3 charged for murder of Trial Farm villager

Ricardo Blanco

Three Orange Walk men have been charged in connection with Ricardo Elmer Blanco’s death. After he failed to return home on August third, the following day Blanco’s nude body was discovered about three hundred yards off the Northern Highway, a mile and half away from Trial Farm. According to police, Blanco was discovered with a piece of cloth tied around his neck and was observed with abrasions to the chest and face. Today all three accused men appeared in the Orange Walk Town Magistrate’s Court where Senior Magistrate Merlene Moody read the charges; twenty-one year old Manuel Toloza and twenty year old Feliciano Briceno were jointly charged with murder, while twenty-five year old taxi driver, Julio Castillo was slapped with abetment to murder. No plea was taken because the charges are indictable. The men, who are from Trial Farm Village, are set to return to court on September twelfth.

    Give them a fair conviction, then hang them. No mercy for murderers in the Jewel. I’ll gladly supply the rope.
