Person of Interest Being Sought in U.S. for Corozal Double Murder

Drew DeVoursney & Francesca Matus

According to People Magazine, U.S. police authorities have identified a possible person of interest in the United States as part of their investigation into the unsolved double slayings of American Drew DeVoursney and his Canadian girlfriend Francesca Matus in the Corozal District in May.  Drew’s mother, Char DeVoursney, told the magazine that a federal agent continues to investigate what happened, travelling regularly between America and Belize. Thirty-six-year-old Drew and fifty-two-year-old Matus were found strangled on May first in a field in Chan Chen village. Their hands were duct-taped and their vehicle was found abandoned but in good condition ten miles away. According to Char, she feels that multiple persons were involved and that the person of interest may have been the mastermind behind the incident. The couple was last seen late on April twenty-fifth in Corozal Town, leaving a going-away gathering for Matus, who was set to fly back to her native Canada the next day. Much remains unclear about the scope of the investigation into the deaths, including the identity of the person of interest or the person’s suspected connection to the killings. Belize police and the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation have declined comment to the magazine. Police did not respond to a request for further information over the weekend. Both Global Affairs Canada and the U.S. State Department have limited their comments to confirmation that they are monitoring the case and assisting the victims’ families.
