Father of Junior Minister in National Security is Kidnapped; He is Found in Good Health

Elodio Aragon Sr.

The father of the Minister of State in the Ministry of National Security was abducted. A police report says that Elodio Aragon Senior, a former Minister of Government, was kidnapped after his home was burglarized. The release is very sparse with details – with no mention of what time the incident occurred or how many persons were involved.  Police have only released that Aragon Senior was taken somewhere off the Philip Gold Highway and was, “later released about two miles on the Posito Road off Philip Goldson Highway.”  But other unconfirmed sources say that the incident may have happened from around ten on Wednesday night and that three men were involved in the abduction. Speculation is that Orange Walk Police may already be questioning someone close to Aragon Senior, but this is yet to be confirmed. Other unconfirmed details that have surfaced say that Aragon Senior had water and medication in his possession when he was found. According to police, Aragon has returned home and appears to be in good health. Police are investigating this incident.  Around three this afternoon, we reached out to Minister Elodio Aragon Junior and he responded with a text message to say, “Police dealing with a report which my dad made and I don’t have the details as yet.” We’ll keep following the story.
