COROZAL–Late yesterday evening, a post-mortem was conducted on the body of Ricardo Alfredo Itzab, 24, who was murdered over the weekend in Concepcion, Corozal District.
According to police pathologist Dr. Mario Estradabran, Itzab’s death was caused by “traumatic shock due to multiple liver and left kidney injuries as a consequence of gunshot wounds.”
As we had previously reported, on Saturday, November 1, at around 1:30 a.m., Itzab, Miguel Gamboa and Oscar Herrera, all of Concepcion, were walking on the highway heading towards their homes between Miles 76 and 77 on the Philip Goldson Highway when they were approached from the opposite direction by a lone bicycle rider.
The bicyclist fired a single gunshot in their direction, which hit Itzab in the right lateral chest area and exited his left lower back.
While police say that they are still investigating the baffling homicide, they remain clueless as to who might have been the triggerman in what has been recorded as Corozal’s 6th murder case.
