Belize City Man Charged for the Murder of Leslie Gillett

A Belize City barber was charged with murder late last week after investigators were able to gather sufficient evidence to link him to the murder of thirty-six-year-old, Leslie Gillett. Twenty-year-old, Earl Dean Baptist is suspected of being the gunman on the January 21 murder that occurred inside Matilda’s Mini Mart in Burrell Boom Village, Belize District. Love News understands that prior to Gillett’s death, he had been receiving multiple threats and had been shot at on several occasions. Reports say that Gillett’s murder stemmed from an alleged old dispute with the accused and his associates. However, according to ASP Fitzroy Yearwood, that belief is yet to be confirmed but investigators are hoping to establish a motive behind Gillett’s murder.

Notably, it was less than three months after the double murder of Leslie’s employees, 21-year-old Kendra Miguel and 27-year-old Dennis Brown, that he was gunned down inside his store Matilda’s Mini Mart.
