By Dalila Ical: Police have identified the body found on Wednesday across the Lamanai lagoon in Indian Church Village as 51 year old Guido Urbina, an Honduran national who lived in the village.
Police investigations so far have indicated that Urbina was fatally shot to the forehead.
He was last seen alive on Saturday February 20th in a bar in the same village in the company of three other persons. Authorities are now looking for the three individuals whom they believe can assist in solving the homicide.
Urbina’s decomposing body was found by a birdwatcher. His hands and feet were bound and his body was split in two, which authorities say may have been caused by wild animals, probably crocodiles.
An on-site post-mortem examination, conducted on the body of Urbina late Wednesday evening, concluded that Urbina died of trauma to the head caused by a single gunshot to the head.
