“Ladyville Police, acting upon information, visited a road that is near the Haulover Bridge just before entering Belize City. About three hundred yards inside of the road police found suspected blood on the street. They also found a grey in color short pants, a pair of slippers and a blue in color cop. A farther distance, about four hundred meters police found a red in color Ford Ranger pickup, Belize City license plates, abandoned.

The last time he was seen alive was sometime yesterday by a family member in the Mahogany Street Extension Area. All what they have gather so far from the family is that he was socializing with some friends and he told them he was going to visit some workers in the Ladyville area. Specifically, by Lords Bank area. That was the last time they heard and saw him.”


Speaking off camera, a relative told News Five that they do not have any idea who would have Cosme dead or why. Investigators are looking for one person, a female who may have been in Cosme’s company when he was brutally killed. Cosme leaves behind three children.
