Assistant Superintendent of Police, Fitzroy Yearwood, says that Lanza was last seen leaving a bar in Caledonia Village prior to being found by police.
ASP. Fitzroy Yearwood, Police Department Press Officer: “Around 7 P.M. last night the deceased Ian Glenn Lanza, 31 years of Caledonia Village Corozal, was socializing at a bar in that village and this morning he was found near a culvert apparently dead. So our investigators are still trying to put together what took place between 7 P.M. or after he left that bar and this morning a little before seven.”
Reporter: Have the persons that were at the bar relayed to the police whether this gentleman left the bar intoxicated or anything like that ?
