Toddler Drowns in Silk Grass

A three-year-old toddler from Silk Grass, Stann Creek District, lost his life by drowning in a well in the village. The boy, Keon Martinez, lived with his grandmother, fifty-one-year-old Francine Augustine.  He had been playing on Monday afternoon between one and four o’clock and then disappeared.  His mother, twenty-four-year-old Chelsey Castillo reported that her son was missing at about five-thirty this morning. An hour later, the body of the young child was found floating in a well. Police say they observed no signs of injuries on Keon’s body.
