By BBN Staff: Three years ago, on January 16, 2016, ABC 7 News Producer, Anne Swaney was strangled to death. Her body was found floating in the Mopan River in the Cayo District.
Authorities from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) were brought to Belize to investigate, however, the murder like so many countless others in Belize, remains unsolved.
In 2017, FBI agents told ABC7 News that they believe that the public in Belize may have information about the person who killed Swaney.
To date, however, no information has been forthcoming and the investigation has seemingly stalled despite the $20,000 reward being offered.
Swaney reportedly loved to vacation in Belize and had visited the country before. But one day after she was reported missing, her body was found floating in the Mopan River.
Authorities said that several resort employees were questioned and provided DNA.
However, to date, police have not charged anyone for Swaney’s murder.
