MORE TOMORROW, Cayo District–A 27-year-old Honduran farm caretaker of a More Tomorrow Village Road address was charged by police late this evening for the murder of a young Guatemalan farmer from the Harmonyville community, located at Mile 41 on the George Price Highway, who was killed and callously dumped in a drain at the side of the road leading to More Tomorrow, a village located along the Belize River in the Cayo District, early last Saturday, December 20.
Amandala understands that Juan Alberto Ramirez, 22, was socializing with a group of men at a bar in More Tomorrow last Friday night when he got into an altercation with the suspect, which is what is believed to have led to his death.
Police believe that the victim was stalked and stabbed to death as he made his way back out of the village.
A farmer who was on the way to his farm early Saturday morning reportedly found Ramirez’s body with multiple stab wounds to the upper part of the body, including a slit to the throat.
His body was taken to the morgue at the Western Regional Hospital in Belmopan, where it now awaits a postmortem exam to determine the cause of his death.
The accused murderer is expected to be taken to court tomorrow to be formally charged.
