WANTED FOR THREE MURDERS: Peterson ‘El Chapo’ Cullis Magloure

A MAN wanted for three murders was shot dead by police near his La Canoa, Santa Cruz home yesterday morning.

Police said around 3 a.m. officers of the North Eastern Divisional Task Force went to the home of Peterson Cullis Magloure alias “El Chapo”.

“El Chapo” is the nickname of the Mexican drug lord and crime cartel leader Joaquin Guzman, once considered by international law enforcement as the most powerful drug trafficker in the world.

He is serving a life sentence in a United States prison.

Police said they went to Magloure’s home yesterday to question him about the murders of a mother and son at their mini-mart at the corner of Saddle Road and Santa Cruz Old Road in San Juan on Tuesday. They said when they entered the house they found him in bed.

An unidentified woman who was with Magloure ran out of the house.

Police said Magloure then reached for a gun and they opened fire.

He was struck three times about the body following which he was taken to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Wanted for another murder

Police said Magloure was also wanted in connection with the murder of Candy Ann Mc Intyre, 36, who was shot dead in June after attending her son’s primary school graduation.

The murder occurred at San­ta Bar­bara Boule­vard in Santa Cruz.

Police said she had been targeted because she testified against three men in a 15-year-old murder case.
