Unknown man found murdered in Orange Walk cemetery

ORANGE WALK TOWN, Thurs. Oct. 24, 2019– Less than 24 hours after Darren Gentle, 26, was found shot to death at about 8:00 last night in a vehicle on San Jose Palmar Road in Orange Walk, another man was found dead in that district. This afternoon, at about 2:30, a man was found dead in the Orange Walk Town Cemetery, located at the corner of San Antonio Road and Dunn Street.

Police said that the yet unidentified man was found by a man who was walking in the cemetery. The man called the police and when they arrived on the scene, they saw the victim about 20 feet inside the cemetery.

The victim, of fair complexion, was lying face-up between two graves. Police said he had massive injuries to his head and face, and a bloody cross was found near his body.

Police took the body to the Northern Regional Hospital, where the man was officially declared dead.
