By BBN Staff: On Saturday we reported that a search team found human remains floating in the Belize River near Teakettle Village in Cayo.
The human remains found were 2 severed legs and were discovered in separate locations.
Up to now, authorities have not ascertained if the remains are that of Ontario Villager, Gerardo Miguel Vasquez, 17 who has been missing since September 25.
Yesterday Joseph Myvett, Assistant Commissioner of Police told the media that the human remains will require DNA testing in order to confirm if it is Vasquez’s legs.
The first leg was found in the Belize River near the Warrie Head Bridge in Teakettle and the second leg in the Chia Maya area on the Dream Valley Resort Road in Camalote.
BBN will continue to follow this story and will update readers when more information becomes available.
