Taxi found, driver?s murderer sought

Tonight Belize City police are actively seeking a suspect they believe can assist in their investigation of the murder of a taxi driver early Wednesday morning. According to authorities, around ten o’clock Wednesday night, an anonymous tip led officers to an area near Neal’s Pen Road where they discovered the grey Chevy Caprice that the victim, thirty-nine year old Roderick Todd, was last seen driving. This afternoon, investigating officers told News Five they are still processing the vehicle, but so far the evidence of blood in the trunk suggest that Todd was shot outside the vehicle, placed in the trunk, and later dumped near mile two and a half on the Western Highway. Todd’s body was found with a single gunshot wound to the back of the head. A post-mortem has since determined his cause of death as traumatic shock to the head and neck as a result of a gunshot wound. His co-workers at the Cinderella Plaza taxi stand told News Five Todd was last seen around one a.m. on Wednesday. If you have any information on this case, please contact the nearest police station.
