Body of Mexican found floating near Ambergris

Police are following up the discovery of a body found floating in waters near Bacalar Chico at the Belize-Mexico border. According to police, the deceased has been identified as Preciliano Ramos, a Mexican national, who was working in Sarteneja Village. On Saturday authorities from San Pedro Town visited the Bacalar Chico area where they observed Ramos’ badly decomposed corpse. It had several stab wounds to the chest, legs and back of the head. A medical team has been unable to certify the cause of death. According to police, because of the location of the body, they strongly suspect that Ramos was killed across the border and drifted south into Belizean waters.
