Walter Dawson Death Still a Mystery

While the Belize City murder of Eaton Lamb is an open-and-shut case, it is a lot harder for investigators to crack the murder of Walter Dawson, whose body was found butchered on Marage Road around seven a.m. on Sunday. The fifty-seven-year-old resident of mile eleven on the Phillip Goldson Highway was chopped multiple times to the head and his neck almost severed. No one has been arrested for the crime which occurred in a remote area of Ladyville. Today, we spoke with Walter’s cousin, David Dawson, who says that he never complained of his life being threatened.
