Guatemalan is murdered in Jalacte

While the overnight murders of two Camalote residents are making headlines tonight, the brutal slaying of a Guatemalan national, who was killed in Jalacte Village over the weekend, has gone below the radar.  On Saturday, a pair of men from the neighboring country visited the residence of sixty-one year old Fernando Sacul where they sought refuge for the night.  Sacul and his wife reportedly agreed and proceeded towards the center of the village.  When the couple returned home later that night they found one of their guests inside the home.  They subsequently inquired about the whereabouts of the other man but were informed that he had been detained by police.  The following morning Sacul was alerted by the barking of his dogs and upon checking in some bushes behind his house he discovered the lifeless body of the other individual.  Punta Gorda police are investigating the homicide.
