On New Year’s, at around 10:00pm, 30 Hensleigh Ryan Jones shot his father on the head while they were both standing in the kitchen of their home located in the Village of Ranchito in the Corozal District. Fifty year old Hensley Jones was taken to the Corozal Community Hospital where doctors discovered three bullet holes on his head; two on the left side and one to the back. What caused Ryan Jones to commit the unthinkable is yet unknown. But what we can tell you is that he has been charge for the crime and will be spending quite some time at the Kolbe Correctional Facility. Since there was no Magistrate available in Corozal Jones’ case was brought to Orange Walk and we were there when he was pulled out of the Corozal Police Mobile and escorted into the court room.

It was a little before midday this morning that the Corozal Police mobile pulled up in front of the Orange Walk Magistrates Court. Locked up inside were a number of prisoners accused of various crimes. But the media was there to capture one man primarily, no other than 30 year Hensleigh Ryan Jones, accused of shooting his father, 53 year old Hensley Jones on the head three times with a .38 revolver.
Since there was no Magistrate in Corozal the 30 year old was brought to Orange Walk to be officially charged for attempted murder, means of deadly means of harm and dangerous harm.
Since the case is an indictable one the matters will be heard at the Supreme Court. As such Hensleigh Ryan Jones was denied bail and remanded to prison until his next court date set for March 5th. During the session the magistrate informed Jones that he would need to apply to the Supreme Court for bail.
So, while the 30 year old is spending his third night in jail, his father is recuperating from his gunshot wounds at the Karl Huesner Memorial Hospital, despite rumors that he passed away yesterday. We understand that Hensley Jones underwent surgery and is currently in stable condition.
He has refused to speak to the media about the incident.
When we visited the crime scene yesterday, neighbors told us off camera that there has been an ongoing family feud between father and son but that at no point, did they imagine that the situation would escalate to violence. Today when checked on Jones’ condition we were informed that he was seen by a Neuron Surgeon who has stated that he remains stable.
