Screen_Shot_2014-10-28_at_7.44.05_PMToday makes exactly one year that 57 year old Canadian National Patricia Lynn Nichiporowich was brutally murdered at her home located in the Consejo Shores Area in Corozal Town. Since the incident, no one has been charged for her murder and all indications are that the case has gone cold as police have no leads. Today, Officer Commanding the Corozal Police Formation, Superintendent Andrew Ramirez, updated us on the case.

“Unfortunately I must apologies to the Corozal community that the Corozal formation has no other lead in relation to what we have already had in constantly being informed to the community, we still look forward in getting the opportunity to interview that male person who had left the day prior to Mrs. Patricias’ unfortunate demised and in the absence of that we could basically say that the investigation has been stalled somewhat but we must be mindful as well that these cases that were committed basically in a planned manner tend to take a little bit more longer than the normal haphazard type of killings and we would hope at least during my tenure here as the Commanding Officer that we get some sort of break truth to satisfy the family especially the family, whilst we have not had any other serious matter there in Consejo, remember a live lost is far too much for us.”

Ramirez says one of the main setbacks in the investigation is that the detective, who was in charge of the case, was transferred and the case reassigned.

“I must say also that the initial investigator has since been removed from the Corozal formation and I trust that the new investigator in the form of Fernando Valladarez Corporal who has been doing a very tremendous type of leadership investigative role here in Corozal can now access that file as taught over his man of investigation, your visit her is definite is a plus for me because now I can look forward to recover that file wherever it is, in whose possession it is and I am sure it is given to the new investigator where I will give some directive as to how I want that to manage and I will ask you if you can visit my office in governing this specific murder a visit within the next three weeks, then I will give you further information whether what the incoming investigator saw as omission or maybe he himself might look at it as a start, so that is in relation to that specific murder investigation.”

As reported, Nichiporowich’s body was found lying in a pool of blood on the living room floor. She had been stabbed more than eight times. At the scene of the crime police found a bloody knife on the couch inside the living room.

On the night of the incident neighbors reported hearing loud cries for help coming from Nichiporowich’s home. As they became concerned and approached the residence the cries stopped and as one of the neighbors made his way in to the house he discovered Nichiporowich’s dead body.


No one was seen entering or leaving the house. At the time of the incident Nichiporowich’s common-law-husband, David Dorenzo, had flown out to Miami, Florida. While he has made several accusations against Corozal Police, he is also wanted for questioning.
