Denroy Llewellyn Alvarez, a resident of Central American Boulevard in Belize City, was shot and killed during the weekend when there was an explosion of violence in the City. He’s the 4th City Council employee to be killed in 5 weeks, and he was also a son of the retired police Superintendent Simeon Alvarez Sr.

Police say that at around 8:45 p.m., on Saturday, March 17, they went to the KHMH to follow up on a report that there was another shooting about an hour and a half after the double murder of 64 year-old Theresita Flowers, and 17 year-old Delcia Blanco. At the hospital, they found Alvarez who had passed away from multiple gunshot injuries to the body.

Police investigation indicates that at around 8:40, five minutes before police found him at the hospital, he was sitting on a parked motorcycle at the corner of Nargusta and Hondo Streets. He was waiting for his girlfriend to come out of her nearby house, but before she did, a gunman approached him. That assailant opened fire on him and escaped, leaving him to bleed out on the street.

It is unclear why he was killed, because he had no street ties; in fact, he was a working man, employed as a garbage truck driver. At this time, police are investigating whether jealousy may have been a factor in his murder. Indications to police at this time is that the ex-boyfriend of Alvarez’s new girlfriend of 3 months may be able to assist them in their investigation. At this time, he is being sought as a person of interest, but he is not a resident of Belize City.

Meanwhile, the Alvarez family, and the patriarch, Simone Alvarez Sr., are trying to come to terms with the fact that their loved one was taken from them.

Simeon Alvarez Sr. told the the press, “I came to Belize City and at the KHMH, I saw the lifeless body of my son, Denroy. After seeing him I was also admitted because of hypertension.”

The Alvarez family says that he was a friendly and fun-loving guy, and as far as they were aware, he had no enemies.

Alvarez leaves behind 5 children.
