On 17th April, 2016 about 8:15pm Caye Caulker Police responded to a fight at SIP &DIP Liquor Establishment located on Avenida Hicaco, where Sharlene Young reported that her common-law husband Leon Gordon was stabbed to his abdomen. Initial investigation revealed that Leon went to separate a fight between one Austin Gabourel and Jeremy Rhaburn, when another male person only known as 'Robert' allegedly stabbed Leon. Austin along with his accomplices ran away in the direction of the Split. Leon was transported to the clinic by family members and later transferred to KHMH. Austin was located and detained and was observed to have a cut wound to his face and left little finger. He was treated and is now in police custody. At 2:45am on 18th April, 2016 Leon Gordon succumbed to his injuries. Police have since detained two male persons.

Sip And Dip Stabbing Was Fatal

The family of 29 year-old Caye Caulker Resident Leon Gordon is mourning his loss after he was fatally stabbed in a bar brawl at the Sip & Dip bar in Caye Caulker.

It happened last night at around 8:00. Gordon was trying to act as peacemaker when he was stabbed with a broken pint bottle.

He intervened after the bar owner and a patron got into a fight when the owner tried to throw the patron out for acting disorderly. Gordon reportedly tried to stop the fight, and that's when he was stabbed.

He was rushed from the Island to the KHMH, and his family told us that Doctors put him through two emergency surgeries to try and save his life. But, at around 2:45 this morning, during the second surgery, he died on the operating table.

It is especially hard on his common-law wife, since she also lost her mother in another violent incident.

Peacemaker Dies in Caye Caulker Bar

29-year-old, Leon Gordon is dead following an altercation at a bar establishment in Caye Caulker Village, Belize District. The circumstances that led to the fatal stabbing are yet to be ascertained but reports reaching Love News are that the confrontation involved two men from Belize City known to be gang affiliates. The incident occurred at around eight o’clock last night. Ralph Humes who is Gordon’s uncle spoke to Love News.


“I got the call about a few minutes to eight that there was an emergency. When I got to the health center I noticed it was my nephew. I deal with emergencies whenever anybody gets sick or injured I make sure they got to the Belize City hospital. I understand that there was an argument between the establishment owner and a young kid by the name of Austin and then there was some sort of altercation with him. The owner and his son and the young kid and he went in to try and separate them from fighting and that is when he was injured. It was a single stab wound, we managed to get him to the Karl Heusner where he underwent surgery. He came out surgery and that is when they believe he passed. I understand that they have two persons detained.”

Gordon is originally from Ladyville Village, Belize District; he had been living on Caye Caulker for about seventeen years now where he did manual labor and fishing.
