Security Guard Mutilated Overnight in Belmopan

In the capital, a vicious murder occurred overnight and one person has been detained for questioning.  A security guard was hacked to death and his body left at the premises of Anchor Security located at the entrance of Belmopan. The body of sixty-year-old Feliciano Noralez was discovered this morning; he left his home on Monday evening heading to work; that was the last time his family would see him alive. Duane Moody spoke to his grieving wife and files this report.

The third murder for the Belmopan area since the beginning of the year occurred just before dawn this morning at a business establishment off Entrepreneur Road at the entrance of Belmopan. Sixty year old Feliciano Richard Noralez was viciously killed as he covered the night shift at Anchor Security, where he has been working for the past nine months.

Belmopan police received a distress call sometime around five this morning and headed out to the compound of Anchor Security where on the second floor of the building, the body of Noralez was discovered. He was lying face down in a pool of blood with chop wounds to the head and upper body; his right hand was severed.

“We promptly responded. Upon arrival, we discovered a male person, a security guard at the Anchor Security. He had cut wounds to the upper parts of the body. The person was later identified to be Feliciano Richard Noralez, a sixty year old male of Belmopan City also. An investigation was immediately launched…so far we have one person in custody. This is a person of interest. The investigation is very young, but we will continue to probe into this latest murder and see how we can have it solved.”


Noralez’s common-law wife, Sherida Arana, was waiting patiently for his return home today, but around eight this morning, she was informed of Noralez’s demise. But who would want the elderly man dead?

If the person whoever do it mi come to me and say Sher this dah weh I want do…I mi wah ask dehn why?”


Supt. Howell Gillett

“There are two motives that we are working on. At this time, we are now narrowing down to one, but there are two. But if I would disclose the direct motives, it would endanger some people’s lives. But there are two we are working on, but I’m sure we will narrow it down to one and we will have some form of closure to this case very soon.”


A former employee of the security firm has been detained in connection with this latest homicide. Duane Moody for News Five.

    So sad, a man cannot even go to work an honest job and go home to his family safely. A woman left to care for a young child, another fatherless child. What cul be so bad to chop someone to death, God help Belize.
