BELIZE CITY, Wed. Sept. 28, 2022
Carl Lamb, 18, passed away on Monday night after being ambushed and mauled by a group of men while in the Antelope Street Extension area, where he lived with his mother. Police have released no details on the incident yet, but it has been reported that Lamb received death threats some months ago. Lamb was reportedly walking on an unnamed street in the area when about 4 or 5 men pounced on him, and during the attack he received a fatal stab wound to the chest. It is believed that an older man, said to be 41-years old, was also involved in the attack that claimed Lamb’s life.
Shanna Allen, Lamb’s mother, reportedly found her son in a pool of muddy water and his own blood. He was pronounced dead shortly after reaching the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) sometime after 7:00 on Monday night.
What could have led to the brutal murder is still uncertain, but there have been unconfirmed claims that he might have been the object of some animosity because of a female who expressed interest in him but had a jealous ex-boyfriend. His grieving mother has said that he was a helpful and loving son and was trying his best to get a job so that he could assist her financially. He was scheduled to attend a job interview on Tuesday this week, one day before his life was taken, and according to his mother, he had been hopeful that he would get a job.
Allen told local reporters that she became concerned when she started to observe that lights in the area were off when Lamb would walk past a certain section of the London bridges in the community at night.
Police have made no arrests in connection with this most recent murder in the Antelope Street area of Belize City.
