Resident of Armenia Charged for the Murder of Elderly Farmer in Paraiso

Osmar Ramos

The badly decomposed remains of sixty-one-year-old Osmar Ramos was discovered inside a shallow grave on July fifteenth in a remote area in the Cayo District known as Paraiso.  The elderly farmer, a naturalized Belizean from El Salvador, was butchered and buried in dense vegetation several miles outside the Mennonite community of Springfield.  Ramos, it is believed, was the victim of a vicious chopping which succeeded an altercation with two men.  One of those individuals is twenty-one-year-old Pedro Antonio Amaya of Armenia Village.  Amaya has since been arrested and charged for the crime of murder.  Ramos’ fetid corpse was exhumed by a taskforce made up of various units of the police department almost a month after the deadly attack.  During that time his family was unaware of his absence and therefore was not reported missing.  Neither were they aware of his demise.
