“Police received information of a stabbing on Racecourse Street.  So they responded about 7:15 p.m. last night where they found in front of Heidi’s Shop, the motionless body of Miguel Zaiden and a motorcycle was next to him.  We believe that it is his motorbike.  The body appeared to have several head and body injuries and he was in a pool of blood.  Miguel Zaiden was rushed to the KHMH but he was pronounced dead by a medical officer.  Initial investigation revealed that about seven p.m., he was socializing with other persons on Racecourse Street when he was approached by a male person and an argument ensued.  The suspect then inflicted the stab wounds and left the scene.  Zaiden attempted to leave the scene on his motorbike but fell to the ground.  We do have the suspect detained and we hope to file charges against him soon.”
