Police are Seeking 1 Person for Macario Tzib’s Murder

Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett also gave updates on the two recent murders out west. On Monday, investigators from the San Ignacio Police Formation were called out to a wooden house off Thornley Street where the badly decomposing body of forty-seven-year-old Macario Tzib was discovered lying face up in his bed. He was stabbed multiple times to the chest and his throat was slit. An autopsy confirmed that he had been dead since Saturday, which coincided with the last time he was seen alive; sometime around eleven a.m. on April sixth. While a motive has still not been established for the homicide, which is believed to be a crime of passion, police are looking for a person.
