Shadisha Arnold, Anna Carlos and Elizabeth McKoy are the names of the three teenagers that perished in a fire at the youth hostel on November 28 of last year. An investigative report was to be submitted in January of this year and apparently, it has been completed but nothing has been released to the media just yet. We spoke with the Chief Executive Officer for the Ministry of Human Development, Social Transformation & Poverty of Judith Alpuche.
Margaret Nicholas, who once headed the Belize Family Court spearheaded the investigation along with Florence Dillett. Reports are that the fire began when a pillow was ignited by one of the girls. Alpuche says that at least one person has be terminated already.
