By BBN Staff: BBN has learned that Saul Jeovani Ortiz, 25, the man from San Ignacio Town that went missing this week was charged for murder in 2015.
Ortiz was charged in April of 2015 along with two others for the murder of Coast Guard Officer, Aurelio Montero Jr of Bullet Tree Falls, Cayo District.
