BELIZE CITY, Wed. Jan. 5, 2022– A shocking double-murder on Monday evening on the old Maskall Road has resulted in an outpouring of affection and condolences for 21-year-old Justin Milligan, who was one of two men killed in the incident. The other, 36-year-old Raymond Dominguez, with whom Justin was reportedly playing video games inside the lower flat of a house, was apparently the main target of the over thirty shots reportedly fired by the assailant(s) who had entered through an open doorway.
Our sincere condolences from the sports desk to the families of both young men; and a prayer for the soul(s) of the cold-blooded killer(s), who brazenly took away Jah gift of life, but continue to walk on Jah earth, breathe in Jah air, and bask in Jah sunshine. Peace and love is the best way, brethren, as we all fall short of the glory. Rest in peace, brothers Justin Milligan and Raymond Dominguez!
Though not a star player, Justin was very active in the football community as a game official at amateur and youth games in the Belize District.
