Security Guard murdered for $150 burglary

Haitian National, Jacques Jean Wilder moved to Belize a year ago. For the past three months, he worked as a security guard for Triple A Security fpr the past three months. He was stationed at the Foam Factory on the George Price Highway. He went on duty at 6 p.m. on Friday night and he was killed during a burglary at the building. His body was found with his hands tied behind his back at 4 a.m. on June 8.  ASP Alejandro Cowo, the officer in charge of CIB for Belize City says Jacques Jean Wilder’s body was transported to the KHMH morgue for a post-mortem examination as the only visible injury was a bruise near his eye.

A.S.P Alejandro Cowo – Head C.I.B. Belize City: “In the compound, they saw a Triple-A security guard with apparent injuries to his head. He was being treated by BERT personnel and he was thereafter pronounced dead on the spot. What we understand is that the security guard was working at the Foam factory and that he had reported there on Friday at 6pm. Whilst he was doing his routine visits within the compound he was attacked by persons who inflicted those injuries to him and caused his death. The building was burglarized and a small amount of cash was stolen from the building. At this moment the post mortem will be conducted, that will determine the cause of his death and what were the injuries that he had sustained, all that we were able to see were bruises on his face. I know that there are a number of persons that were detained and there are some of them still in custody that is being interrogated by police.”

The police is looking at the surveillance cameras that are inside the building as well as outside. We have been informed that the faces of the suspects were shown very clearly on the CCV footage. The owner of the foam factory told Love News that they don’t keep large sums of money. The thieves only got about one hundred and fifty dollars in small bills.
