BELIZE CITY, Tues. March 13, 2012

The body of 23-year-old Herman Garbutt was discovered by police off a feeder road shortly after 6:00 a.m., in the Mahogany Heights Area, Belize District.  According to the police, Garbutt was shot multiple times in the head and body. 

The police recovered a total of two 9mm slugs along with three 9mm expended shells from the scene.

The family declined an official interview today but told us that Herman had been living in the Mahogany Heights Area along with his common-law wife; he had no children.

The information, we gathered from family members, was that Garbutt may have actually been killed since 11:00 p.m. the night before.  The family said that Herman displayed no signs of mental anguish or any form of fear for his life in previous days.

The police have not detained anyone in connection to this murder.  Garbutt was a laborer and also, notably, the uncle of 8 year old, murder victim, Eyannie Nunez.  Nunez was shot while she slept in her bed on Zericote Street, Belize City, in  September, 2010. 

Her murder made headlines throughout the country because it was heartbreaking to know that she was a victim of gun violence.  The gunman/men fired a total of 9 bullets at the wooden home where she slept along with her other brothers and sisters.

Garbutt’s family told us today that they are confused over this latest killing because they have no idea why anyone would murder him.

To date there has not been anyone charged with little Eyannie’s murder.
