Two brothers have been detained for the murder of 46-year-old Alejandro Guzman. Guzman’s body was found at Hannah’s Paradise in Seine Bight Village just between Itzana and Roberts Grove Resort with chop wounds to the face, body, and hands. At today’s press briefing, Superintendent Alejandro Cowo noted that a motive is yet to be ascertained.
Supt. Alejandro Cowo, Head, Crimes Investigation Branch Belize City: “Reference the murder in Placencia. Police have detained two persons who are presently in custody and I spoke to the commander on that side and he had commented that one of the persons will definitely be charged today and the other one depending on the outcome of the investigation then we will see if that person will be charged or not. There was a machete and I believe a knife that were found at the scene that they suspect are the murder weapons.”
The postmortem results certified his death to be due to hypovolemic shock.
