Trail cooling in Corozal slaughterhouse murder

Mark Anthony Clarke, an I.T. technician, was stabbed as many as seventy-one times and dumped near a slaughterhouse along the San Jomal Road in the Corozal District.  His body was later discovered on Saturday afternoon.  The brutal slaying of the forty-one-year-old resulted in the detention of several persons, all of whom have been released due to a lack of evidence.  According to Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett, a police investigation remains open.
