Decomposing male body found in Police Street apartment

BELIZE CITY, Thurs. Nov. 26, 2015–The dead, decomposing body of Martin Crispin Lino, 56, a retired public health worker of Belize City, was found in his apartment on Police Street at about 7:00 this morning, Thursday.

On the scene, the landlord told Amandala that he last saw Lino was on Sunday when he went to see him, and Lino told him to come Thursday morning for the rent money.

The landlord said that a stench in the atmosphere was disturbing the environment, but he thought that it was a dead dog in the area. He said that he went to Lino’s apartment and as he opened the door to the room, which was not locked, he saw his tenant dead and decomposing.

The neighbors said that they last saw Lino on Monday morning.

The landlord said that at the time when he saw him on Sunday, Lino was well, but he liked to drink.

Lino’s brother told Amandala that he was to return to the United States today, but that he was called to identify his brother’s body. Due to the condition that he is in, the brother said, Lino will be buried today as soon as the onsite autopsy is concluded.

Police do not suspect foul play.

Crispin Lino is survived by two children and his wife. He is also survived by his brothers, cousins, many relatives and friends.
