Kevin “Boco T” Myvette (aka Kevin Kelly) of Fairweather Street in Belize City was found dead in his holding cell at the San Pedro Police Station on Thursday, April 26, 2012, after 11p.m. He was the second person to die in the custody of SP Police this year.
Kevin’s body was taken to Belize City for a post mortem which wasn’t conducted until 12 days later. And after having waited nearly two weeks to bury the 38-year-old father of three, the family is outraged after having received the post-mortem results from Dr. Mario Estradaban. The results identified his cause of death as internal bleeding due to abdominal, trauma due to blunt instrument type.
Kevin’s family is now believes that cops murdered Boco-T. These findings have caused quite a stir to the family as the unofficial police story was that Kevin might have died from a broken neck which he received when he jumped a fence running away from San Pedro Police. Even eye witnesses to the arrest told Ambergris Today that the Police did use excessive force while they rounded up Kevin.
According to Kevin’s common-law wife, Lorna Wade, they will be getting a lawyer and seek legal action against the police.
