There is no doubt that the man most wanted here in the north is 37 year old Manuel Castillo accused of orchestrating the murder of former Senator and Mayor of Orange Walk Town Ramon Cervantes Sr., whose badly decomposed body was found buried in a shallow grave on July 5th at a farm located on the Honey Camp Road.


While Castillo, along with three other persons have been charged for Cervantes’ murder, tonight he remains on the run and has even managed to make it on Interpol’s most wanted list.

On Friday, when news broke out that four men who were in neighboring Mexico were handed over to Belizean Authorities, rumors spread like wild fire that one of them was Manuel Castillo. According to Officer Commanding the Corozal Police Formation, Andrew Ramirez, the Corozal Police Department was flooded with calls made by concerned residents requesting information on Castillo’s detention. 


Today, to put an end to those rumors, Ramirez set the record straight as he confirmed that Castillo remains on the run.
