“Police responded to an area on the Banana Bank Road opposite the Belmopan airstrip where upon arrival they were briefed by Fire Department personnel that they were called to the scene of a fire on 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, the fifteenth of May. And sometime later in the evening around five p.m. while sifting through the rubble, they came across human remains in the rubble. As a result the police were called, the scene was processed and on yesterday’s date, the scene was visited by the forensic pathologist. Thereafter the remains were taken to the Western Regional Hospital where a postmortem was conducted for which the cause was undetermined due to charged bones.”
