Jordan Burns is being sought by police in connection with the murder of Carlton Moreira. As we reported, shortly after 1:00 p.m. yesterday Moreira was shot and killed. At today’s press brief, ASP Alejandro Cowo, Head of Crime Investigation Branch, provided an update.
ASP Alejandro Cowo, O.C., C.I.B., Belize City: “Acting upon information police visited Back Alley, it’s an alley within the Banack and the Mayflower area where upon arrival police found the motionless body of a male person lying face down in the alley. The person was identified as Kalton Jarett Moreira a 35 year old Belizean of that neighborhood. Upon inspection of the body police found that he had apparent gunshot wounds to the right side of his cheek. During the investigation police learned that the male person was walking down the alley when he was approached by two male persons who approached him and fired the shots in his direction causing the above mentioned injuries and his death. What we have learned so far from the family members is that yes he had owned some money and that he had some money on him and we suspect that the reason for him being shot was because they wanted money. So far the investigation has pointed out to a male person by the name of Jordan Burnes.”
Moreira will be missed by family and friends, especially, his two children.
