Orange Walk’s Abel Robinson murdered

Abel Robinson

In the north, another missing man was found murdered. Days after he disappeared, a search party on Monday discovered the body of twenty-one year old Abel Robinson from Orange Walk Town. The badly decomposed body was lying under a tree off a picado road in the Palmar area. Abel left home on Friday and when he did not come back, the family sensed that something was wrong. It is likely he was murdered soon after he left home because of the state of decomposition. News Five’s Delahnie Bain reports.

The family of twenty-one year old Abel Robinson is in mourning after his decomposing body was found on Monday afternoon. Abel left his home in Orange Walk on Friday night and his brother, Thomas Robinson, says he was immediately concerned when he didn’t return.

“When di man gone missing di Friday I mi know something wrong. I si something mi wrong di Friday when my lee bredda no come home because my lee bredda noh rest so. I tell my friend dat my lee bredda noh di come home, something happen to ah. Saturday morning I wake up, I get wah lee news dat something might happen to my lee bredda. Den Saturday night I yer wah next message pan di street dat dehn shot my lee bredda eena ih head but den I noh know dah who. I mi di trip. Sunday come, dehn seh dehn mi find wah body di Sunday but dehn did neva find no body di Sunday. Got we fool up, feeling like we mi find ah, but we neva find ah.”

After a weekend of speculation, a search party led by Thomas and his older brother, went on a manhunt and found Abel’s body in some bushes in the San Jose Palmar area.

Due to the state of decomposition, Thomas says his brother was quickly buried after the postmortem.

So as we done dat back deh we ker ah straight gone bury and we put him in di hole and we bury him dis morning and put ah fi rest.”

And as they grieve, Abel’s brothers are also troubled because they say the police refused to help them over the weekend.
