Sex worker murdered in Corozal

Corozal Police remain tight-lipped tonight following the discovery of a woman’s body on Tuesday evening. The deceased, apparently the victim of murder, has been identified as thirty-four year old Guatemalan, Vivian Ysenia Mendez Cruz, a resident of Buena Vista Village. Sources indicate to News Five that Mendez was an itinerant commercial sex worker who operated out of a number of bars in the north and west of the country. Police say when they arrived on the scene around four-thirty p.m., the body was totally nude and lying in an area along the Northern Highway between miles sixty-five and sixty-six. Police say the corpse was bloody and there were signs of trauma to the face and body. Today authorities are appealing to anyone who can help them in their investigation to contact the nearest police station.
