Teenager Executed on Farm outside Benque

Oscar Niles Obando

The fourth murder victim is an eighteen-year-old recent graduate of Mopan Technical High School, who was also found dead this morning on a farm in Benque Viejo Del Carmen. Police were called out to an isolated area on the Puga Farm where the body of Oscar Obando was discovered with a single gunshot to the chest. Police have not been able to gather much information so far as to the motive behind the murder of the teen, but say that robbery has been ruled out.

“Police visited the location this morning where they observed a male person with an apparent gunshot wound to the chest. The person’s identity was confirmed to be that of Oscar Niles Obando, an eighteen-year-old student of Old Bank Street, Benque Viejo Del Carmen. The area where the incident took place is between the Guatemala and the Belizean border; it’s an isolated area on the Puga Farm, which is between miles twenty-five and twenty-six of the Benque Road. So I cannot tell you if the motive is robbery or anything because we found the person’s belongings with him, so we are trying to see what else we can get from the scene and from the relatives as to what happened out there.”
