BELIZE CITY, Wed. Jan. 15, 2020– On Thursday night, January 9, Timroy Neal, a resident of Roaring Creek, was outside Lucky Entertainment, a business place that is located across the street from the Roaring Creek police station, when a gunman coldly executed him at about 10:30 p.m.
The execution was captured on surveillance video, which showed Neal’s killer escaping into the night after he had made sure Neal was dead.
On the surveillance video, Neal, 28, was seen running around the front of a car. He had just been shot, and he fell to the ground in front of the car.
As he fell to the ground, however, a gunman who was chasing him came around the car, stood over him and at point blank range, fired about five more rounds into Neal’s head, killing him instantly.
After watching the video and conducting an investigation, police announced that Daniel Cruz, 25, a laborer of Roaring Creek, had been charged with murder.
Today, Cruz was arraigned at the Belmopan Magistrate’s Court, where no plea was taken from him and he was remanded until March 23.
Timroy Neal was the father of two children and has twins on the way, a relative of his told us.
Neal is no stranger to law enforcement. In 2010, he walked off a murder charge and had been fingered for other very serious brushes with the law, but he was never convicted in court.
