Police Closing in on Naming “Jane Doe”

Police say they are almost sure that they have identified Jane Doe. They have gotten contact information for a family that believes the dead woman found in the Belize River may be their relative. Based on the tattoos and description provided by police, one family says it is pretty certain that the slain woman is one of their own. One other person has come forward with information about a person who was seen frequently with the now murdered woman. Police say based on these new pieces of information, they are now looking for a man to question him. Today, we spoke with ACP Edward Broaster and he told us that the man is believed to have been the common-law partner of the woman. We asked him what police are doing at this time to solve this murder. Here’s what he had to say:

 

Edward Broaster

ACP Edward Broaster, Regional Commander, Rural Eastern Division

“We are trying to locate the woman in Punta Gorda. We had a little mix up with the numbers, but we have gotten the correct numbers from Hipolito so far. So, we will be trying to contact that individual and have them come in so that we can do a positive identification of the body.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“So, you haven’t spoken with anyone who knows this woman or last seen her?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“I personally haven’t, but since the information that came from Love FM, we have managed to get other information as to exactly where they were staying just prior to the demise of Jane Doe. And that is between the Boom Bridge and the highway. We have identified an abandoned house that Jane Doe and an individual was living in.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“Right. That individual now, we understand that she was always seen with him. Will the police be questioning him?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“Yes. We are looking for him.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“So, you have no idea where he is at this time?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“No. We don’t.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“Sir, we understand that he is very hesitant to go to the police because he feels that perhaps he will be fingered in this; and he claims he hasn’t done anything to this woman?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“Well, I don’t really want to comment into the information that we have regarding him at this time, but we are seeking him.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“Is he someone known to the police?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“Uhmm, not to us.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“Now are you able to give us a name for this woman – we have heard reports?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“Not yet.”

 

Reporter

“Sir, the last we spoke at the press conference you were talking about having an artist make a rendition of Jane Doe; talk to us about that?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“It doesn’t appear that we may have to do that. Like we said, based on the information that we got from Love FM, we are confident that we may just be able to identify the woman.”
