San Pedro murder suspect caught in Ontario
Jordan Bacchus, 28, sought for murder in Central America, was nabbed along with a woman during a drug bust in Northern Ontario on Friday.
Greater Sudbury Police say it turns out the accused man is wanted for armed robbery by Toronto cops and has been sought by homicide investigators in Belize for nearly two years.
Bacchus is wanted by cops in Belize for the brutal killing of Melvin Almendarez in May 2016.
The San Pedro Sun has reported the 31-year-old local athlete was shot to death and then run over by a golf cart.
Bacchus was taken into custody at the time on drug charges but was released 48 hours later.
A week later investigators issued a warrant for his arrest in connection with the murder but by then it’s believed Bacchus had fled the country and returned to Canada — even though he had surrendered his passport to cops.
“We were able to find clothing with blood at his residence; his golf cart had blood underneath as well,” Henry Jemmott, deputy officer in charge of the San Pedro Police Sub-Formation, previously alleged to the San Pedro Sun.
Bacchus’ hands also allegedly tested positive for gun powder residue at the time.
