Still No Charges for Alleged Teen Killer

Samir Vivas

A fifteen year old San Antonio resident of Corozal remains tonight in police custody for the murder of twenty-four year old Samir Vivas. Vivas was fatally stabbed on Tuesday night across from where he lived at the Venezuelan Site area of the town and police believe that the minor, who is a former student of the ITVET Corozal, is responsible for the homicide in that northern municipality. The deceased, who is no stranger to the police, was involved in a fight with the minor during which Vivas was stabbed to the abdomen. He managed to make his way home and identified his attacker to his grandmother before collapsing near the entrance of his house.  Today, Vivas’ body was brought from the Northern Regional Hospital to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital for an autopsy. While the relatives of Vivas are making final preparations for his burial this weekend, the police in Corozal say that they are completing their investigation and expect to bring charges against the minor, who handed himself over to police on Wednesday.
