Second Murder In a Week

There was another murder in San Pedro town Tuesday evening around 5:00. It's the second execution that town has seen in a week, and again, it is believed to be related to underworld activities.

Paul Jex and Deon Neal were at a boatyard in the San Pedrito area near the airstrip when they were shot. 32 year old Jex died from his injuries while Neal is being treated at the san Pedro Polyclinic where he is stable.

Jex had reportedly been in police custody up until an hour before his murder. He was facing a charge for possession of 20 grammes of marijuana - but reports say he received bail and was released. Within an hour, he would be dead.

The murder comes just as police had stepped up deployments on the island with the GSU which arrived there this morning. They'll be needed to contain any retaliations - since Jex was considered to be an affiliate of a Belize City gang.

Jex made the news back in 2014 when he beat a charge for the murder of Aubrey Lopez.

Paul Jex shot and killed in San Pedrito, Dion Neal wounded

It has been confirmed that shortly after 5PM on Tuesday, January 23rd a shooting incident at the entrance of the San Pedrito subdivision has left one person dead, and another one injured. The deceased has been identified as Paul Jex who received one fatal shot to the head. The other person injured in the shooting was Dion Neal, who after being shot managed to flee the scene heading into town. He collapsed on Pescador driver and was taken to the Dr. Otto Rodriguez San Pedro Polyclinic II for treatment.

According to a witness, she heard two shots as she was heading home from her job. She thought the sounds were from firecrackers, but as she approached the entrance of San Pedrito she noticed someone lying on the road. She then saw three young men running towards the lagoon side. She witnessed a man running past her who said he’d been shot. This was Neal, who managed to reach Pescador Drive before collapsing.

San Pedro Killing Gang Related

And yesterday's killing spree started at 5:20 pm in San Pedro. That's when 32 year old Paul Jex and his cousin Dion Neal were gunned down in San Pedro.

We found out more about the island's second murder in one week.

Sahar Vasquez reporting
One week after San Pedro's first murder of the year another one was added to the list yesterday.

After a long day of court hearings Paul Jex and his cousin, Deon Neal were walking on Crocodile Street - not far from the airstrip - when they were gunned down right here. Neal survived but Jex didn't - police processed the scene, covering his body on the ground in this tourist town.

The investigation has just begun but police are suspecting it is a case of A Belize City gang rivalry which has again played out on the island.

ASP Alejandro Cowo, OC-CIB Belize City
"So far the information the police have gathered is that both male persons were walking on Crocodile Street when they were approached by two persons armed with firearms. The two set to chase after them and fired several shots in their direction causing the fatal death of Mr Paul Jex and injuring Mr Dion Neal."

"I know that Mr. Jex was there attending court. He had a court date yesterday and so did Mr Neal was attending court for damage to property in Caye Caulker. That is where both of then met yesterday."

"Well we suspect that it is a rivalry between the two gangs there in San Pedro."

"He has been living in San Pedro for some time. He was in Belize City sometimes and then he moved to San Pedro travelling from Belize District to San Pedro."

While the police continue to investigate his family is left in a state of grief. His sister admits her brother wasn't perfect but he didn't deserve this death.

Voice of: Jenissey Ramirez, Sister
"Well you know he was a gang person. I am his sister but I don't know what he did out there. I did not get into his relationships out there."

"He is not a good person and he is not a bad person. He has bad records and he has had ups and downs with the law but despite the fact, he did not need to like that."

Back in 2010, Jex was accused of killing Aubrey Lopez but after four years on remand, he was acquitted.

The police continue to investigate this murder, and to contain any retaliations since Jex was affiliated with the George Street Gang.

Three persons detained following Jimell Paul Jex’s murder in San Pedro; Dion Neal survives attack

Police have detained three persons and are looking for two additional suspects in connection with the brazen shooting on Tuesday, January 23rd that left Jimell Paul Jex dead and his cousin Dion Neal injured. Jex was fatally shot in the head, while Neal received a gunshot to his lower back. The incident occurred at the entrance of the San Pedrito Subdivision. Neal, who survived the attack, was treated for his injuries at the Dr. Otto Rodriguez San Pedro Polyclinic II. As police continue to investigate, they attribute the shooting to an ongoing gang rivalry on the island.

Reports are that Jex had recently moved to the San Pedrito Area and was trying to control the drug business in that subdivision. According to one source, this latest murder is part of a chain of murders that started with the killing of 30-year-old Jason Gillett in October of 2016. The next on the list was 44-year old Antonio Pagoada, who was murdered that same month. A year later in August of 2017 24-year-old Scott Charles was gunned down at his home in the Elliot Subdivision. Later that month, 34- year-old Armando Lopez was shot and killed in broad daylight in downtown San Pedro. The source added that the last murder related to this chain of incidents was the execution of 18-year-old Christian Contreras on Laguna Drive in October of 2017. It was revealed that one side of the gang rivalry happening on the island brought hitmen from Belize City to get rid of anyone close to Jex or Gillett. Other residents also added that they had known Jex for a long time and that even though he had a bad past, he was trying to change.

