The first three quarters of this year has surely proven to be similar to that of last year when it comes to the murder statistic for the Corozal District. But while the murder rate for 2014 is similar to that of 2013 in Corozal, statistics also reveal that all murders committed so far for 2014, are registered in the rural areas and 60% of the murder cases have been solved.

“For 2013 we had five murders within the Corozal District including the death of Patricia but we had an incident in Sarteneja where a woman was charge in relation to that one, we also had an incident in Libertad where a male individual was charged, we had an incident in the Patchakan village outskirt of ChanChen where a gentleman had lost his life and two person were charged in relation to that, then we had Darwin Salazar whose body was found just in the outskirt of Chan Chen heading toward the Phillip Goldson Highway so as a recap those were the five murders so basically we solved 60% 3 out of 5 we solve, and we hope to get assistance from one family in relation to that two and the other two as I mentioned those were well planned as a result we do not have any suspects so to speak.  Governing 2014 what we got so far up to the 27th of October but we have a death of an American national at Sarteneja and the person of interest remain and the person is Dean Wilward, a US National who apparently mysteriously have disappeared the same time the other guy was fatally shot, then we also had an incident in Libertad again where a group of brother had apparently hit another individual by the name of Vernon, then we had the issue in Caledonia involving the Rosales’s and the Alcosers that is another issue, then we had the first one of the year unfortunate Mr. Nick Jones along with his son Brian Jones Senior and Junior that happened in Ranchito village and then we had the female unidentified that was found between the Chan Chen and Patchakan road.”

Of particular concern to the Corozal Police Department is the Yo Chen/Patchakan road as several dead bodies have been dumped in the area.

“Back to back we had issues in Chan Chen, Patchakan, Libertad and Sarteneja, look at it identical and the Chan Chen/Patchakan road seems to be a dumping ground for serious issues, the police continues to do it part with limited resources, dilapidated vehicle amongst others but we will do our mandated obligation to stop but I implore on the chairman and the chairlady to take up the challenge along with the police and let us stop some of these issues because some of these can be prevented because it links to the alcohol consumption and the abuse, if you left up to me, I believe one liquor premises to each village should suffice the market we don’t need to have brittles in these areas, the village is small whenever you have a bar with these so called waitresses you have a lot of destruction whilst it is entertaining it created more destruction at the end of the day.”

In order to reduce the crime rate in the Corozal District, the police department advices the public to report any illegal activity taking place in their area.
