Belize City Police are still trying to figure out who killed 52-year-old Bernadine Lauriano. She was fatally shot on Friday night and the three persons that investigators had detained for questioning were released due to lack of evidence. However, we are told that eyewitnesses saw who the gunman was, but ASP Alejandro Cowo says that those persons need to come forward to give police an official statement so they can act on the information.

“Up to now police is still investigating this matter and again like I mentioned on Tuesday we still are appealing to the public. We know that there are several persons that were there who saw what happened in both incidents that we have just reported. Again if you have any information you can feel free to call 9-1-1 or 922 TIPS and share the information and we will gladly follow it up so that we can see how we can best assist the victims of these crimes. As I had mentioned to you we have to go based on the evidence that we have and that is the only thing that we do not have at this moment. Yes there are allegations of so many things but that is not in evidence so far.”
Lauriano’s nine-year-old daughter and her son 21-year-old son, Danzel Lauriano were also injured in the incident.
