The family, friends and classmates of 16 year-old Chryslin Gladden continue to mourn her loss after she was violently killed on Friday night, August 1.She was stabbed to death in the Lord Ridge Cemetery, and her body was left for others to find in a manner that her human dignity was taken away.

Police have since charged a 17 year-old former classmate and friend of hers, who is currently at prison along with a man believed to be her boyfriend. That man is 23 year-old Clement Bol Jr., and they were arraigned before the Chief Magistrate on Wednesday, 06 August 2014, for the charge of murder. Due to the nature of the offence, the Chief Magistrate didn’t take any plea from them, and they were remanded to Belize Central Prison until September 5.

Gladden had recently graduated from the Wesley High School, and she was getting ready to Attend UB. On Friday, August 1, she told her family that she would be going out with friends, and she left her house. A little over 11 hours later, police found her body in the Lord Ridge Cemetery. She had multiple stab wounds to the face and neck.
The suspected murder weapon, a bloody knife with ten-inch blade, was found about 200 yards away from her body. They also found a flask of alcohol. Police believed that jealousy and hatred was the motive behind her murder.

Hundreds of Student and Graduates of Wesley College, along with Gladden’s family and friends, all marched through the principal streets of Belize City, and held a vigil in her name, hoping to inspire peace for the sake of an innocent life lost, for no apparent reason.
