Police Investigate Human Remains Found in Blue Creek

On Tuesday evening, sometime after five p.m., Police were called out to a farm in the Blue Creek Village, Orange Walk District. There, they discovered the human remains of a man. Inspector Nicholas Palomo, who is the deputy commander of the Orange Walk Police, told News Five today that they have since contacted their counterparts in Mexico because no form of identification was found at the scene. What was found among the bones, however, was a pair of jeans with a unique belt, which police are hopeful can assist to identify the deceased. Inspector Palomo says it cannot be determined whether the person was murdered and that at this stage in the investigation, officers are sifting missing person reports from the area.

“Orange Walk Police visited Cuatro Leguas, Blue Creek Village where on the farm of a Mennonite resident of La Rosita, Blue Creek, some human remains were found. We found some skull and bones of the body. We also found a blue jeans [pants] with a belt of a unique type buckle. The farmer apparently was burning his field ad found the remains so he protected the remains and called for the police. At this point, we are comparing the body and other features of the remains with those of missing persons that have been reported around the area. We have also contacted our Mexican counterparts.”
