Did Pedro Pena Die of an Accidental Fall?

Joseph Myvett

There is a third investigation taking place in western Belize. Benque police are looking into the sudden death of Pedro Pena. The elderly man was found with a large cut wound to the back of the head by his nephew who was visiting with a grandmother on October fourth.  According to relatives, Pena was out drinking earlier in the night and later he fell inside his house.  While there are no signs of foul play on Pena’s body, an inquiry remains ongoing.

“Actually one Victor Cowo informed the police that he went to visit his grandmother on Church Hill Street in Benque Viejo on the fourth of October and whilst there he heard a noise coming from his uncle, one Pedro Pena who lives alone.  As a result, he went to make checks and saw his uncle getting up from off the ground with an apparent injury to the back of the head.  He was then taken to the San Ignacio Hospital and later transferred to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where over the weekend; I believe it was yesterday, he succumbed to his injuries.  That matter is under investigation.”



“Is there any indication of foul play at this moment?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“No, none.”
