By Hugh O’Brien: A shopkeeper from the Honey Camp area in the Orange Walk district was murdered last night.

According to Orange Walk police they visited a grocery shop in the Honey Camp area just after 9:00 last night and found the motionless body of a male person lying face down in a pool of blood inside a bungalow cement house. The motionless body was identified as that of 48 year-old shopkeeper Angel Valentin Gongora.

Upon closer observation, Gongora’s body was found to have five (5) apparent stab wounds, one to the center of his back, one to the center of his waist area, one to the lower left rib cage, one to his left arm and one to the right side of his chest.

Initial Investigations reveal a customer from the area arrived to buy at the shop around 7:30 pm and observed that the door was slightly open. Upon making further checks, he noticed that Gongora was inside the shop but was seen lying down in a pool of blood. The customer then called the police and informed them of the situation.

After canvassing the crime scene police transported the body of Angel Valentin Gongora to the Northern Regional Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival. Gongora’s body now lies at the Northern Regional Hospital Morgue awaiting a Post Mortem Examination.
