A Belizean was killed last night in Guatemala. He has been identified as 32-year-old Samuel Sosa, a resident of Benque Viejo del Carmen, a town which is near the border with Guatemala. We understand that Sosa was killed sometime around ten o’clock last night. Pictures show Sosa lying motionless on the ground of what appears to be a bar in Melchor de Mencos. A pool of blood is seen near his head. His family is in Melchor de Mencos at the moment attempting to get answers. Police there have captured on the woman believed to be an accomplice.  Mayra Verónica Aldana is in police custody as police believe that she accompanied the murderer who fatally shot Sosa. She was intercepted in a white Toyota car after a witness to the murder identified her in the company of a man who is known as ‘El Gordo’. Police in Melchor de Mencos believe that he is the killer. Late this evening, Sosa’s cousin, Ricardo Sosa, spoke to Love News.

“Do you know what he was doing in that area?”

RICARDO SOSA, COUSIN

“I’m pretty sure – I saw this morning that it looked like he was drinking a beer at a bar.”

“Okay and did he live in Melchor De Mencos?”

RICARDO SOSA, COUSIN

“Yeah he lived there less than a year. He was living with a girl who lived there that is why he went there.”

“Do you know if he got into a fight while at the bar? What happened?”

RICARDO SOSA, COUSIN

“No he never got involved with a fight. He was a calm person.”

HIPOLITO NOVELO, LOVE NEWS REPORTER

“What do you believe happened? Does the family know what happened?”

RICARDO SOSA, COUSIN

“I don’t know maybe he confused for another person because he was drinking in that place and the family right now is sad because one of our uncles just died last week so another family member has died so all the family we are very sad.”

Sosa is known to be a football player in Benque Viejo del Carmen Town.
