Michael Allan Hill, 59


SANTA ELENA TOWN, Cayo
District, Friday, July 11, 2008:
The community was still grappling
with news of the July 3 double
murder of the Xis father and son on
the Calla Creek Road in the Cayo
District when, three days later, on
Sunday, July 6, reports began
emerging of yet another double
murder. This time of a husband and
wife residing on the outskirts ofCristo
Rey Village in the Cayo District.
Acting upon information received at
around 9:45 a.m., on Sunday, July 6,
2008, San Ignacio police visited a
residence located between the
western villages of Cristo Rey and


San Antonio. Upon arrival they
entered the two story residence of
Michael and Donna Hill. The place
was found in a ransacked condition.
Police came upon a blood stained
towel as well as what appeared to be
blood stains on the floor, on a sofa
and on a roll of wide transparent
adhesive tape.
The report of the missing couple
and the condition of their residence
resulted in the coming together of a
number of friends, acquaintances and
business associates including Julian
Sherrard who has developed a
reputation within the community of
aggressively pursuing reports of this

BOYS FACING DOUBLE MURDER CHARGES


tackling the Guatemalan bandit
situation a few years ago. He was also
instrumental in solving the October
2005 robbery at River Walk near
Floral Park on the Western Highway
during which Oscar Chapleau and
his employee, Mei Li Lu were
violently attacked and robbed.
When he was advised of this latest
incident Julian immediately combined
forces with San Ignacio police.
The assistance of Belize Defense
Force Soldiers from Central Farm
Belizario Camp was quickly enlisted
to assist with the search for the
missing couple.
It did not take long for the search
party to find the lifeless body of Donna
Lois Hill, 55, and her Husband,
Michael Allan Hill, 59, in tall bushes
behind their house near the banks of
the Macal River both with gunshot
wounds to the head.
Donna was found with a single
gunshot wound to the back of the
head which exited just below the left
eye while Michael had a gunshot
wound behind the left ear.
The bodies were transported to the
San Ignacio hospital where they were
pronounced dead by the medical
officer on duty.
Further investigation revealed that
Donna's gray Toyota Hilux was
missing along with a shotgun licensed
in Michael's name.
The couple, retired American/
Nationalized Belizeans from
Colorado, USA have been living full
time in Belize since 1990 and were
involved in the real estate business.
They were very active in the
community and are known to be
among the maj or contributors to the
Octavia Waight Home for senior
citizens. At the time of their tragic
death, the couple was working on the
construction of a house on their
Dragon Heights property with a local
contractor and 7 other Belizeans
gainfully employed.
Within 3 days of the tragic
discovery, investigation has led to the
arrest of Jodean "Dean" Vidal, 15,
of a Santa Cruz Area address in Santa
Elena and Michael Lamb, 17, of a
#18 Cristo Rey Road address also in
Santa Elena Town.
We were reliably informed that
investigators have recorded cautioned
statements from the two accused.
They appeared in San Ignacio's
Magistrate court on Thursday, July 10
where 2 counts of murder charges
were read to them by Magistrate
Harrison Huelett. They were
remanded to the Hattieville Prison and
are scheduled to reappear in court on
Thursday, August 7,2008.
One of the accused, Jodean Vidal,
although only 15 years of age, is no
stranger to the law. At the time of this
incident, he was on bail, after
spending 9 months on remand,
stemming from charges of attempt
murder, dangerous harm and use of
deadly means of harm resulting from


