    what is the black substance, was this self inflicted or otherwise. Belize police are always quick to jump on the suicide theory because then there is no case to investigate.. what about people who have life insurance.

    “syringe and a dark substance on his inner left elbow” What kind of substance was that? Is there any suspect in the action. Was some one alerted of his action? I don’t believe the news story?
