Anyone else following this developing story in Belize where a very wealthy socialite has been jailed on charges she is responsible for the murder of a ranking police officer in Belize? This story seriously pegs the bizarre-o-meter!



Socialite Jasmine Hartin was transferred to the Belize Central Prison on Tuesday, after she was charged with accidentally shooting dead a prominent local police officer.

Images published by The Daily Mail show Hartin — the daughter-in-law of British billionaire Lord Michael Ashcroft — being led out of a stifling San Pedro police station.

She had been held at the station — in a tiny concrete cell which a local described as "hell on earth" — since first being brought in for questioning after Friday’s fatal shooting of San Pedro Superintendent Henry Jemmott.


Linky-poo

So apparently this gal is married to (or hooked up with) the son of a wealthy British billionaire who is very connected politically. She allegedly meets up with this ranking cop to talk about her personal "security" and they start drinking. Hubby is nowhere around. Gal is not too hard on the eyes either. Anyway, after having a few drinks they decide to go for a walk on the dock (after curfew) at like 10-12pm. He says his shoulder hurts, and she starts giving him a massage. Strange, but it gets weirder.

Suddenly, this cop gets shot behind the right ear with his own service Glock. Security guard hears the gunshot and comes running to investigate. She's on the dock, covered in blood and the cop is dead, floating in the water. Initially she claims he was shot from a passing boat, but quickly changes her story after she's arrested and threatened with a coc aine charge (in addition to the murder charge). Then she says he took his gun off so she could give him a massage, and it accidentally went off when she was 'handing it back to him'. She sits in the local jail now with her bail denied.

Now, I don't know about you, but when I hand someone a pistol I generally don't do it while it's pointed at them, up near their head...behind their right ear....kinda' like how a person might EXECUTE someone!!

Supposedly, he fell on top of her after being shot, and she pushed him off of her into the water. And, this is why she was hysterical when the security guard got there.

So many questions...

1. Why was she with this guy so late, and drinking no less?
2. Why would an active duty cop willingly violate the known curfew with her?
3. Where the hell was hubby (whom she is allegedly happily married to with two kids)?
4. Why was she alone?
5. What were they really discussing?
6. Why did the cop give up his pistol?
7. WTH is going on here???
8. What's up with the drug charges?
9. Why would a cop let someone else point his own service pistol at his head?
10. How did she really get control of the pistol? This guy was huge!

1. Why was she with this guy so late, and drinking no less?


Sex and drugs.


2. Why would an active duty cop willingly violate the known curfew with her?


It's Belize.


3. Where the hell was hubby (whom she is allegedly happily married to with two kids)?


Probably with his girlfriend and/or mistress.


4. Why was she alone?


She wasn't, at first.


5. What were they really discussing?


Him: probably sex. Her: probably sex but really about how to kill him and make it look accidental.


6. Why did the cop give up his pistol?


It's Belize.


7. WTH is going on here???


It's Belize.


8. What's up with the drug charges?


In case he really did get shot accidentally.

with a story like that, I think she's right where she needs to be. I wonder if he has his pecker out and fell on here, and it accidentally fell into her vajayjay. That kind of thing seems to happen more than it should.

11. Why would she even think about hiring someone for security - that clearly has body (shoulder) issues?

You and I both know how important shoulders are. You only truly find out when one is incapacitated.

ETA, After looking at the pics of them, I’m going with blackmail. He knew sh!t on her. Threatened her and she laid on the sexual charm. Relax him down right before she executes the poor bastard.

Wondering if either person is accustomed to hearing the word 'No' very often? Judging by the photos, It doesn't look like it to me.

I've been trying to follow... lots of twists...

Date with death! Belizean cop shot dead by Canadian socialite Jasmine Hartin told friend he was going on date with someone whose name he would 'take to the grave' - as photo reveals bloodstained pier where he died

  • Police superintendent Henry Jemmott told a friend he was going on a date the night he was killed
  • Jemmott joked with the friend that he would take his secret 'to the grave' when asked for details of the mystery women
  • Hours later he was shot in the head by Canadian socialite Jasmine Hartin
  • Jemmott, 42, had also boasted that he was staying for free at a luxury resort operated by Hartin's husband Andrew Ashcroft

The fact that she has a husband would explain why he wasn't going to name her to his friend... as well as that he was apparently living rent free at the husband's resort... but where was the husband? Where is he now???


