Screen_shot_2013-10-22_at_8.10.43_PMYesterday the badly decomposed body of 73 year old Michellin Nayard, a French retiree living in the village of Ranchito Corozal, was discovered by three of her neighbors. Nayard, who relocated to Belize several years ago, lived alone in this rented house. It was around 11:00 yesterday morning that neighbors became concerned after not seeing her for days, since October 8th to be exact. The fact that a bad stench was coming out of Nayard’s home also raised a red flag.


CTV3 News understands that neighbors entered Nayard’s home through the front door which was opened. Her body was found lying on the floor of her bedroom and we understand that the house was ransacked.

Yesterday when reporter Victor Castillo visited the scene, the suspicion was that Nayard could have been murdered since a suspicious blue van was seen leaving her yard on the afternoon of October 8th, the last time she was seen alive.

“Desde cuando usted conoce a la señora?”


Neighbor 


“Tiene como desde Septiembre del año pasado que venimos a vivir la he visto y siempre nos frecuenta por las niñas, cada que quiere algo nos escribe algo o a veces solo para saludarte escribe un papel y te lo llevaba a tu casa.”

“La señora padecía de alguna enfermedad?”


Neighbor 


“Si, la mitad de su cuerpo tenia stroke porque dice que ya le había dado stroke antes y no podía caminar bien. Todo el tiempo la veíamos solita en su casa.”

“Cuando fue la última vez que  la vio o platico con ella?”


Neighbor 


“Octubre el 8 en la tarde por ahí de las cuatro y media en que llego a mi casa porque estaba componiendo su bicicleta quería un rin que dice que el hermano iba componer. El día martes de la semana pasada ella dejaba todas sus luce de su casa encendidas y fue cuando yo le dije al sabes que esas luces de afuera no les están sirviendo a la viejita. Desde el martes las luces no están encendidos le digo o se le quemaron o no sirven pero desde el martes algo estaba pasando.”


But while neighbors strongly believe that Nayard was a victim of murder, Corozal Police say no signs of violence were found on her body and foul play is not suspected. So if she was not murdered what caused Nayard’s death? That is a question that will never be answered since the cause of death has been certified as unknown due to the body’s advance state of decomposition.


Nayard’s body was identified by her 59 year old son-in-law Lain Franklin.
