Triple Murder Mystery Multi-Dimensional
Tonight, Belize City is still reeling from the news of yesterday's triple murder at mile 10 on the Western Highway: three people not known to have any criminal involvement tied up in a room, and shot to the head.   The victims: Alarice Andrewin - the well known acting principal of Excelsior High, her friend, naturalized Belizean Vidal Antonio Yuman, and his friend from Guatemala, Maria Delfina Juarez.  What was their connection?  And why were they killed?  Well, we do know more tonight than we did last night - and Jules Vasquez has all the new information along with what police found at the scene yesterday.  Here's his story: It's inside this three bedroom bungalow that the three persons were killed. When police got there - the front wooden door and the burglar barred door were both opened.

Excelsior Mourns Its Principal
So while police are going all out - at her school, Excelsior High on Faber's Road, the administration was doing all it can to help the 87 students deal with the shocking loss. We visited this morning - and found a school still moving forward in what has been a tumultuous year: It's review week at Excelsior High, but this morning instead of getting ready for exams, they were putting up a black bow on the front fence for their acting principal - Alarice Andrewin.  Sean Martinez - Ag. Vice Principal: "This morning when we broke the news to them, it for these students, it was a shock for them. They didn't expect it, they didn't expect to come to school on a Wednesday and expect the news that they heard this morning..."

Sisters Speak Up For Alarice
And so while we have heard from police and the school - we also have written statements tonight from her two younger sisters Samiyyah Andrewin Miranda and Aisha Andrewin - both residing abroad.   Samiyyah says, quote, "She was a great teacher and most recently an excellent principal. Full of passion and ideas for how she could make things better. The biggest tragedy is that we'll never find out what could have been. As a person, my sister was outgoing, with zero pretentiousness..."

Compol Chester Snaps At BNTU
The Belize National Teachers Union also issued a statement, titled: "BNTU Livid over Gruesome murder of its member." End quote.  The statement describes Andrewin as a stalwart member and supporter of BNTU activities.   It then goes unto say, quote, "the BNTU expresses total condemnation of this heinous act but also calls on the authorities at the Ministry Of National Security to ensure that all efforts are made to find those who have robbed us of such a young, vibrant, charismatic and consummate professional," end quote. The statement got unto say, quote, "As soon as the commissioner of police and other personnel at the Ministry Of National Security boast of a reduction in crime, there is almost an immediate increase.  We recall most recently a young student, Kyron Greenand so many other innocent victims who have fallen prey to the continued lawless behavior."

Manslaughter Charge For Baby Banner's father
Manslaughter - that's what baby Thevanne Banner's father has been charged with. 28 year old Troy Banner was charged this evening in Belmopan and is expected to be arraigned tomorrow.   That charge is based on the advice of the DPP who concluded that the evidence could not support a more serious charge.  As we reported, based on the results of the post mortem, the baby boy died due to fractures to the head and back - what is known as battered child syndrome.  He had bruises under his eye, on his temple and on his back - by all appearances and findings, the little newborn had been badly beaten.

Chaos At Compre
Dissent has been simmering for some time at Belmopan Comprehensive High.  And it arises from the fact that the administration has elected to allow 17 students to graduate - after they failed to mete minimum standards for graduation.   It's a process called "recuperation" and like everything else, it's complicated.  But, the broad outlines - and the sense of injustice it has inspired in students and faculty forced a spirited sitout today - in the middle of exam week.   It all went down a little after school started today and Courtesy PLUS TV we have video of the goings-on and interviews with the students:..

GOB Vs. Andre Vega In Court
Back in October 2016, former Deputy Prime Minister Gaspar Vega resigned from the Cabinet as Minister of Natural Resources.  That's after news broke that a land scandal had been discovered, in which Vega's son, Andre, was compensated $400,000 dollars, for land which his ministry sold. That land was privately owned, which meant that the Ministry should not have touched it. Under Vega's leadership, they did so anyway, and ended up costing the Government a total of $800,000, half of which was paid to Andre Vega. The big deal was about a 1.057-acre parcel of land near the Haulover Bridge, between the Caribbean Sea and the Philip Goldson Highway. Back in January 2013, Gaspar Vega approved the purchase of this piece of land, supposedly from the Government. By that time, however, it was already privately owned.

Senior Nurse Recovering After Bering Stabbed By Mental Patient
As we told you last night, a nurse was stabbed by a mentally ill patient at the Port Loyola Acute Mental Health Day Care Center.   The victim is 57 year old Matron Agustina Elijio the Former Deputy Director of Health Services. Police told us what happened today: ASP Alejandro Cowo - OC, CIB: "What police has gathered is Ms. Eligio was at the health center when a mental patient arrived and began demanding for medication. Whilst she was sitting inside of the health center dealing with other matters the mental patient approached her, pulled out a knife from his pocket and inflicted the stab wounds on her."

