Two men have been murdered in separate incidents in San Ignacio Town, Cayo District. The body of the first victim was found by neighbors on Thornley Street in that municipality. Police say 48-year-old, Macario Alberto Tzib was found in a decomposing state inside his house. He was last seen alive on Saturday, but in the days that followed, his neighbors say they began smelling a foul odor coming from the house. It was not until Monday afternoon when Tabert Lisbey and his nephew decided to investigate. After finding his body, other neighbors say they also noticed his television was missing.
Even though neighbors say his television was missing, Police say they haven’t established whether anything was stolen from the residence and they are yet to figure out what was the motive.
His brother, Moises Tzib told us that Macario worked as a security officer at Big H and that he had moved from Bullet Tree Village to San Ignacio because of his job. The family was not in frequent contact with him but Moises says he last spoke with him about a week ago.
There was a recent robbery at his work place but Police say they do not believe his murder is related to that incident. A post mortem exam showed that Tzib bled to death from stab wounds to his chest and a slash to his throat. Tzib had been dead for three days; he lived alone and had no children.
