Tonight, police officers on Caye Caulker continue to investigate the murder of an island resident. She's 51 year-old Jennifer Coleman who was found bleeding on the side of street she lived on.

Daniel Ortiz travelled to the island today to find out that she may have been attacked in her home by someone she knew. Here's his report:

The body of 51 year-old Jennifer Diane Coleman was found here on the street in front of her Caye Caulker House. Police say that she had been stabbed and left on the street to bleed out.

The police were a short distance away, and they responded as soon as they got the call.

ASP Henry Jemmoth - Deputy Coastal Executive Officer
"At about 11:50 police officers were called out to the area of Aventurera Street in Caye Caulker Village. Upon arrival to that area they say a lady on the ground slumped over bleeding profusely from the neck area. Police quick actions took the person to the polyclinic where she was pronounced dead on arrival."

"Her name is Jennifer Diane Coleman. She's 51 years old and she's domestic of Caye Caulker and her date of birth I think is July 24th, 1965."

Police have an idea of what happened, but they do not want to reveal it at this time. What they know as facts right now is that she was found on the street in front of her house with stab wounds to the neck. They found a knife which they believe was the murder weapon.

Her room was being swept today for evidence, which suggests that police believe that it factors somewhere in the murderous attack:

ASP Henry Jemmoth - Deputy Coastal Executive Officer
"Initial investigation into the matter reveal this said female is living in an apartment building on Aventurera Street. So far we have started the investigation and we are looking into different leads. At this time we have one person detained presently being interviewed at this time. We have noticed that the investigators have also picked up a knife so we are looking to merge that evidence to see if we can make an arrest in this latest murder."

Daniel Ortiz
"Is there any evidence to suggest that this may have been as a result of a domestic dispute?"

ASP Henry Jemmoth - Deputy Coastal Executive Officer
"I would not like to speculate at this time. The investigation is open and we're trying to find any leads to tie into this latest case. Like how the murder just occurred we don't want to speculate and to say what any motive because it would defeat the purpose if at the end of the investigation it reveals otherwise."
We've since learned that the man who police have picked up for questioning used to frequent the house. He remains in detention.

This is pure BS on the part of the police.
It happened right in plain sight, everyone knows who did it.
It was a cracked-out member of a wealthy family and they are being protected.
One can only speculate how much it costs to kill someone in Belize.

Caye Caulker Resort Keeper Charged for Knife Murder

On last week Wednesday's newscast, we took you to Caye Caulker for the very strange murder of 51 year-old Jennifer Coleman. Well, the man who police believe to be her killer is at the Belize Central Prison Tonight. 51 year old Donald Heredia - who is a groundskeeper for an island resort, was charged with her murder when he appeared today before the Chief Magistrate, Anne Marie Smith. He was remanded until September 30. Herredia is believed to have frequented her house. Coleman was found bleeding from a stab wound to the neck. That was just before midnight on Tuesday, and though the cops tried to get her help, she passed away. The investigators found a knife on the scene which they believe is the murder weapon.

A Caye Caulker Man is Arrested for Womanís Murder on Island

Donald Heredia

Five days ago, Caye Caulker resident, Jennifer Coleman was murdered at her apartment on the island when her throat was cut.†† Today, a mentally challenged man was charged for her murder. Fifty-two-year-old Donald Heredia appeared before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith for arraignment. But his attorney, Mayor Darrell Bradley told the court that the accused has a long history of mental issues and he requested that a psychiatric evaluation be undertaken to determine if Heredia is of sound mind and understanding of what is transpiring. Herediaís family was present in court for the proceedings.† Allegations are that Heredia was at Colemanís apartment when she was cut on the throat with a knife.† A neighbour recalled seeing Coleman exit the apartment holding her neck area and blood gushing from her injury. She collapsed on the street just outside the apartment complex and by the time she was rushed to the polyclinic two blocks away, she was pronounced dead. It is believed that Coleman knew her attacker and likely invited him into her apartment. †For the meantime, Heredia will sit at the Belize Central Prison until an evaluation is carried out.† His next court date is set for October of this year.

if someone is caught with short lobsters their face is plastered all over the media same day.
Murder 4 days later because it is so much more common, non-issue really.
Long history of mental issues, specifically drug abuse.
In the US this is called a dim cap defense, the poor defendant's "capacity" for rational thought was "diminished".
Almost never works there, but they jail everyone for profit and Belize's record of convictions is dismal.
A tale of two extremes.
