By Aaron Humes: Around 3:00 p.m. Saturday in Hopkins, Stann Creek District, police were alerted that 50-year-old American nurse Wendy Dardon was not responding to calls from her best friend.
A man who answered the phone gave differing accounts of her whereabouts, causing the friend to be suspicious and call the authorities.
At today’s briefing, ACP Joseph Myvette said responding police first detained a man described as Dardon’s common-law husband after speaking with him. When they returned to search the area, they discovered her body stuffed in a garbage bin in the yard. An injury, unspecified, was found to her chest area.
The common-law and Dardon were seen at a shop in the village and elsewhere the previous night, but the trail went cold after that.
Police have no record reported of any domestic violence or complaints between the two, and in fact, police are still working to link the caller to the person found at the residence. A check of the residence before the body was found did not show anything out of the ordinary.
The common-law, a Belizean, remains detained as police investigations continue.
