By Benjamin Flowers: Police are seeking two known suspects in the murder investigation of 24-year-old Ramon Espat.
Espat was shot around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, September 3, in front of an establishment in Orange Walk Town.
Sr. Superintendent Hilberto Romero, Deputy Commander of the National Crimes Investigation Branch, said that a lone gunman approached Espat and shot him several times to the body before making his escape. Espat was pronounced dead later at the Northern Regional Hospital.
“We are working on a motive at this time. We are seeking these two persons who we believe can help us with this investigation,” Romero said.
He added that police are reviewing the background of the suspects as well as Espat’s to see if there is a connection between this murder and any previous incidents.
According to police, Espat was standing in front of an establishment on Aurora Street, Orange Walk, around 12:30 a.m. when a man of unknown description walked past him as if heading to Guadalupe Street, then proceeded to shoot him and flee the scene.
