Fugitive Extradited: Suspect in Cayo Murder Now in Police Custody

After being on the run for almost eight months, tonight Dimas Duartes is in police custody and is facing charges of murder. The former police volunteer had fled the country in August 2023, after he allegedly shot and killed Erik Estrada in Billy White Village, Cayo. Police say Dimas approached Estrada inside a bar and opened fire on him, killing him on the spot. Estrada had allegedly stabbed Duarte some weeks before the incident, which police say was the motive for his murder. Police had issued a wanted poster for Duarte, but he had fled the country. However, today, Duarte was extradited by Honduran authorities, who captured him with assistance from the International Police. He was handed over to the Belize Coast Guard and subsequently detained by police.
