Police: Evangelist’s murder appears to be robbery

By Marion Ali, Staff Reporter

Police say they believe that the murder of Oscar John Lambey, 28, was the result of robbery.

Police base their theory on the fact that Lambey’s pants pockets were turned out when they moved his corpse on Friday morning.

Lambey’s body was found in an open lot adjacent to Ephesus Seventh Day Adventist Church and primary school on Wilson Street on Belize City.

The evangelist, who voluntarily preached from a Bible he carried, was reportedly seen on the church compound in the company of an employee of the same institution around 10 that night.

While police have detained one suspect, they have not yet filed any charges.
