By Benjamin Flowers: In the wake of Belize Defence Force soldier 23-year-old Micah Miguel tragically taking her life at the end of July, an investigation was launched into allegations of sexual assault and bullying against her; allegations that Police Commissioner Chester Williams says will be hard to prove.

Williams said today that the investigation is ongoing and that police started by making absolutely sure that it was a case of suicide as opposed to Miguel being a victim of foul play. He said that all evidence at this time confirms that Miguel took her own life, but of anyone being held accountable for the mental state that drove her to do so would be a “very slim” case.

“It is going to be difficult to pursue that angle because if there was any such unwarranted sexual encounter against her, she is no longer alive, who is going to give the story? She is not around to do that so it would be extremely difficult,” Williams said.

BDF Acting Chief of Staff Lieutenant Colonel Jermaine Burns says that the Force will conduct its own investigation, and confirmed that Miguel gave names of those who she alleges sexually assaulted her and were involved in the harassment before she died.