a September 2007 incident in which
it is alleged that he violently attacked
Vanessa Sabala who emerged from
the assault with two broken arms and
several large wounds to the head. He
was released on a $4,000 bail on
May 6, exactly 2 months prior to this
recent incident.
Reports reaching us indicate that
upon Jodean's release on bail, his
stepfather, Denfield Arnold, the
local contractor on Michael Hill's
Dragon Heights Project, employed
him on the site. He quit working after
3 weeks reportedly because the $25
per day pay was too little for him and
he was looking for more money to
pay a lawyer to defend him on the
attempt murder and other charges in
connection with the Vanessa Sabala
incident. It was just about 2 week
prior to this latest incident that he quit
the job at Dragon Heights.
Our investigation revealed that
during the morning on Saturday,
July 5, Jodean Vidal was walking
around Santa Elena Town looking for
someone to accompany him "on a
mission to Cristo Rey". He first
made contact with two brothers who
were getting ready to accompany him
but their older twin sisters refused to
grant them permission.
It was around mid morning when
Jodean Vidal contacted Michael
Lamb who reportedly agreed to go
on the mission with him.
Jodean reportedly armed himself
with a sawed off shotgun and they
both set off from Santa Elena for the
nearly 6 miles walk to the Hills
residence on the outskirts of Cristo
Rey Village.
Upon arrival, they reportedly
sneaked into the upper portion of the
house where they allegedly met
Michael Hill. They held him up
with the sawed off shot gun, bound
his hands behind his back with
transparent adhesive tape and
demanded money. When he told them
that he did not have any money they
began hitting him with the gun and that
was when he reportedly told them
that his wife was coming with the
week's payroll in cash.
Whilst waiting for the wife to arrive,
they found Michael Hill's shotgun,
removed it from its holding case and
took possession of it.
The wife later drove up to the house
and no sooner had she entered
when she was held up. The wife
reportedly begged for their lives to be
spared and for the robbers to take
whatever cash and property they
wanted. Her mouth was then taped
and they were taken for the walk
behind the house towards the
southern bank of the Macal River. By
this time the tape had fallen from the
wife's mouth and she reportedly con-
tinued to beg for their lives to be
spared but she was reportedly told
that this was not possible as they have
both seen the robbers' faces since they
were not wearing masks.
They were shoved into the bushes


The victims' two Toyota Hilux at the San Ignacio Police compound


as each robber fired a single shot and
the life of Michael and Donna Hill
was instantly ended.
The robbers reportedly returned to
the residence and one of them
reversed Michael's vehicle to an area
behind the house in an effort to
conceal it from a front view of the
house.
They re-entered the house, filled
three suitcases with the victim's
belongings including cash and loaded
them inside Donna's vehicle for the
return ride to Santa Elena.
In the rush through Cristo Rey
Village they reportedly narrowly
escaped knocking down a villager.
The vehicle was abandoned about
a mile from Santa Elena on the Cristo
Rey Road and they walked the short
distance into town. They reportedly
relaxed for a while until sundown
after which they re-emerged under the
cover of darkness and began
spending the money and living large.
It is reported that one of them paid
$10,000 for a black Nissan Maxima
and they began circling the town until
they crashed the car later that night in
San Ignacio. This car is presently in
police custody.
During the course of their merry
making, they were reportedly briefly
detained and released by Benque
Viej o police on Monday, July 7.
Swift investigation however led to


their arrest on Tuesday morning and
this was when the cookie began to
crumble.
The investigation resulted in the
discovery of the vehicle and most of
the stolen items including the shotgun,
a GPS and a bottle of wine. They
were subsequently arrested and
formally charged for two counts of
murder.
This incident has produced
numerous far reaching negative effects
on the community and the nation as a
whole.
First of all it has since been
broadcasted worldwide on the
internet thereby attracting negative
publicity for the country.
It has robbed the community of
two productive, generous and caring
citizens.
Since the payroll was stolen and
their employees murdered, workers
on the Dragon Heights project have
been deprived of a full week's pay.
They have likewise been deprived
of continued employment as one
employee told us that although they
were nearing completion of the first
house. "Mr. Mike told us that we
would start another house and so
I know that I would have had a
job with Mr. Mike at least up to
Christmas", he said "Although
this job was slowing down,


Jodean Vidal (L) and Michael Lamb (R) shackled for the ride to the

The Final Days In The Life Of Jim Cavanaugh
As Documented By His Friends
Ivan Roberts & Francis Gegg


JIM'S HEART ATTACK
By: Ivan Roberts
On the plane on his way back to
Belize (on Wednesday, July 2,) our
Managing Director, Mr. James
Cavanaugh, suffered a massive
heart attack.
Upon landing in Belize he was
rushed straight to Belize Medical
Associates. The doctors say that the
next 24 hours are critical. He is
ALIVE but sedated.

