BELMOPAN, Mon. Nov. 14, 2022

A post-mortem examination which was conducted on the body of Celia Florian, 35, a waitress of Mariposa Street, Belmopan, after her corpse was found on Saturday, November 5 on the Hummingbird Highway, has revealed that her death was caused by asphyxia due to strangulation as well as blunt force injuries to the head.

Florian, who was reported missing by her sister-in-law on November 2, was wearing a black blouse and black and red short pants with a silver bracelet on her left hand and a black band on her right ankle when her body was found, and her family members concluded, based on the clothing on the corpse, which was in an initial state of decomposition, that the deceased woman was, in fact, their missing loved one.

Initially, it had been reported that there were no obvious signs of foul play on the body, but the post mortem exam results, which indicated that Florian had been choked and hit on the head, proved otherwise.

Some media reports are suggesting that a police officer is a suspect in the crime.

Police are investigating the matter.
