Jermaine Hyde shot to the head

The second murder was that of Hattieville resident, 38-year-old Jermaine Curtis Hyde, who was killed on Saturday morning shortly after four o’clock in Belize City. Police report that they found Hyde’s body on Thurton Lane with an apparent gunshot wound to the back of his head. Hipolito Novelo reports.

HIPOLITO NOVELO REPORTING

At around 5 o’clock on Saturday morning, the body of 36-year-old Jermaine Curtis Hyde was found. He had been murdered.

ASP ALEJANDRO COWO, HEAD CIB BELIZE CITY

The investigation has shown that Mr. Hyde had just left from the tacos place located by Swing Bridge and was heading towards Thurton Lane when he was suddenly approached by an unknown male person who fired one single shot at him causing the fatal injuries.

Hyde, originally from Hattieville Village, was shot to head. His cousin, Sheree Salgado, described him as a friendly person who worked at the Belize City Bus terminal for the past three years. He is not known by the police so his family is perplexed as to why anyone would want to kill him.

SHEREE SALGADO, COUSIN

He is not a part of a gang and he was not a bad person. He didn’t even have friends to say associate with or company. He just goes to his dance, has a little fun and from there he would go to work so that is still puzzling us; who would want to kill him.

HIPOLITO NOVELO, LOVE NEWS REPORTER

Do you know whether or not any of his family members know that Jermaine had any altercation or any fight or argument with anyone where he worked at the terminal?

SHEREE SALGADO, COUSIN

No, and this is what we are saying. That the police needs to do their investigation, we don’t know what had transpired probably the day before or on the night when he went out so we are still trying to see what had happened.

Police do not have any evidence that Hyde was part of the criminal world.

ASP ALEJANDRO COWO, HEAD CIB BELIZE CITY

Up to now, do not have anything to point out to say that he belonged to any gang or that he was involved with any illegal activities that might contribute to his death.

HIPOLITO NOVELO, LOVE NEWS REPORTER

Could this be maybe a random shooting?

SHEREE SALGADO, COUSIN

That is what we are saying, he was probably coming home from the nightclub or somewhere that he was going, probably straight to work because he was supposed to report to work at 5 am and so he was probably coming from a nightclub or we don’t know and somebody saw him and killed him.

Police have retrieved and reviewing surveillance camera of the area. A suspect has not been identified. And for the person who murdered Hyde, Salgado has this to say.

SHEREE SALGADO, COUSIN

Why? Why have you done this to him? He is not a troubled person. You took away a father of three. If it was a mistaken identity you should have checked the person if someone had done you wrong to check who this person was before. Probably this person is your family and is related to you somehow. Why have you taken his life so innocently?

Reporting for Love News, Hipolito Novelo.

Hyde’s body awaits a Post Mortem Examination. Police are investigating
