Reward offered for information about Urbina Family Threat

The Urbinas, Rosendo Junior and his wife Becky, along with a domestic, were assaulted by armed masked men as they were exiting their secluded estate in Honey Camp on the evening of December fourth. The extended family, including Rosendo Senior, the current United Democratic Party standard bearer for Orange Walk South, took flight to the United States a few days later in fear for their lives.  So will Rosendo Senior remain on the U.D.P. ticket for the general elections? News Five understands that the Urbina family returned to Belize last Thursday and that a meeting has been scheduled between Rosendo Senior and the prime minister.  At that sit down, it is reportedly being made optional for Rosendo Senior to step down as U.D.P. candidate for his constituency should he feel vulnerable as a result of the incident.  When the incident happened, police did not rule out that the attack could have been part of an extortion attempt orchestrated by a group of criminals posing as members of the Zetas cartel operating in neighboring Mexico.  The couple, as well as other members of their immediate family, was threatened with extreme violence if they failed to hand over a large ransom believed to be a seven figure payment.  Moments after the incident took place the Orange Walk Police Department was notified of the ordeal and an investigation was immediately launched into the matter.  A reward of fifty thousand dollars was also posted for any information leading to the arrest of the culprits but so far nothing has turned up.

    He is the one that should be investigated, where he keeps the drugs, but instead what the GOB does is protect them, what a !@#$ up place to live lately, you would have to be blind for you not to see where he gets all the money even for his old man to run his politrics.

    Exactly, the Zetas aint’t crazy because if this family was a assaulted and ask for a seven figure ransom and the family do not comply with the Zetas demand this family would not be alive at this time. So there is something very fishy going on.
