CNN International Correspondent Martin Savidge arrived in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize yesterday afternoon, November 14, 2012, and immediately set up interviews with San Pedro Mayor Daniel Guerrero and Minister of Tourism/Area Representative Hon. Manuel Heredia Jr., wanting to get more information on the Gregory Faull murder case which has millionaire software mogul John McAfee in the police spotlight.
“Everybody wants to know more about John McAfee and his involvement in the Gregory Faull homicide case that occurred over the weekend,” commented Mayor Daniel Guerrero to Ambergris Today. “At this point I just update them with the official police reports and that is that Mr. McAfee is only wanted for questioning in the murder case at this point and that he is eluding the law right now; he is in hiding.”
Mayor Guerrero stated that he has been very busy entertaining interviews, both on the phone and personal interviews with major media houses that include ABC News, Reuters, FOX News and media from Mexico and Canada. He has another line up of more international press to talk to, who arrived today.
What the Mayor is doing is also inviting the media personnel on tours of the island during their time here and letting them know more about our beautiful island and country, since reports on the case have been somewhat negative on Belize. The Mayor wants to show how our island/country is not all about crime and murder that this unique case has brought attention from all around the world.
“I am doing my best to explain to the media about the strange murder case that now involves a high profile individual, but I am also doing my best in showing them what a beautiful country we live in,” stated Mayor Guerrero. “I have also met with the family of Mr. Faull who has arrived to the island and assisting them in any way possible to ease their grieving. We are all hoping that justice will be served in the death Mr. Faull.”
In the meantime, McAfee is still wanted for questioning, a couple people are still detained, his bodyguard and bodyguard’s wife have been charged for “kept fire arm and ammunition” and the murder case is still under investigation.
