Guatemalan farmer killed in Belizean territory

According to a police report, the lifeless body of a Guatemalan national was discovered on Saturday afternoon in Belizean territory, in an area several miles north of Kaldin, Guatemala.  Forty seven year old Heber de Jesus Tzin Alvarado met his demise in a hail of gunfire, as an unknown assailant let loose a volley of bullets which mortally wounded the farmer.  With the assistance of B.D.F. personnel, police officers visited Valentine Camp, a location three kilometers north of the border community.  There they found the already decomposing corpse of Alvarado and, upon further inspection, observed that he had gunshot wounds to the left side of the ribcage, left leg, midsection of the back and left side of the head.  A few feet away from the body were two expended nine millimeter shells.  It is unclear what led to the fatal shooting but residents of Kaldin reported seeing Alvarado last Monday.  He was found dead three days later, at around eight-thirty on the morning of May first.  Police investigation continues.
