Guatemalan resident of Bz. killed across border

Information is sketchy, but it appears that a Guatemalan resident of Jalacte Village in Toledo has been murdered after crossing the border into Guatemala. Fifty-six year old Vicente Ramirez, whose home was just inside Belizean territory, was found dead on Sunday several hundred yards across the frontier. The farmer, who died of machete wounds, had told his family that he was heading for the Guatemalan village of Santa Cruz to collect some money. Since the killing took place in Guatemala the investigation is being handled by that country’s police.
