Alleged escaped murder suspect, 24-year-old Jevaun Bellizaire, was recaptured on Thursday, August 24, 2017 and arraigned in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court. He was read a count of murder for the Sunday, August 20, 2017 murder of Belize City resident, Ryan Thompson. He was also read a count of escaping from lawful custody after he allegedly escaped police while under arrest for the murder of Thompson. He was arraigned before the acting Chief Magistrate Sharon Fraser.

No plea was taken from Belizaire for the charge of murder which is an indictable offense. Due to the nature of the offenses, he was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until October 24, 2017.

According to police, Thompson was able to give an account of his attacker. That suspect was identified as Belizaire who works as a block maker.
