Belizean Shot and Killed near Melchor

Wilber Gabriel Sanchez

Another Belizean lost his life, but across the western border.  The body of Wilber Gabriel Sanchez from the Belize side of Arenal was found by minors on Sunday at a farm in the area of Melchor de Mencos. Sanchez had wounds to his head believed to have been caused with the use of a firearm. His passport, as well as cash, was found at the scene where the body of the twenty-three-year-old was discovered. Investigations on the motive of the murder are ongoing and while it has not been confirmed, reports say the area is heavily trafficked by drug peddlers.
