Griffith Cadle stabbing: Suspect held as police probe mental state

Murder in Corozal

Posted: Tuesday, June 18, 2024. 11:59 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: Police have held a suspect in the murder of Griffith McNaughton Cadle, 67, stabbed dead Thursday night on St Joseph Street near Nurse Seay Street.

As explained by police, Cadle, a retired U.S. Army veteran better known as Junior, was with another man consuming alcoholic beverages at a store nearby, and he was walking on the street when this person approached him and inflicted a stab wound injury on him.

ACP Hilberto Romero, officer Commanding Eastern Division, confirmed that the suspect was recently released from the Belize Central Prison, but did not get into reports that either man suffers from mental disorders.

Minister of Home Affairs and area representative for Caribbean Shores within whose bounds the murder took place, Kareem Musa, described Cadle as “completely harmless; he is not a threat to anybody whatsoever.” He did confirm that the suspect in the murder had been in jail for ten years and was released only a month ago. The file is being compiled and forwarded to the DPP to charge that individual.

Musa reflected that in June, recognized as Men’s Mental Health Month, society needs to do more for mental patients, especially those who are without a home except for the streets: “And so I think while it is that the Ministry of Human Development and the Ministry of Health is doing an excellent job of tracking out mental patients, I think it’s we all need to do more for the homeless for those who are mentally ill and to try to look out for them as best as we can. I know that this happened very late in the night but again we all have our own lives to go home to and we can’t just be monitoring those who are out on the street but as best as we can we have to try to look out for them.”
