Investigators believe that Nicholi Rhys is the man who murdered taxi man, Luis Carlos Moh. Rhys was arraigned before Chief Magistrate Sharon Frazer on a single count of murder yesterday. He stands accused of luring Moh out of his home in the Kings Park Area on Monday night. And while investigators have a suspect, ASP Alejandro Cowo says that they are stilling battling to establish a motive.
ASP Alejandro Cowo, O.C., C.I.B., Belize City: “As far as we know that he was at his residence on that night when he received a call for him to do a taxi service and that is when he proceeded to a location to pick up a person. From thereafter that was the last time that he was seen alive. He is a normal person that has his number given to many people so whoever calls him he just goes and renders that service that they require.”
Reporter: But if you live on Berkley Street and you work with people in and around that area, the last person you pick up is someone from George Street.
ASP Alejandro Cowo, O.C., C.I.B., Belize City: “Well as we know that he is a very friendly person and he associates and mingles with anybody and it is the job that he does- if you need his service he will come to you. That is how he earns his living.”
Rhys was remanded to prison until July 27. Police are looking for a second suspect.
