Screen_Shot_2015-10-05_at_8.16.03_PMSince Monday of last week we have been reporting on a vicious attack suffered by one of Orange Walk’s very own, Carlos “Paraquat” Girffiths. Over the weekend, Griffiths, who sustained a fractured skull and large cuts wounds to the face, succumbed to his injuries at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. But there seems to be a lot of questions on the way the police handled the situation and the department has now come under intense scrutiny from the public. We drilled the Deputy Commanding Officer, Inspector Nicolas Palomo on the incident to get answers….


INSP. NICOLAS PALOMO – Deputy Commanding Officer, OW POLICE
