Emerson Eaghan was charged with the murder of 35-year-old Dennis Nembhard in June 2009, but the 27-year-old has recently been freed of the charge. He walked free following a decision made by Supreme Court Justice, Colin Williams on Monday, November 12, 2018. Crown Counsel, Kileru Awich, was forced to enter a nolle prosequi against Eaghan because Nembhard’s mother, Elizabeth Sheran who identified her son’s body, has now passed.

Eaghan was originally convicted of the murder in 2012 and was given a life sentence. The sentence was appealed and a retrial was ordered before he was released on bail of $40,000. In court, Eaghan was represented by attorney Nazira Myles.

Reports of an aircraft landing on the Sarteneja Airstrip around 9:00 a.m. Sunday, November 11, 2018 raised concern for many residents, especially given the increasing number of aircraft landings to transport drugs. According to the police, it is too soon to come to any hasty conclusions because there isn’t any evidence to support that the single-engine aircraft was involved in any illicit activity.

The police were not able to make any checks on the plane because as soon as authorities were going in the direction of the airstrip, around 3:00 p.m. that afternoon, the aircraft took off. Both the officer posted in Sarteneja and Corozal police officers were deployed to the area but none of them made it in time, despite the aircraft reportedly being on the ground for approximately six hours.

According to ACP Joseph Myvett, Head of the National Crimes Investigation Branch, the authorities did not suspect anything unusual since a resident of the surrounding area has a single-engine aircraft and it is still unknown whether or not it was that person. It is also unknown whether a record of a flight plan was made with the Civil Aviation Department.
