Belize City Police are investigating the murder of businessman Mario Guererro, whose body was found outside his residence in the Sunset Park area of Western Paradise Village after nine o’clock on Sunday night. ASP Cowo says Guerrero appears to have been attacked with a stool, but authorities are still working on establishing a motive.
ASP Alejandro Cowo, Head CIB Belize City: “Hattieville Police were called to an area in the Sun Set park area Western Paradise where upon arrival of that location they visited #1234 Sunset Park which is a boatyard area where they observed the motionless body of a male person lying on the ground under a tent. The person had multiple injuries to the head and was bleeding profusely. Also beside him were pieces of a broken stool. Police so far have that the male person was last seen alive sometime during the morning somewhere in the Ladyville area and that he was along with some other friends until the time that he was found at his residence. The area inside of the house was checked and everything was intact at the house. We suspect that he was attacked whilst he was outside under the tent.”
Police say that so far they do not believe that anything was stolen from the house. Police are looking for two persons of interest.
