“Dangriga Police were called to an area between miles eight and nine on the Stann Creek Valley Road where they observed the apparent lifeless body of Israel Argueta, sixty-four-year-old, on the side of the highway when travelling north. A short distance away from him was a damaged bicycle.

Police are investigating this matter at this time and are seeking the public’s assistance of anyone who has any information that can assist us in this investigation to come forward as so far we have been unable to locate the vehicle or get a proper description of the vehicle or the driver.”
