Orange Walk Salesman Robbed and Killed in Broad Daylight

Less than two months ago forty-seven-year-old salesman of Orange Walk Town Michael Escalante was robbed of his licensed firearm, an undisclosed amount of cash, and his 2020 Wingle pickup truck, which was later found abandoned in the Spanish Lookout Community.

Less than two months ago forty-seven-year-old salesman of Orange Walk Town Michael Escalante was robbed of his licensed firearm, an undisclosed amount of cash, and his 2020 Wingle pickup truck, which was later found abandoned in the Spanish Lookout Community. Today Escalante was again targeted by robbers but unfortunately, this time he lost more than his pickup truck.  Reports indicate that the salesman was conducting business in the vicinity of the Cayo District when he was targeted by robbers who shot him to the head and dumped his body on the side of the road near mile thirty-three on the George Price Highway. The culprits reportedly escaped in Escalante’s Wingle Pickup truck heading towards the direction of the Coastal Road. We’ll have more on this tragic incident in tomorrow’s newscast.
