By BBN Staff: Police say that Orange Walk Town resident, 57-year-old Steve Gilbert Patten was on his way home early Christmas morning when he was ambushed and stabbed to death.
At a media briefing today, Director of Communications for the Office of the Commissioner of Police, Assistant Superintendent Fitzroy Yearwood explained that Patten’s body was discovered about 8:45 a.m. on San Martin Street facing San Lorenzo Road. Initial investigations revealed that he was socializing with relatives earlier in the day and left to return to his home around 2:30 a.m.
Yearwood said that it is believed his attacker lay-waited him and inflicted the fatal stab wounds.

He added that investigators are conducting interviews and are hopeful they will receive information that will result in someone being charged.
