The Arson of ACES in 2010

PG TV captured the horrific crime committed by villagers on Sept. 5, 2010. This actual footage is for the friends and family of Cherie and Vince Rose who never got to see what was aired in Punta Gorda, Belize. Our loss was a tragic, violent, and an unnecessary crime. We have been informed that the missing children are safe in Guatemala with their biological father. CrimeStoppers has been contacted to investigate and we pray they will  be able to confirm this information. There is a reward for the return of the missing children, and for any information leading to the arrest of the arsonists so that they never harm so many innocent lives again.

Aug. 17th, 2012, A declaration is granted that a riotous assembly of persons, as defined in section 2 of the Riot Compensation Act Chapter 338 assembled at the claimants' property situated at Water Hole Road, Forest Home village, Toledo District for the purpose of executing a common purpose with violence and without lawful authority used such violence for that purpose to wit: they intentionally set fire and destroyed three houses, furniture, household utensils and other property owned by the claimants. I will now hear the parties on the issue of compensation. 


The Defense has appealed on the grounds that Judge Legall erred in his decisions.

To date, no arrests have been made; we pray to GOD that justice will prevail!
