Jalacte Resident Murdered near the Dump Site Area

Two murders were recorded in less than seventy-two hours in Toledo District. On Saturday morning, as Punta Gorda Police responded to a call of a burglary near the dump site just outside of town, they discovered the mutilated body of a Jalacte resident under a bus shed.  Macario Ical was chopped to the hands and face at a bus stop on the San Antonio Road, a short distance from its junction with the Southern Highway. So who wanted the twenty-five-year-old dead and why? At a press brief today, Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett said that a motive has not been established.

“On Saturday last sometime around one a.m., Punta Gorda police responded to an information of an apparent burglary in the area of the PG San Antonio Road known as dump area where under a bus shed, police observed the body of a male person, later identified as Macario Ical, twenty-five years of a Jalacte Village address in the Toledo District, with severe injuries and apparently dead. The scene was processed and the body was removed to the Punta Gorda Hospital where it awaits a post-mortem. At this point in time, police are seeking three suspects who we believe can assist in this investigation.”



“Now that the body has been identified, is there any motive for this murder?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“At this point in time, no, we have not been able to establish a motive.”
