One child died and two critical at KHMH

[Linked Image]
Kenrick Longsworth is wanted for attacking three step children which resulted in the death of death of a 3 year old. The incident occurred on Lovely Lane in Belize City. The allegation is that Longsworth sexually assaulted as well as bludgeoned at least one child with a hammer. The two other children remain hospitalized.


There is some very disturbing late breaking news tonight. 7News has received initial information that a child is dead, and two other children are seriously injured after a terrible incident in the Lovely Lane area of Belize City. It appears to be a mass act of violence carried out against the children within their home - reportedly by the man of the house. Reports say the children may have been sexually assaulted and then bludgeoned with a hammer. Two children are hospitalized in serious condition at the KHMH. Police are on the scene at this hour. The crime is reported to have happened closer to 6 p.m. We’ll have more on this as the story develops.

Update: commissioner of police says the person wanted in connection with the death of the toddler has been captured and is in police custody. He was found in Rural Belize District and is now on his way to Belize City.

The suspect was pursued as he dodged police through the many alleys in the pink Jungle area. Residents say he is like a cat.

Fugitive Accused Killer Captured

This afternoon Commissioner of Police Chester Williams announced that fugitive from justice Kendrick Longsworth, on the run after the brutal murder of a child, 3, and the beating of two others, had been captured in rural Belize. The Reporter confirmed shortly after that Longsworth had been found in Isabella Bank, in an area called Hendy Bank by locals.

By midday today, thanks to support from the public, the bounty on Longsworth’s head was at $10,000, for any information leading to his detention. This afternoon Commissioner Williams posted a message to residents of the Jungle, an area between Pickstock Street and Victoria Street, warning them that it was common knowledge that they were hiding Longsworth, and that Police activity in the area would be ramped up. Williams also warned that the penalty for hiding or aiding Longsworth would be imprisonment of five years, according to the Criminal Code of Belize.

As promised, Police ramped up activity in the area, and video footage captured as Police ran down Pickstock Street, reportedly in pursuit of a fleeing Longsworth. Local media chronicled the activities on Facebook, as residents railed at the Police for being unable to capture the fugitive.

Minutes after that coverage, Williams made the announcement via Facebook, and pictures circulated showing Longsworth in the back of a Police pickup.

It is expected that Longsworth will be charged for Murder shortly, and other charges arising from the alleged brutal beating of the two siblings of the murdered child.

Belize's Most Wanted Caught in Isabella Bank After Heinous Crimes
Tonight we start the news with the story that has gripped the nation. Three children brutally assaulted, and one of them killed, allegedly by their step-father. And the ripples of disgust and anger only spread throughout the weekend as the tragedy sat heavy on every shoulder and united the country in the conviction that causing such harm to children was both unforgivable and unfathomable. A lot of the energy was fueled by the Commissioner of police's desperation to capture him. And after an all out community effort, he was caught on Sunday. That search culminated on at midday in the neighborhood known as the jungle - which is home to Lovely Lane, where the crime occurred.

What Happened That Night
But, for the family of the boy who was killed and the two who were injured, no apology or explanation can satisfy them. They have lost an innocent young life to the most unthinkable and cruel crime in recent memory. Cherisse Halsall has the story of what happened on Friday night: It's an extremely wicked shockingly evil and vile crime that happened at a home off Lovely Lane on Friday night.

And while this young life is gone, there is one good thing that happened: all sectors of the community came together to find him. And that was reflected in the rich, ten thousand dollar reward. It started out at a thousand dollars on Saturday morning, and then it went up to $5,000 dollars and just kept going up until it reached ten thousand dollars on Sunday.

Reward Will Be Split Four Ways
And while the community can pat itself on the back for working with the police to capture this suspect, there's no celebration for the Lavern Longsworth, she is Kenrick's mother. If her name seems familiar it's because she was much in the news about 10 years ago. That;That's after she set her then common law husband on fire, causing injuries that led to his death.
