By BBN Staff: Twenty three (23) year old Ostin Zavala is this weekend’s eight murder victim.

Family members confirmed to BBN a short while ago that their loved one died at the Southern Regional Hospital.

BBN had earlier reported that Zavala was socializing at Los Amigos Restaurant and Bar in Santa Cruz village in the Stann Creek district. He exited the bar just around midnight on Sunday to do an errand and while returning to the bar, he was stabbed by an assailant.

Zavala is actually a resident of Bella Vista in the Toledo District but moved to Santa Cruz just over a month ago.

This is the second murder that occurred in Santa Cruz this weekend, the first being the murder of 55 year old Roberto Deleon, which occurred late Friday night.

Zavala is Belize’s eight murder victim this weekend, making the weekend of 24 – 26th March, one of Belize’s most murderous weekend.