JIM'S RECOVERY
By: Francis Gegg
There is very good news to report.
Ijust left the hospital a few minutes
ago, and Jim has made a remarkable
recovery.
All his vital signs have greatly
improved. His heart rate is down from
150 to 94, his systolic blood
pressure is down from 140 to 94, his
diastolic is hovering at around 93.
He is very conscious and no longer
restless and fighting the many wires
and drips which are hooked up to his
body.
He is not yet out of the danger zone,
but I would have to say that his
recovery is nothing short of
miraculous.
The only problem is the lack of
proper kidney function, which the
doctor says is normal, as the heart is
not pumping the adequate volumes of
blood through the kidneys in order to
have the uric acid evacuated from the
blood cells. He says that this is
normal with heart attacks, but expects
that as the heart slows down and
rests, it will start to function properly
again.
I was able to update him of the
developments with the attorneys and
he was quite pleased with the
information I shared with him.
The infection in the leg bone


(osteomilitis) is still a problem and he
will need to have more continuous
treatment in order to get that
completely healed, as that also puts
stress on the heart.
We will all need to help him loose
the weight which is also placing
undue stress on the heart muscle.
That's the latest report.

FOLLOW UP REPORT
By: Francis Gegg
This is just a follow up to my
Thursday night report on Jim's
condition.
After clearly bouncing back by
Thursday evening, it would appear
that he suffered a slight relapse, which
required the doctors to put him under
complete anesthesia/sedation. He
started having difficulty breathing.
As a result, from Thursday, he has
been totally sedated/unconscious. The
doctor on duty assured me that this
was the best thing for a heart attack
patient, as it allows the body and in
particular the heart to rest.
In particular, he is not being
exposed to any associated anxiety or
stress or excitement which are not
desirable.
Thursday when I spoke with him,
he was wanting a complete update on
every thing that was happening with
the Landowner's Association.
In looking at his vital signs it would
appear that he is making significant
recovery.
His heart rate has slowed down
from a high of 135 beats per minute
which is where it was immediately
after the incident, down to 94bpm on
Friday, and last night at 10 PM it had
further slowed to approximately
80bpm (which is the normal resting
heartbeat rate).
At the same time the blood
pressure has also been normalizing at

"Jungle Jim"
CAVANAUGH, 77,
Geologist
SUNRISE: July 29, 1930
SUNSET: July 7, 2008
125/50. While he is still under heavy
sedation and also blood pressure
medication (which reduces the BP),
these changes are very encouraging,
and indicate that the heart is being
healed.
This does not mean that he is out
of the woods yet, as there is always a
possibility of a second or third attack.
In actual fact what modern medicine
calls a heart attack is simply the
dislodging of arterial plaque which
lines the vascular wall, and migrates
to clog one or more of the arteries
which feed the heart, thereby
starving the heart muscle of
oxygenated blood and food.
This is why his inactivity is so
important at this time, so that no
undue pressures are put on his
vascular system, which might cause a
further re-occurrence or release of a
fragment of plaque.
For those of you who may be
interested, I do naturopathic and
energy healing. My normal blood
pressure is 90/60 (After meditation it
is 84/56) and my resting pulse is
60. Protection, cleansing and
strengthening ofthe vascular system,
can prevent such occurrences.
If any of you are interested in
starting a naturopathic diet which will
effectively cleanse and strengthen your
vascular system let me know and I
will send you the minimal procedure
and or diet.
The doctor advises that the other
danger which he will face is called
tachycardia, or severe irregular heart
beat. He says that frequently the
heart attack doesn't kill you, but the
tachycardia can.
If his condition remains stable, they
intend to start gradually cutting the
medicine which is inducing the
sedation, and expect to bring him back
to consciousness by monday
morning.
That's all for now. For those of you
who believe in prayer, every bit
counts. Let us all pray for his
complete recovery.

