“Sometime around twelve fifty eight a.m. police were called out to Legends Night Club on the Bullet Tree road where they found a female identified as Ima Landero lying in a pool of blood in one of the female bathroom. Initial investigation ev3elaed that sometime around twelve fifty a.m. a female approached the security guard and told her that she saw blood coming from the female bathroom. When the security approached the female bathroom, he found a male person stabbing the female. That person then began stabbing himself and then made attempts to stab the security officer. The security guard managed to subdue him and handcuff him until the police arrived. When the police arrived on the scene they found the assailant identified as Augustine Gonzalez, forty four year old bus driver of Santa Familia Village. Police transported Ima’s body to the San Ignacio Community hospital, where she was pronounced dead. I know that Mr. Gonzalez was treated and released by the medical officer at the hospital. He was released into police custody and police arrested and charged him on Sunday the twenty sixth for the murder of Ms. Landero.”

“Police know if they have a history of abuse?”

“I cannot answer that, because I didn’t ask for any history, being that this was there and then and he was found on the scene, because this was there and then and he was found on the scene.”
