Dennis Arnold

A father and his son are tonight being actively pursued by Corozal police, following a mid-morning murder in the San Jomal community earlier today.  Sometime around ten o’clock a male person of Hispanic descent frantically arrived at the Corozal Police Station requesting assistance to follow up on a shooting incident that occurred moments earlier.  When officers responded to the location of the shooting, they happened upon the lifeless body of forty-three-year-old Wilberto Sarsenio.  He had been shot multiple times to various parts of the body, including his back and head.  According to Superintendent Dennis Arnold, the motive for the shooting is an altercation on Sunday involving a stolen bicycle.

“On today’s date, Monday, April twenty-fifth, 2016, at about ten a.m., a male person came to the police station requesting assistance to go to look into an incident that took place in San Jomal area of Corozal District where shots were fired at them.  As a result, police immediately went to that area and upon arriving there saw a male person face down with what appeared to be gunshot wounds, two to the back and one to the back of the head.  His name was learned to be Wilberto Sarsenio, forty-three-years-old of Corozal Town.  Initial police investigation revealed that yesterday while the deceased and another male person who had made the complaint today were in that same San Jomal area of Corozal District when two male persons came up to them, a father and a son, and accused both of them of stealing their bicycles.  As a result, threats were made by the son and today he went back and made good on his threat.”

    The killers can be the same persons that killed Rogelio Rancharan and his friend in the same area. Both men were working hard at the fields irrigating fertilizer when they were approach and killed in a similar fashion. Please police officers let us know if these killers are the same.
