By Aaron Humes: Some two weeks after her body was found off the Hummingbird Highway, police believe they are closer than ever to solving the mystery of what happened to 19-year-old Imari Galvez of Belmopan and why – but there are still some key pieces of the puzzle to fit.
At this week’s briefing, Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police, explained why it has been tough going so far: “It is extremely difficult. There are certain things that we need to ascertain and we believe that the family does have answers or more answers to the questions that we are hoping to be answered. And so far I can say that the family is not as forthcoming as we want them to be. And, we believe that they’re withholding information that could assist the police in this matter. One, I can’t understand how – the way how their home is situated, I don’t understand how she would’ve left home and they don’t know. I don’t want to indict the family or to say anything that is going to cause more grief to them, but certainly, we believe that they are holding back information that could assist the police in that matter.”
Nonetheless, the Police say they have a single suspect (officially described as a “person of great interest”) they are focusing on. That person’s vehicle has been impounded based on surveillance video of the area and Imari’s personal cell phone has also been recovered and is being mined for evidence as well.
At least two men were detained for questioning in Imari’s murder both of them have since been released.
