Police reported late Thursday evening that they had charged Reainard Randey Ferguson, 33, for the crime of murder. They believe he is responsible for the vicious murder of Samuel Elias Zelada Cosme, 44. At the press briefing on Thursday, Police revealed that they were able to trackdown Ferguson, a resident of Neal Penn Road in Belize City, through the assistance of the community, but particularly with the assistance of the woman whom they had been seeking for questioning since the murder.

Assistant Superintendent of Police Alejandro Cowo explained what they had determined during the investigation that resulted in the death of Cosme. “On that date, they (Cosme and a woman) were at that location by the street by the Haulover when their vehicle was stuck on the roadside and they had asked for assistance to pull the vehicle out. That is when they made contact with a male person. That is when that male person went and assisted them and something happened between them that led to the death of Mr. Cosme,” explained Cowo.

Police did not reveal what exactly happened which led the supposed Good Samaritan to become a killer who brutally stabbed Cosme. Nor did they reveal what happened after, as regards the companion turned witness.

Family members of Cosme had been convinced that he was killed in a jealous rage, since they claimed the father of three had not received any threats nor did he have any ‘beef’ with anybody. Furthermore, they noted, none of his personal belongings had been stolen.

Cosme was discovered off a feeder road near the Haulover Bridge clad only in boxers. He had been stabbed multiple times to the body.
