Body Fished Out of Belize River is that of Jaime Martinez

Jaime Martinez

The body of a man was fished out of the Belize River near Blackman Eddy Village on New Year’s Day. A post-mortem examination revealed that the man had been strangled. His hands were tied behind his back and police believe that he was killed somewhere else before his body was dumped in the river. He was labeled as ‘John Doe’ because investigators have not been able to put an identity to the body. But information to News Five suggests that the man is from the Orange Walk District.  We are told that he was socializing at a wedding on December twenty-night 2018 in Buena Vista Village, Cayo, where he is known as ‘Dieiocho’. The bride recognized the clothing on the body and then sent News Five a photo of the deceased dressed in the red and black checkered shirt, a grey long pants and black and white tennis. Late this evening police confirmed that body which was fished out is that off twenty-three-year-old Jaime Martinez.
