Daniel Rios is Mortally Wounded Near Rhaburn Ridge

ASP Fitzroy Yearwood

A mother is tonight desperately trying to find answers following the death of her son over the extended holiday weekend.  Maria Rios, a resident of Rhaburn Ridge, Belize District, was expecting a visit from her son, Daniel, who had called sometime earlier on Saturday to inform that he was traveling by bus en route to community. When she saw him several hours later, he was on the side of the Philip Goldson Highway suffering from severe head and body injuries. He succumb to those injuries shortly thereafter. Police are investigating the incident and are as yet unable to determine how he got hurt.

“Upon arrival, police found a male person, later identified as Daniel Rios, a Belizean construction worker.  He was seen with head and body injuries on the side of the road.  His mother, Maria, relayed to the police that her son called earlier that he was going to visit them at Rhaburn Ridge and he was about to board a bus.  At six o’clock p.m., she received a call from her son that he was on the highway hurt.  How he was hurt, he didn’t relay to his mother but we are certain that police are trying to establish what may have taken place out there because I know that you’re familiar with this area.  This was the area some years ago where PC Hall was bludgeoned on that same stretch near Rhaburn Ridge.  We are not saying that the incidents are related but the houses out there are situated a little distance from each other.  So we have officers out there campaigning to see if we can establish what may have taken place out there to cause his death.”
