romeroYesterday we told you about the shooting death of 18 year old Derrick Romero of a Sittee River Street Address of the Louisiana Area of Orange Walk Town. When we left you, police were in their preliminary stages of their investigation. Today, when we checked with our sources we were told that several leads followed led authorities to the detention of three individuals. Those individuals were detained today and are currently still in custody as their statement is being recorded.


We understand that one of the men, who is from Belize City, is believed to be the trigger man in Romero’s murder. The individuals are also being investigated for their possible involvement in the murder of 18 year old Roy Bayliss who was shot to death early on the morning of August 2nd at the Fort Cairns Plaza as he ate breakfast at a popular tacos place. We understand that an identification parade was conducted late this evening.

As we reported yesterday, sometime around 10:30 yesterday morning while Romero and three other male persons were at his residence, a dark complexion male person on a bicycle arrived, hopped over the fence, asked for Romero and then proceeded to fire several shots at him causing the fatal wounds. Romero later died whilst receiving treatment at the Northern Regional Hospital.
