Police seek 3 men for questioning about teacher’s murder

Marco Thompson

A trio of men is tonight being sought for questioning in connection with the brutal slaying of forty-five year old Marco Thompson, a second form teacher of Sacred Heart College in San Ignacio Town.  On Sunday afternoon shortly after one o’clock, Thompson’s nude body was discovered in a pool of blood inside the living room of his home on West and Second streets with what appeared to be multiple stab wounds to the right side of his neck.  While a motive for the murder has not been ascertained it is believed that Thompson was familiar with his attackers since there were no visible signs of forced entry at the premises.  Thompson, according to a police report, was last seen alive by his roommate, Ron Vasquez, around one-fifteen pm on Saturday afternoon.  Vasquez also told San Ignacio police that he had a telephone conversation with Thompson around 1:30 the following morning.  No arrests have been made in the case thus far and police investigations continue.

    I hope they solve this one, get convictions, and hang the killers soon and publicly.

    Should murderers be allowed to go free in the Jewel after they kill the teachers? What will be the future for the children?

    RIP Mr. Thompson. Thanks for all the words of wisdom and encouragement 14 years ago when I was a rebellious youth.

    If hanging was brought back and they convicted the murderers to such punishment I would not loose sleep over pulling the lever that would have them hang by their necks. This was a humble, excellent teacher.

  8. The Truth says:

    He was a great mentor…it was a previlege having him as a teacher and friend.

    well there should be justice in this one. that is a teacher they kill. someone who is giving back to the community by educating and sharing knowledge to our future generations, something serious should be done like capital punishment or else crimes will continue rising like crazy.
