Man Stabbed to Death in Hope Creek

Two separate murders were also recorded in the South; one in Santa Cruz Village on the Southern Highway and the other just outside of Dangriga in the village of Hope Creek. On Friday evening, police responded to a report at the Southern Regional Hospital where a man had been stabbed and was being rushed into the operating theatre for treatment. Peter Pau, a resident of Hope Creek Village, did not survive the injury. News Five’s Duane Moody reports.

What triggered the fatal stabbing of Peter Pau remains a mystery for his friends who say that he was a person who had no beef with anyone. In fact, according to Pau’s landlord, they were socialising earlier that day before Pau left with a friend.
