murderOn Friday CTV-3 broke the news about the body found bleeding on the side of the road in Xaibe, and at that time Corozal Police had still not been able to determine whether 38 year old Mauricio Cawich Jr., a resident of Xaibe Village, was murdered or if he was the victim of a hit and run.

Today when we spoke to Officer Commanding the Corozal Police Formation Superintendent Gualberto Garcia, however, he told us that Police ARE treating the case as murder, but will wait on the results of the post-mortem examination to support that suspicion.

On Friday morning at around 1:20 Corozal Police found Cawichs lifeless body lying face-down on the side of the main road that runs within the village of Xaibe with several cut wounds to the head and forehead and a bruise on the left elbow.

The last time Cawich was seen alive was at around 11:00 on Thursday night while he was drinking within the village.
