Unitedville Man is Stabbed and Killed…

Victor Vargas

Cayo Police are tonight on a manhunt for the killer of a resident of Unitedville who was fatally stabbed early Saturday morning. It happened at around three a.m. at the corner of Albert Street in the village. Thirty-seven-year-old Victor Vargas was stabbed in the neck, and bled to death shortly after, as he tried to get help. Police say that it is the result of ongoing hostilities between Vargas and the man they believe killed him. Today, Deputy Commander of the Cayo Formation Reymundo Reyes told News Five that there was an attempt on Vargas’ life once before, and he managed to get away. This time, he wasn’t so lucky.

“San Ignacio Police visited the village on Albert Street, the residence of Mister Middleton where on his veranda the lifeless body of a male person was seen lying face up in a pool of blood. Inspection of the body revealed that the person had what appears to be stab wounds to both the left and the right side of his neck. Where the body was found was not where he was actually stabbed. The person was stabbed at the corner of the main street and Albert Street, but the person ran over one hundred and twenty-five yards to the residence of the gentleman seeking assistance, but unfortunately he bled to death.”

“Have you been able to come up with a motive?”

 

Insp. Reymundo Reyes

“So far, the investigation is that the person who we believed stabbed the deceased, who is Mister Victor Vargas, a thirty-eight year old of the said village, were having somewhat off a problem amongst them for the past two weeks. At this moment, we do not have the gentleman in custody to question what actually caused him to fatally injure Mister Vargas. But the understanding is that two weeks ago while Mister Vargas was at a bar in the village, the gentleman approached him and an argument ensued where Mister Vargas was actually chased up to his residence by the said individual.”

“Have you all been able to determine if alcohol was involved at this time? Whether where they were at the corner of the main street and Albert Street, there is a bar?”

 

Insp. Reymundo Reyes

“There is a bar but the bar is approximately three hundred or four hundred yards away from that junction. Where Mister Vargas and the said person were socializing together, we cannot say. Information is that people could have heard them arguing. But we cannot say whether both of them were together at the time or socializing before the incident.”
