Screen_Shot_2017-06-07_at_8.13.59_PMEven before Corozal Police can make any arrest for the double murder of Zeidy Orosco and Baltazar Lopez they have another murder to solve. Twenty one year old Brandon Lee Tessecum, an Orange Walk resident who had recently moved to Corozal Town was lay waited and executed sometime after eleven last night in the newly developed Dominguez layout in Corozal Town.


Senior Superintendent Dennis Arnold – Commander Corozal Police Branch


“Last night some minutes the quite community of Dominguez layout resident called reporting that they heard shots in that area as a result well we had a police mobile on patrol that had just passed that area some fifteen or twenty minute before this resident reported a shot was fired in that area so the mobile turned back and upon turning back and reaching in that area they saw a male person lying face down in a pool of blood with apparent gunshot to the face, according to a family member was out there and identified that person as Brandon Tessecum, 21 years of that area.  Initial police investigation revealed that while Tessecum was walking to the direction CCC and reaching Dominguez Layout apparently his attacker was somewhere in the bushes near the roadside and ambush him firing fatal shots, four expended shells were found in the field and one was found in the bushes.”


Tessecum was shot as many as five times to the face and died shortly and while police have not yet ascertained a motive for the cold blooded murder, an old gang rivalry is believed to have played a role in the fatal shooting.
