“Matthew Smith’s death linked to two previous altercations,” Police say

Posted: Thursday, September 22, 2022. 2:51 pm CST.

By Benjamin Flowers: Twenty-nine-year-old Matthew Smith was stabbed to death in San Ignacio Town yesterday, and police say they believe the motive is connected to two prior altercations with his killer.

Head of Communications for the Office of the Commissioner of Police, Assistant Superintendent Fitzroy Yearwood, said that Smith was found with multiple stab wounds to the body shortly after 7:00 p.m. and was pronounced dead at the San Ignacio Community Hospital not long after.

Investigations revealed that Smith and another man had been in a fight at the Macal River Park earlier that day.

“This fight is a two-pronged incident because these gentlemen were involved in another fight on the 20th of September that was being held at a venue in San Ignacio also,” Yearwood said.

Police have detained several people that were involved in both fights, including another man injured in the brawl. The men are detained for questioning, but no one has been officially charged with an offense in connection with the incident.
