Canadian-American couple strangled to death

Posted: Tuesday, May 2, 2017. 12:45 p.m. CST.

By BBN Staff: Canadian Francesca Matus, 52, and American Drew Thomas De Voursey, 36, who were reported missing last week, were strangled to death, according to a post-mortem conducted on the bodies this morning.

Police reported that the two bodies were found in a cane field in Chan Chen village, Corozal. The clothes on the bodies matched the description of the clothes the couple wore when they were last seen by friends.

Police also reported that Matus’ body was found underneath De Voursey’s and that their wrists were taped up.

The bodies were found in an advanced state of decomposition so the post-mortem was conducted on-site. The police department says it is collaborating with the US Embassy and the Canadian Consulate as the investigation continues.

The couple was first reported missing last Wednesday by American national, Joseph Milholen. He went to Matus’ house in Serenity Sands Consejo Road, Corozal because he was supposed to drive her to the airport that day. When he reached, however, he saw no sign of the couple and could not reach them on their cell phones. He noticed that Matus’ white Isuzu Rodeo was not in the driveway.

The Rodeo was recovered by police on Sunday in Paraiso village, Corozal.

    I have not heard from my brother in over 11 years
    Perhaps Belize and other countries need to check peoples background and what they are leaving behind before they let them in to live that dream.
