Late this evening Orange Walk Police were called out to Muffles Street. Upon their arrival in the area police observed the dead body of male person lying face up on the right hand side of road. Residents of the area told CTV3 News that the man was seen lying on the side of the road since morning but they thought he was asleep. This evening however, when one neighbor went to check on the individual they noticed that red ants were all over the body.
When police arrived at the scene they confirmed that the man was dead. Up to news time the identity of the individual was still unknown. Police we understand do not suspect foul play. Investigations however, continue. The body now awaits a post mortem examination at the Northern Regional Hospital.