SLIDING BACKWARDS
BY- Francis Gegg
This has become a real emotional
roller coaster ride. Last night


encouraging news, but today we are
going backwards.
After talking with Dr. Gough just
now, this is what pertains to Jim's
condition. The doctor did mention that
his white blood cell count was very
high, indicative of his body fighting off
and infection. He believes that the
OsteoMilitis couldvery well have been
the contributory factor which placed
severe stress on his body, and
triggered the heart attack.
Because the vital signs were all
encouraging after last night, they had
decided to start to reduce the
medication which was assisting blood
pressure and the diuretics which
were assisting urine flow.
Oxygen saturation was also
appearing to be normal, and so they
also started to withdraw the assistance
to the body of the aspirator (the thing
which helps him to breath). When
these were reduced, oxygen
saturation levels started to decline,
urine production started to decline, as
did blood pressure indications.
Consequently, they have decided
that Jim will need to be in the ICU
unit for a minimum of 5 more days.
That's $8,800 per day, or $44,000
dollarsjust for those 5 days.
This again is outside the 880 per day
after, for the normal hospital room
services. Eva has already paid
$29,000 which I believe covered him
through yesterday.
She does not know what to do, as
his checking account is on the verge
of being depleted. Allen Reimer had
indicated that maybe the Mennonite
community may be able to help with
the expenses. In which case that is
something which at this time would be
considered of great help.
I wish the news was more
encouraging, but such are the
circumstances when severe damage
occurs with the heart.
Keep Jim ever in your prayers.

BAD NEWS
By: Francis Gegg
Today the news is the worst any of
us wanted or expected.
After consultation with his doctors,
decisions have been made to take Jim
off life support.
This will be a gradual process, but
the doctors don't expect him to live
past 2 days once this has been done.
His death could happen any time
within that period as the medicines
and aspirator are slowly withdrawn
from him.
Eva has spoken with his son in the
US, and once the final instruction is
received from his son, this process
will start.
They do not expect him to return to
consciousness at all during this
process; however, I will be
monitoring him regularly in the hope
that he does.
Eva has indicated that his wishes
were, that his body be cremated and
the ashes placed with the rest of his
family who apparently lie somewhere

Traffic Accident
SAN IGNACIO TOWN, Cayo
District, Saturday, July 5,2008:
An early evening traffic accident on
the Western Highway between the
towns of San Ignacio and Benque
Viejo has claimed the life of a 22 year
old male resident of Benque Viejo
Town.
It was shortly after 2:15 on the
evening of Saturday, July 5, when San
Ignacio police arrived on the scene
of a traffic accidentbetween miles 69
and 70 on the Western Highway
where they came upon a brown
Toyota 4 Runner with its front
portion extensively damaged and a
mangled yellow 600 cc Kawasaki
motorcycle.
Investigations revealed that the
Toyota 4 Runner, with license plates
CY-C-26318, driven by its owner,
Police Constable #267 Michael
Cob attached to the San Ignacio
Police Formation, was traveling
towards San Ignacio Town when it
collided with the motorcycle
traveling in the opposite direction.
The motorcycle was driven by its
owner, Carlos Casanova, 22,
Belizean Research Officer employed
by the Belize Social Security Board
at SSB Headquarters in Belmopan.
Reports indicate that the 4 Runner
was found on the left side of the
highway, outside of its right side lane,
and the motorcycle was found on the
other side of the highway. As a result
of the obviously massive collision, the
motorcyclist, Carlos Casanova, of
a Pedro Guerra Mena Street Address
in Benque Viejo Town, was found
about 200 yards from the point of
impact and is presumed to have died
on the spot.
The body was transported to the
San Ignacio Town Hospital where it
was officially pronounced dead while
the driver of the 4 Runner emerged
without a scratch.
It is reported that PC Cob, a
resident of San Ignacio Town, was
returning from across the
Guatemalan border where he was
allegedly socializing with friends while
Carlos Casanova, according to his
girlfriend, Johanna Gentle, hadjust
left her parents' house in Esperanza
Village and was heading to Benque
Viejo Town to attend a 3:00 p.m.,
meeting at his place of worship,
Calvario Benque Church.
Interestingly, while the police press
office issued no less than three
releases for Monday, July 7, not a
single mention was made of this
accident. In fact, as we go to press
this Thursday night, five days later, we
are yet to receive an official police
press release on this fatal accident.
Relatives of the deceased,
including a senior Police Officer, are
expressing dismay at the manner in
which San Ignacio Police are handling
the tragic death of their loved one.
The family is alledging major
irregularities in the conduct of the
investigation, allegations which if


