Villagers Enraged At Teenager’s Death Allegedly by the Hands of the Police

Updated: June 9, 2015

Caye Caulker Village is known to be idyllic and laid back, however late yesterday evening into late last night, it was anything but.  Word began circulating sometime after five o’clock that a teenager who had been in Police custody had died.  Villagers gathered in front of the health center and police station to demonstrate their displeasure.  It was not until reinforcements were brought in from Belize City and San Pedro that things returned to normal.  Reporter Hipolito Novelo visited La Isla Carinosa today and has the story.
