has been linked by the Quintana Roo Attorney General’s office to the double murder of Arena del Rocío Palacios Valdés, a pregnant woman, and her husband, Octavio Augusto Góngora Jiménez.

Three other men have been arrested and a warrant has been issued for the arrest of another three. Casanova was detained in 2013 when the Mexican Naval in a sting operation busted a house in Chetumal.

There they found forty-five kilos of crystal meth ready for sale and distribution. Among the group of men was another Belizean: Ermelindo Vázquez. The detailed newspaper report claims that both men appeared to enjoy police protection in Belize years ago.

In the 90’s both were accused separately; Casanova for drug related offenses and Vasquez was linked to a confiscated drug plane loaded with cocaine.

But, says the report, he was never convicted because the evidence suddenly went missing.
