Skeletal Remains Discovered Behind Los Lagos; Are They for Hubert Richards?

The remains of an elderly man were found today near the Los Lagos community, Ladyville. It has been determined so far that the bones are that of an elderly man, but there are still many unanswered questions and his identity has not been confirmed. Not far away, police also found clothing items and a denture. Here is what Duane Moody found out today.

Three weeks after the skull of a male person was discovered in the outskirts of Ladyville, on Thursday afternoon, the skeletal remains of a man were discovered in an area behind the Los Lagos Community. The images show that the bones were scattered within a twenty-five diameter and were located about thirty feet away from where the human skull was discovered back on March fifteenth. Scenes of Crime and CIB personnel were called out to the area after which Doctor Blanco certified the bones were that of a human being. A further search of the area led to the discovery of a human denture, a pair of black silk sock and a gray t-shirt with blue marking on the front. It is confirmed that the skeletal remains are that of an elderly man. News Five has been told that the bones and clothes were collected as evidence and will be forwarded to the lab for testing.

Hubert Richards

News Five has been reliably informed that the remains could be those of eighty-three-year-old Hubert Richards since his family confirms that he used dentures. As we said, the lower part of those was found in the area and will be matched against the upper dentures which family members have at home. Richards went missing on November sixteenth, 2017 after he left his Queen Helmet home in the Coral Grove area of Belize City. At the time surveillance footage showed the elderly man in Ladyville. There were also sightings of him in the Los Lagos area and later in the Guinea Grass area, but he was never located.
