Burrell Boom baby drowns in backyard

A baby has died, this time in the village of Burrell Boom in the Belize district. Details are still sketchy, but according to the cops, sixteen month old Myrna Burgess was at home, ostensibly in the care of a fourteen year old relative. The baby’s body was later found in a pool of water in the backyard. Late this afternoon officers were still on the scene, and a post mortem has been scheduled to establish a cause of death.
