There was a sad ending on Monday for the loved ones of a man who had been missing since February third. Rafael Garrido’s remains were discovered in a shallow grave between miles fifty-one and fifty-two on the Hummingbird Highway.   While the family now has closure, they are asking looking for answers…and justice for Rafael.

“He was seen in the area between Orange Walk and Ladyville area so we didn’t know where to search. So we were just preparing for the worst and just now I just saw something that I have never seen in my life and it was really heartbreaking. And it made me realise how many more parents will have to cry, how much more tears would have to be shed before we start to see justice ina Belize.”
