Xaibe killer still on the loose

Story Picture
No news is bad news in the case of Jose Coyoc as police are still on the hunt for the thirty-two year old, wanted for murder and attempted rape. Coyoc, a resident of Xaibe Village in the Corozal District, is accused of breaking into the home of forty-three year old Apolonio Tun on Wednesday and trying to rape his fourteen-year-old daughter. When Tun came to his daughter’s aid, Coyoc shot him in the chest, fatally wounding the father of twelve. Coyoc is considered armed and dangerous, and Belizean authorities are working with their Mexican counterparts in case he has fled across the border.
