Death Investigation into Francisco Bah’s Demise

Hilberto Romero

A postmortem examination is needed to assist police in determining what led to the death of Francisco Bah whose body was found along the Hummingbird Highway over the weekend. While there are reports to suggest that Bah died as a result of a vehicle hit and run there may have been other factors. Reports to News Five are that Bah made contact with his daughter Friday evening telling her he was put off a bus in Saint Margaret’s Village, and had been mugged by a group of people who took away his money.  His daughter reportedly told him to sleep in the bush until Saturday morning, but he said he would walk home. He never made it.

 

Sr. Supt. Hilberto Romero, Deputy Head, National Crime Investigation Branch

“On Saturday first day of May 2021, police visited an area between mile twenty five and twenty six on the Hummingbird Highway where they saw the motionless body of a male person with injuries to his body. The male person was identified as Francisco Bah, sixty years Belizean of that area. Investigation is that the previous day he went out and thereafter he was found in that area with the injuries. We are conducting an investigation to determine what transpired. A post-mortem will determine the cause of death.”
