Altercation in Selena Results in Bloody Murder

Richard Rosado

The last time News Five travelled to the small community of Selena in the Cayo District, it was to cover the gruesome murder of Canadian producer Matthiew Klinck. Tonight, one man is dead and another is clinging to life after a brutal chopping in Selena, and police are hunting for two suspected murders. Preliminary investigations suggest that as far as motive is concerned, the case may be a simple matter of an alcohol fueled altercation turned fatal. Officer Commanding San Ignacio Superintendent Richard Rosado provided News five with an update.


Supt. Richard Rosado, Officer Commanding, San Ignacio Police

“On Saturday, the fifth of April 2016, at about six a.m. acting upon information received of a chopping incident in Selena Village, San Ignacio police visited the said village where they saw the lifeless body of an elderly Hispanic male in an open lot behind the Iguana Creek Government School with multiple chopped wounds to the upper part of his body. He was later identified as one Edgar Alfonso Perdomo Aldana, sixty-three years old. Our initial investigation reveals that at about three a.m., Edgar Aldana and Ruben Manzon, both Guatemalan laborers of Selena Village were socializing within the compound of the Iguana Creek Government School. About fifty feet from the residence of the deceased, an altercation ensued between them and two other male individuals of the same village which subsequent results in the injuries caused to the deceased and severely injuring also Manzon. Manzon received multiple suspected chopped wounds to the upper part of his body. He was subsequently transported to the K.H.M.H. where he is hospitalized in a critical condition. At this moment we are still trying to ascertain the motive, but we do know that alcohol may have been a contributing factor. Also we are trying to locate two male individuals who may be able to assist us in our investigation—one is a Guatemalan and the other is Salvadoran.”

“Sir is it believed that these persons are still in the area or do you think that they have left that area?”


Supt. Richard Rosado

“No, we believe that they are still in the area but they are moving within the said village. They are not staying in one location.”
