Still No Signs of Missing Ontario Teenager, Despite Discovery of Severed Human Legs

Gerardo Vasquez

An intense search effort continues in the Cayo District where seventeen-year-old Gerardo Vasquez vanished without a trace from Ontario Village over a week ago.  Despite the subsequent discovery of a pair of human legs downstream along the Belize River, investigators cannot ascertain whether the severed lower limbs are those of the missing teenager.  According to ACP Joseph Myvett, an autopsy on the severed extremities has been scheduled in the event that the search party cannot find Vasquez or his remains.

“It is still a matter that is being investigated.  The search continues for him.  As we speak, officers, along with villagers, are still continuing those searches.

“No confirmation as to the parts that were found, no connection?”

 

Joseph Myvett

“No, they have not yet been examined.  The doctors did just view them and were giving us just a little more time to see if anything else would have been found in order for them to conduct a post mortem on any other part that was found.  However, if nothing else is found by Friday then they will go ahead and do the post mortem on those parts that have been found.”

“Sir, I was told by the family that Gerardo’s phone was traced to the Baldy Beacon area up that side.  Are you guys investigating that angle or have you guys been out there to search for that phone?”

 

Joseph Myvett

“No, that information has not been given to us; however, we will follow that as there is constant coordination between the mother and the police so we will go out there and look at that information as well.”