Jex Killers Charged

Three persons have been charged for the murder of 32 year old Paul Jex - who was killed on San Pedro 6 days ago - as the result of ongoing rivalry between drug gangs on the island.

ASP Alejandro Cowo, OC - CIB
"The arrest of 3 males persons reference the Paul Jex murder - who are a minor and two other individuals. The first one is Mr. Timothy Carcamo, a 45 year old Belizean of San Juan area and Delson Paguada, a 19 years old Belizean of San Mateo area along with a minor from that same address. He is 15 years old."

"Will three persons be charged for murder, or will it be conspiracy and abetment?"

ASP Alejandro Cowo, OC - CIB
"What we have so far is that it was more than one shooter that was involved in that murder there."

"Are you all able to say at this point, since a Paguada is involved - if it was related to that ongoing rivalry or warfare between these rival drug gangs?"

ASP Alejandro Cowo, OC - CIB
"Yeah, as I mentioned last time, it was between the two different groups that are operating there in san Pedro that led to this murder of Mr. Paul Jex."

"Any concrete link to the murder of Simon Velasquez?"

ASP Alejandro Cowo, OC - CIB
"No, there's no direct link in regards to that murder from there - that happened here in Belize City."

The trio - including the minor - was arraigned today in Belize City Magistrate's court. They were remanded into custody until April 27.

Jex was shot along with his cousin, 32 year old Deon Neal - but there were no charges for attempted murder at this time.

Cops Say Simon Was Target Because of Jex Murder

And Simon Velasquez's murder on Plues Street in Belize City - two days after Jex is directly related. Velasquez had been detained for the Jex murder - and when police released him - he came directly to Belize City. He would be murdered within hours.

Police linked the two:

"He had just come into town from San Pedro where he was being held in relation to Paul Jex."

ASP Alejandro Cowo, OC - CIB
"He was living with a female and that is the address or area that he usually frequent and because of his name being called out or after his release from San Pedro police in regards to the investigation of Mr. Paul Jex that he came to Belize and that might have led to him fatally shot is a possibility."

"He was a well-known street figure here in Belize City and everyone knows who he associates with."

"I saw a female being taken away in handcuffs on the scene. Was this the female that she was with and was she questioned?"

ASP Alejandro Cowo
"Yes I believe that was the female who was in the company of Mr. Velasquez when he was shot. Yes she was questioned and interviewed and everything."

"You agree that it's irregular to take away a grieving girlfriend or spouse at a murder scene. It was unusual it seemed to me."

ASP Alejandro Cowo
"She was there along with the male person when he was shot."

"They took her away in handcuffs."

ASP Alejandro Cowo
"Because of the wat that she was behaving and threaten to cause injury to the officers who were dealing with her."

Jex's girlfriend was released but police have made no headway with the investigation.

ASP Cowo told us witnesses haven't been cooperating even though it happened in broad daylight:..

ASP Alejandro Cowo, OC - CIB
"I know that we had 2 persons in custody. We have interviewed them. However, we did not get anything much from them, so we had to release them after the 48 hours was up."

"It had happened in broad daylight, but it happened in a hot area. Is there corporation from eye witnesses?"

ASP Alejandro Cowo, OC - CIB
"We have no cooperation out there. We are working on information that we have been receiving and we are dealing with that."

"You all are basically working from street sources?"

ASP Alejandro Cowo, OC - CIB

Three charged with Paul Jex’s murder

Police have charged three persons in connection with the murder of Jimell Paul Jex. The trio includes a 15-year-old minor, alongside 19-year-old Delson Paguada, and 45-year- old Timothy Carcamo. They appeared at the San Pedro Magistrate Court on Monday, January 29th, where they were arraigned for the offense. Jex was gunned down on Tuesday, January 23rd on Crocodile Street at the entrance of the San Pedrito Subdivision. In the shooting incident, a second person identified as Dion Neal also suffered gunshot injuries but was treated at the Dr. Otto Rodriguez San Pedro Polyclinic II.

The initial investigation revealed that Jex and Neal had left the Magistrate Court together after a court hearing. Jex had been detained on January 22nd for drug offenses, while Neal was in court for charges of ‘Damage to Private Property.’ They reportedly headed to Jex’s new home in the San Pedrito area, and while walking on Crocodile Street, two persons with firearms approached and chased them, firing several shots in their direction. Jex was shot in the head and fell to the ground, while Neal ran towards downtown where he later collapsed and was transported to the Polyclinic.
