Lessons from Kevin Moore’s fatal dash to freedom from Prison

When we spoke to Kolbe CEO Virgilio Murillo earlier today we had an opportunity to ask him about the recent death at the prison. 19 year old Kevin Moore, a man suffering from schizophrenia was shot in the foot after he scaled the exterior fence of the Belize Central Prison on April 30. Murillo spoke of the dual police and prison investigations which were launched and what they have learned so far after Moore passed away from his injuries.  

Jose Sanchez- Reporter: “The prisoner who passed away, regarding your internal investigation, has there been any update? Has there been any issues with the family, have you looked at anything that needs to be revisited in terms of security during recreation time?”

Virgilio Murillo – CEO Kolbe Foundation: Well certainly, I think I had mentioned to the media the other day that the cause of death was asphyxia due to bronchial aspiration, whatever that means. We looked at the situation, like I said at the last time we cannot really see who was escaping at that time so we just had to do what we had to do as a prison. Escapes are certainly not something that should happen from a prison and when a prisoner tries to scale the fence they all run the risk of being shot and killed. We try to disable for the most part but if it doesn’t happen then it doesn’t happen, it is unfortunate. We have looked at our procedures, we have ramped up security, no doubt about it and we do not expect any other escape to take place. If you notice yesterday was Tuesday and we have been having these escapes successfully every Tuesday for the last three weeks. Well, yesterday Tuesday thank God it looks like the trend has been broken and we plan to keep it that way, no doubt about it.”
