Police Investigate Murder of Oscar Rubio

Sgt. Isaias Sanchez

Police are currently investigating a murder in Belize City – that of thirty-eight-year-old Oscar Richard Rubio. The investigation started on Thursday, when law enforcement officers were informed of a death by the KHMH and called to the morgue. But here’s the thing. It was Police officers who took Rubio to the KHMH on July thirtieth, bleeding from injuries to the head. They dropped him off there, along with another man, also wounded, and apparently just forgot about him, until they saw him in the morgue yesterday. So, two weeks after Rubio received the wound which eventually killed him, Police have now launched an intensive investigation. Today CIB Investigator Sergeant Isaias Sanchez took us back to the initial intervention by Police.

After the initial incident Police simply escorted the men, both intoxicated, to the KHMH. The cause of the wounds was not determined, and no follow-up investigation was conducted. Sanchez, somewhat sheepishly, told media today that the Police are faced with their own challenges.
