Zeidy Orozco and Balthazar Lopez Laid to Rest; Family Says Thanks

Family and friends of Zeidy Orosco and Balthazar Lopez were emotional with grief today as the couple was laid to rest in Corozal Town.  The outpouring of support for the family of the couple has been constant all week, but today the final farewell was marked with the pain of loss. A post mortem concluded this morning confirms that Orosco was bludgeoned to the head and face, while Lopez was shot to the head; a single bullet was removed from his stomach. Their bodies were found several feet apart from each other near a dumpsite off the Consejo Road on Wednesday, but Orosco’s burnt car was found days earlier at another location in Patchakan miles away.  Search parties combed the area since their disappearance last Thursday night, and finally around two o’clock on Wednesday, Aaron Babb, a member of the search party, made the discovery.  While it brings some closure to the family, there is still a murderer on the loose and a motive to be established. Police are dumbfounded over this double murder and their investigations are active. Today, Lopez’s brother Martin made a brief statement at the cemetery.

“Finding the bodies was one of the main objectives. The last option we would run to was finding them dead. But thanks to God—well the police assisted after all. The many civilians; relatives from the female and relatives from the male and we reached to the point that we found the bodies. We are putting them to rest now; that’s all that we can say and we thank everybody who assisted us financially, emotionally and in the search. That’s all I can say. We don’t have no regrets; we can’t pinpoint on no one, we just want to give everybody thanks that came out and supported us. That’s all I can say.”

    Sounds like someone was very mad at the woman and the male person was with her and paid the price.
    Look at the EX’s

    Still, no more JUK on the seaside until this is solved in the case of a serial killer.
