The murder of Ghost Town Gang General, 27 year old Kendis Flowers was one of the six murders recorded during the most violent weekend in March. He was fatally shot while he was on Mahogany Street in Belize City. Following the weekend’s multiple fatalities, Government quickly announced crime fighting measures. Flowers’s family, however, still believe that law enforcement officers were involved in his murder, an assertion that the Belize Police Department has repeatedly denied. Police say they know who killed Flowers and he is no law enforcement officer. A wanted person poster is being circulated within the Belize Police Department but police fear that if it is disseminated to the public, associates of Flowers may take action into their own hands. Inspector Wilfred Ferrufino says the person they are seeking is from Belize City.
Inspector Wilfred Ferrufino, C.I.B, Belize City: “Well I know that there is an individual wanted in regards to Mr. Flowers’ Murder. I cannot comment on regards to any wanted poster and any situation in regards to any wanted poster but we do have someone that is wanted in connection with that murder that is all that I can say.”
What sorts of measures have been put in place to prevent families of Kendis Flowers to take action into their own hands with this person of interest?
Inspector Wilfred Ferrufino, C.I.B, Belize City: “I believe there has been I know that there has been some mediation done by Deputy Compol Mr. Williams and that there are other measures put in place, I think more patrols have been put in place in regards to and of course it is being followed closely and any additional resources that need to be put in place will be done.”