Dangriga Armed Robbers Charged
In other police news, the cops have charged four men who are allegedly the culprits in a brazen daylight robbery that happened on Saturday night in Dangriga Town. It happened at a Supermarket on the edge of town, one and a half miles on George Price drive.  Surveillance video captured the entire, terrifying ordeal as three of the men had guns.   Police gave us the name of the suspects today and their charges: ASP Alejandro Cowo - OC, CIB: "Reference the robbery at Family City Super Market in Dangriga town, which occurred on Saturday the 1st, police arrested and charge four persons..."

Jacobs Got Life With Parole
In last night's newscast, we told you about the sentencing hearing for 31 year-old Henry Jacobs. He was convicted in a trial without jury before Justice Marilyn Williams of the April 2012 gun killing of 49 year-old Brian Welch. We told you that Justice Williams gave him a sentence of 20 years in Prison, but we got it wrong. Actually, the judge sentenced Jacobs to life imprisonment, with the possibility of parole after he has served 20 years in jail.

Mayor Wagner Strikes Back
On Monday's news,  you heard from Health Minister Pablo Marin, explaining why he decided to hand over exercise equipment promised to the Belize City Council to the Ministry of Sports. This is after City Mayor Bernard Wagner accused the Minister of Health of playing politics with the health and wellness initiative that he and the Mayors Association agreed to partner on. Mayor Wagner said that Marin decided last minute to hand it over to the Ministry of Sport. That equipment is now in place at the Marion Jones Sporting Complex.

Denied Social Security Benefit
Imagine going to the Social Security Board to claim a sickness benefit - only to find that you cannot claim anything because your social contributions haven't been paid in. That's what reportedly befell a Belmopan City Council employee - who has reportedly been working at the council for four years.   But, according to Social Security - in all those years, zero contributions have been paid in.  We could not get comment form the council this evening, but we know that historically they have had some issues with making timely social security payments.

Gillnets, The Full Picture
2 weeks ago, we showed you the press conference set up by the "Coalition to Save our Natural Heritage," to discuss the harmful effects that gill net fishing has on Belize's marine environment. These conservationists have been calling for a ban on gill net fishing in Belize, and they intend to present the findings of their recent study to the gill net task force. The hope is that these policy makers will be convinced by the report that gill net fishing licenses should be retired, and that the practice permanently shelved.  Well, another group of conservationists has commissioned a study on gill net fishing in Belize, which parts of the country practices it, and what its harmful effects look like. The Turneffe Atoll Trust release their report today called "Net Loss or Net Gain? Gill Net Use in Belizean Waters".

Muslims Give After Ramadan
Muslims have just finished their devotional month of fasting and prayers called Ramadan. And after that comes Eid which is the holiday celebrated by Muslims at the end of the holy month of Ramadan.   As part of its celebration, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat today gave out out pantry and grocery bags to needy persons in Belize City. We found out more:

A Walk Around the Historic Fort George Area of Belize City
As soon as you get off the water taxi in Belize City – or even the cruise ships that anchor here, you on a peninsula that juts out into the Belize City – an area called Fort George. This historic neighborhood is home to old wooden colonial houses – some in decent shape, some seriously sagging and buckling – the Radission Hotel and the Great House Inn (I stayed there 7 years ago), a handful of NGO headquarters and embassies along the coast. And at the mouth of the Belize River is the Baron Bliss Lighthouse and Memorial. I was in Belize City yesterday for a meeting and a few errands and took the chance to walk around and take some pictures.

First Belize air, land, sea mobile training team
The 571st Mobility Support Advisory Squadron conducted a first-ever air, land and sea training mission with the Belize Air Wing, Belize Defence Force and Belize Coast Guard this past May. The 571st MSAS mobile training team’s goal was to enact, change and build capabilities for each of the three Belizean forces, while building partner nation relationships. The team accomplished this by conducting various training courses, including an aircrew flying hour program, aircraft scheduling program, tactical first aid course, aircrew flight equipment program management course, hands-on radio course and an information technology principles course. Air advisors conducted a high frequency radio communications course with the Belize Coast Guard, which culminated in a Joint Maritime Exercise, the first of its kind performed in the country. Multiple scenarios were held at sea to allow the students to demonstrate the communications skills they had learned during the course.
