Corozal Police have received the post mortem examination results for Mauricio Cawich. Cawich was found dead lying face down on the side of the Xaibe road on Friday at a little after one in the morning. Several cut wounds were observed on the body, head and left elbow.
Immediately after the discovery Police were uncertain whether the wounds had been sustained as the result of a hit and run accident, but over the weekend the official Police release called it a murder although authorities still awaited the results of the examination. Today the autopsy has determined that Mauricio Cawich died from bronchial assertion due to a massive head injury as a consequence of a blunt instrument.
Several persons were detained for questioning but were released due to a lack of evidence. Police are continuing their investigations into the murder.
