“On the sixth of March, around 12:47 p.m., police visited the Corozal Community Hospital  where they saw Ermin Eloy Basto, fifty-four years [old] suffering from chop wounds. Initial investigation revealed that Bastro was involved in an argument in Xaibe Village and this was with one Eulogio Nah Jr. who caused his injuries. I know that investigators have Nah detained and Basto is still in the hospital receiving treatment, listed in a stable condition.”
