Approximately nine months have gone by since the death of Gardenia resident 45 year old Dean Dawson and still no charges have been levied against Director of the Government Press Office Dorian Pakeman, the man believed to be responsible for causing the accident.
While authorities keep on reiterating that they are awaiting instructions from the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions on how to proceed with the long overdue case, there is one major setback which was identified by Assistant Commissioner of Police, Edward Broaster during an interview with the media in Belize City earlier today.
Edward Broaster – Assistant Commissioner of Police
“One of the main problems that we are having is with the or one of the main challenges we are having is the fact that we need a report from the National Forensic lab regarding some samples that we’ve sent and to date those are not fore coming and that is the only thing that is holding up, the culmination of this investigation.”
As you may well be aware, Dawson was riding his bicycle toward Crooked Tree Village on the night of March 30th, 2016 when he was knocked down by Pakeman whose toxicology report came back negative for alcohol but positive for cocaine.
