By BBN Staff: Authorities have determined that Khris Gentle, the Belizean fisherman found dead over the weekend, drowned.
Police say that a post-mortem examination conducted on Monday certified that his cause of death was asphyxia due to inhalation of fluids consistent with drowning.
Gentle had left Belize City on Tuesday, January 28, headed for Barrister Caye along with a colleague. That man returned to the city on Wednesday and told authorities that Gentle was alive when he left.
After days without hearing from Gentle, his family reported him missing to police and his body was found floating near Barrister Caye shortly after 7:30 on Saturday morning.
