Junior, Childhood Friend: “When everybody was trying to call him to see where he was and they went to the vehicle and he wasn’t at the vehicle. We called the phone and we heard the phone ringing in the area and they found him.”
Vejea Alvarez, Love FM News: Ciego’s family doesn’t have a clue as to why he was targeted and neither do the police as he was not known to them. Police Press Officer, ASP. Fitzroy Yearwood says that investigators are currently looking into several different angles.
ASP. Fitzroy Yearwood, Public Relations, Belize Police Department: We have a lot of different angles that we’re looking at because we wouldn’t know if there wasn’t any witness at the time. The moment that it took almost two hours for him to be found, we know that even if a witness didn’t want to be identified, they would have called that in.
Vejea Alvarez, Love FM News: Ciego didn’t have any kids but, according to Junior, he was a big brother to many young men in his neighbourhood that will remember him as a loving soul.
Junior, Childhood Friend: That man was a loving person G. That man never “watched face” when we were together. Those “ballies” hurt our family. Man was a loving person, dog, for real. That man was always up cleaning down the yard, in the house, deciding for what we would cook. That man looked out for all of us. That man was the big brother in the crowd. Check? That man was like our real big brother in the crowd.
Vejea Alvarez, Love FM News: Police processed the scene where Ciego’s body was found and recovered several expended shells. Their investigations continue. Reporting for Love News, I am Vejea Alvarez.
