Police Release Recording Of Kidnapper of Baby Aiden Matus

An infant was kidnapped last week from his home in the village of Bella Vista in southern Belize. There was little information to go by at the time because the mother of the child, Yosselyn Ordones, did not want to aggravate the abductors. All that was known was that the kidnappers grabbed the child when the mother did not deliver fifty thousand dollars they were demanding from her. The child was taken on Thursday morning and later that day, around ten p.m. Aiden Matus was dropped off at the Lord Ridge Cemetery in Belize City, by a grey SUV. He was taken to the K.H.M.H. for an evaluation and Aiden was found to be safe and sound. Investigations have been ongoing and today police released a recording of the mother speaking to one of the abductors. News Five’s Isani Cayetano.

The abduction of nine-month-old Aiden Matus from his home in Bella Vista Village last Thursday has resulted in an inter-jurisdictional investigation by the Belize Police Department.  The infant was kidnapped by a pair of dark skin men who entered the residence of Yoselyn Ordones around one-thirty a.m. and snatched the child from his mother.  While baby Aiden was later found abandoned at the Lord Ridge Cemetery in Belize City on Friday, a probe into the incident remains ongoing.  This afternoon, Assistant Commissioner of Police Edward Broaster released an audio recording of a telephone conversation between Ordones and her son’s abductors.  It is the hope of the investigating officers that the public would be able to assist in identifying the voice of the kidnapper.

ACP Edward Broaster, Regional Commander, Rural Eastern Division

“We have been conducting investigations and we have detained a number of persons.  However, we have not yet ascertained the individuals that are involved in the kidnapping of the child belonging to Mr. Roque Matus.  Nevertheless, we have considered and decided to release a recording of one of the abductors demanding payment and we are hoping that any individual who recognizes that individual voice contacts the Rural Eastern Division police.  We will be offering a handsome reward for the identity of that voice that we have released to the media so that the public can hear it and assist us in identifying that individual. We believe that by getting the identity of this individual known on the recording demanding the ransom, that we would be able to crack the case wide open.”

 

Nine-month-old Aiden is the son of well-known businessman Roque Matus.  In the wake of the kidnapping, police have assisted in moving the family to a secure location.  Police have confirmed that the despite the extortion attempt, no monies have been paid out to the kidnappers.
