No answers in Wellington Williams’ Murder

 Tonight, investigators continue to probe into the weekend murder of 16-year-old Wellington Williams. On Saturday night, Williams was riding his bicycle on Central American Boulevard, heading toward the Belize Port Authority to deliver food, when two men on separate bicycles targeted him. The third-form SJC student was gunned down and left for dead before his assailants made good their escape. Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams, says so far investigators have not been able to identify the suspects. 

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: “At this time no we have no update. Investigators are still doing their best to try and ascertain who the perpetrator is as well as to gather evidence. It is extremely difficult because the area where it occurred was dark and while we were able to secure some camera footage, that footage was from a distance and so getting to identify the perpetrator on those footage was extremely difficult for us. We certainly are not giving up. We’re still in the area canvassing to see if we’ll be able to locate a witness or witnesses who may be able to aid the police in trying to bring a successful closure to the family of Wellington Williams.”

Reporter: By all accounts this young man was someone of good character, he was an SJC student and I believe a member of a church youth group, is there any indication that he may have been just innocently killed or mistaken for someone else ? 

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: Well we’re looking at every possibility. Like I said investigators are still looking at it. We want to ensure that we arrive at a definitive motive as well as be able to identify possibly who are the perpetrators of this crime.”
