Homeless “Jane Doe” in Belize River Still Unnamed a Week Later

Edward Broaster

Police are no closer to identifying the body of the woman retrieved from the Belize River last Wednesday. When it was fished out of the river, it was noted that the body had several cut wounds and post-mortem certified that she died as a result of the cuts to her head.  Although Police announced that the body bore distinct tattoos, a week later no one has come forward with information leaving it to speculation that the woman may have been a homeless person. But Police are trying another method – they want to use an artist to do a sketch. ACP Edward Broaster, the Regional Commander of the Rural Eastern Division, gave us an update:

“We have not identified Jane Doe as yet. What we will seek to do is to get somebody to do an artist’s rendition of the victim, so that we can put that picture out on the media so that individuals can come forward and identify that individual for us.”

 

Reporter

“Sir, given that there has been no query, is it your suspicion that the person may not have been from around here?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“I don’t know if the person is from within this area. But I think I have mentioned this before that I have seen the individual walking the highway on a number of occasions.”

 

Reporter

“So, this would have been at odd hours or regular hours?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“Regular hours.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“Walking alone?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“Yes.”

 

Reporter

“Where exactly?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“On the highway.”

 

Reporter

“No specific area?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“No. I think one time I saw her at Haulover. Another time I saw her between Haulover and Ladyville.”

 

Reporter

“So, it’s likely that it may have been a homeless person?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“More than likely.”