Claims Life Of Research Officer
major black eye on the entire police
department.
Relatives say that to the best of
their knowledge, not even as much as
a notice of intended prosecution was
issued to PC Cob who continues on
active duty as if its business as usual.
To further compound the matter,
said a relative "On my way home

Ermitt Bradley's Acons Surpises Neighborhood I


SANTA ELENA TOWN, Cayo
District, Friday, July 4,2008:
He is generally known in the
community as an easy going and quiet
person. For all his 47 years, he has
never had a run in with the law but
today Ermitt Bradley stands
accused for the capital crime of
murder and the victim is his wife of
18 years.
Ermitt Bradley, 47, Belizean
laborer of a George Price Avenue
Trapiche Area address in Santa
Elena Town appeared in San
Ignacio's Magistrate Court where he
was formally arraigned for the
murder of his 46 year old estranged
wife Nerba.
Reports reaching us indicate that it
was shortly after 5:30 a.m., on
Friday, July 4, when Ermitt Bradley,
armed with a butcher knife, left his
home on George Price Avenue for the
long walk up the Cristo Rey Road to
Espat's chicken plant.
Eye witnesses informed that upon
arrival shortly after 6:00 a.m., he
called out his wife from her work
station. She exited the building and
met him outside. A co-worker said
"We did not think much of it
because we knew that they are
husband and wife and we thought
that he probably came to discuss
some family matter with her. There
was a briefargument. It happened
so quickly and the next we saw
was that she fell backwards to the
ground. He ran way and two male
workers each picked up apiece of
stick and set chased after him but
he escaped. Nerba had a large cut
to the neck and she was bleeding
badly. She was rushed to the
hospital but she did not make it."
Reports reaching us indicate that the
marriage was a troubled one which

intensified every time the husband
was out of work as the strain got
burdensome to provide for the
children. At the time of her tragic death
Nerba, had been living for almost a
year at her mother's house in
Esperanza Village. Her mother and
other relatives were arriving from Los
Angeles for the weekend wedding of
her bother that was also arriving to
wed his Esperanza bride.
It is alleged that Ermitt became
enraged when Nerba reportedly told
him that he should not attend the
wedding because her family is not
pleased with him and that her boss
would instead accompany her to the
wedding.
After allegedly committing the act
Ermitt walked home and told his son
that he had just hurt his mother and
that he is not sure if she was dead.
He was arrested shortly thereafter
and whilst in a holding section inside
the police station he was repeatedly
asking the police it they had taken the
ambulance to get his wife and if she
was dead.
After learning that she had passed
away Ermitt told the police that he will
cooperate with them and that he is
ready to go to jail.
The family came for a wedding but
was instead confronted with a funeral.
Some say that although tragic it should
come as no surprise as in the heat of
their regular disputes he would always
tell her that he was going to kill her
one of these days.
Nerba had previously worked for
several years at the Homestead Acres
Chicken Pant located next to the
Belikin Distribution Center in
Esperanza Village. It was only three
days since she began working at the
plant on Cristo Rey Road in Santa
Elena.

REMEMBERING JIM
By: Ivan Roberts
Jim's fervent desire for the people
of Belize, was, that the tremendous
bounty which the discovery of
petroleum on the Spanish Lookout
fields and elsewhere within Belize,
would come to the benefit of each
and every Belizean in a fair, just and
equitable manner.
His wealth of knowledge and
experience in the world petroleum
industry gave him a unique
opportunity to teach the
Belizean people how to avoid the
many pitfalls associated with oil
discoveries.
He struggled with his last living
breath to desperately prevent what
has come to be known in so many
underdeveloped, corrupt, third world
countries such as Belize as, "The
Curse of Oil".
The legacy which he leaves us, is

It has deprived the Octavia Waight

assistance.
It has robbed the couples' many
friends of their friendly and cheerful
companionship.
If convicted these two boys could
spend many years, if not the rest of
