Police say they have cracked the murder of Jason Belencio, a 30-year-old father of three, who was shot and killed on April 15, 2018. The murder of the loving father has left his friends, family, and even the wider population in grief. For this murder, the police have named a 16-year-old minor as the shooter. That minor has since been charged and arraigned at the Belize Family Court.

He was arraigned on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 and was read a single charge of murder. His case came with plenty security as it is understood that he is an associate of the George Street Gang. Following his arraignment, he was remanded into custody at either the Belize Youth Hostel or Wagner’s Facility. His next court date has not yet been confirmed.

On Sunday, April 15, Belencio was walking on Lovely Lane in Belize City when he was met by a barrage of bullets. Five shots made their mark to his body, piercing his head thrice and twice to the back.