Hartin, 32, is facing a charge of manslaughter by negligence after she told cops she accidentally opened fire as she passed Jemmott his Glock service revolver.

Sources say he had placed it on the ground while the pair were drinking and socializing into the early hours of last Friday in violation of Belize's midnight Covid curfew.

Um... yeah... I believe that. Who are these sources? How would they know unless they were there too?

She has a couple of kids too:

It's not known whether the couple are currently living in the Alaia or the Grand Colony Villas, or whether Andrew, 43, and their two young children are still on Ambergris Caye.

Well, if you are going to execute a police officer, Belize seems the right place to do so.


The 32-year-old is facing up to five years in prison or a huge fine in the shooting of Belize police officer Henry Jemmott.

Source

Police sources believe Hartin will ultimately escape with just a fine for killing Jemmott after authorities opted against a murder or full-fledged manslaughter charge. They predict she could plead guilty within weeks and pay around 20,000 Belizean dollars (around $10,000 in US money) to secure her freedom.


A big fine huh? Guess she married the right guy...

But as AugustusMasonicus says, "It's Belize"!

Glocks don't in the traditional sense. They are double action, and here is a link to the system. If you intentionally pull the trigger it will fire. She felt the trigger pressure of 5.39 lbs. with her little finger I am damn sure.


This safe, simple, and fast system allows the user to concentrate fully on shooting without having any additional actions to disengage and reengage safeties. This means it is safe if it’s dropped, and additionally it functions at temperatures from -40° to 122° Fahrenheit.

All three safeties disengage sequentially as the trigger is pulled and automatically re-engage when the trigger is released.

The trigger safety is the first safety in the firing sequence. It’s incorporated into the trigger in the form of a lever and when it is engaged blocks the trigger from moving rearward. To fire the pistol, the trigger safety and the trigger itself must be deliberately depressed at the same time. If the trigger safety is not depressed, the trigger will not move rearwards and allow the pistol to fire.

The trigger safety is designed to prevent the pistol from firing if it’s dropped or if the trigger is subjected to any pressure that isn’t a direct firing pull.

Here's a question: how does he fall on top of her after being shot behind the right ear?

If she is right handed, behind him, and shoots him behind the right ear, he falls forward.

If they are face to face, she would have to be left handed. Even so, she'd have to be very close to shoot him behind the right ear and I think it's unlikely he would fall forward. He would probably fall towards the left, unless, of course, he was already on top of her.

And then she pushes the body in the water, she has a lot of blood on her. Smart thing to do is toss the gun in the water, then jump in yourself to wash away any evidence.

Since she didn't do the smart thing, I'm going to assume this wasn't premeditated. My instincts, honed by watching every Perry Mason episode many times, plus Murder She Wrote, Columbo, Sherlock Holmes, etc., tell me it's something like this:

The cop was blackmailing the woman. Something she didn't want her husband to know. They meet so that she can buy the blackmail material. I'm guessing it was a negotiation since neither money or blackmail material was found. Or if it was, the police are keeping quiet or this evidence "disappeared." Whatever the case, the cop decided he wanted a "down payment." While he was attacking her, she got his gun with her left hand and shot him in the head. Then she pushed the body off and had no idea what to do next.

The drug angle could complicate the investigation because that opens up a lot of speculative avenues however it could be as simple as coc aine induced lust and carelessness.

I and many others carry our glocks one up always meaning there is no safety.

She wouldn't necessarily have known that and if the gun was in the way and he let her remove it that could've been a fatal error.

Imo an embarrassing situation all around with some powerful players.

He could've been her type by being everything her husband is not.

Cocaine also has the ability to broaden whatever her type is.

Especially if her husband is the entitled, trust fund poofter type that understands the price of everything but the value of nothing.


She would've gotten it on with a log if she was lonely enough.


Rich people are truly screwed in a certain way a lot of people don't see it. A lot of them have lives that can only be described as the most luxurious parole you can dream of.

I have friends in Belize.
It's the kind of place where anything that happens comes as not much of a surprise.
