaking from the upstairs wooden floor to downstairs. Upon going upstairs to check, he found the bodies of the Garbutts inside their room on the floor with gunshot wounds.

Police processed the scene and retrieved for exhibit a silver and black nine-millimeter pistol and expended casings and slugs and the bodies were pronounced at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. The matter remains under police investigation.
