Pop confesses to Machete Murder

A Punta Gorda man who has been accused of a recent murder is now in police custody. At five o’clock this morning, the suspect Florencio Pop boarded a James Bus in Bladen Village and went to the Independence Police Station where he handed himself in. During an interview with police, Pop confessed to murdering forty-five year old Felix Cucul. The incident happened between miles fifty-three and fifty-four on the Southern Highway near a small shed at the entrance to Linarez Farm. The deceased lived on the other side of the Highway in Bladen Village. According to reports, Felix, his sister Carmen and another friend identified as Dion Foreman where drinking early Monday morning at the shed.

Sometime after eight-thirty that morning they were joined by Feliciano Pop. Later in the night when the drinking resumed, Pop and Felix became involved in an argument.  Pop then chopped Felix on his neck causing his death. Police arrived after ten-thirty but Pop had fled the scene. But as we said, he turned himself in at the police station today.
