Relatives of Belize City taxi driver Norman Stanley Thompson, 56, believe he was ambushed and killed on Banak Street early Sunday morning, May 25.

Police visited Banak Street at 1:46 a.m. on Sunday morning where they saw a green 4 door Geo Prism crashed into a fence. Inside the car was the body of Norman Stanley Thompson of #163 West Street, Belize City. The body had one gunshot wound to the right upper shoulder and one to the right upper back. According to police investigation, Thompson was driving his car in an alley beside La Popular Bakery heading towards Banak Street when he was ambushed by unknown person(s) who fired two gunshots at him which caused the fatal injuries. Two 9mm Aguila Brand expended shells were retrieved from the area and the body was transported to the Belize City Morgue.

There has been no arrest and police investigation into the murder continues. According to relatives, Thompson’s wallet was not taken so they do not believe it was a robbery. They say he went on a job and believe he was lured to his death by someone he is familiar with because he does not respond to calls unless it is a familiar customer. Thompson’s phone was taken, presumably by his attackers.
