Screen_Shot_2015-09-25_at_7.45.58_PMTwo more murders have been registered in Corozal and police have launched an intensive investigation into the recent homicides. Corozal police report that they received information around ten forty five this morning from a fifty four year old man who went to the station to make the report. Police say the man said shots were fired in the San Comal Area located some three and a half miles northeast of Corozal Town. Police investigated and when they arrived at the area they found two men lying face up in a cane field, each with a gunshot wound to the right side of their heads. Officer Commanding the Corozal Police Formation, Superintendent Dennis Arnold, says the person who informed them of the shooting was reportedly with the men when they were ambushed.


Supt. Dennis Arnold - OC, Corozal Police


"At about 10:45am this morning, a 54 year old male person came to the police station and made a report of shots being fired in the San Roman area. That's 3 and a half miles north east of Corozal town. Police visited the area and upon arrival saw two male person lying face up in a cane field with what appears to be a gunshot wound to the right side of the head. Whilst the person came to make the complaint on the two deceased were scattering fertilizer in the cane field. Apparently someone came out of the bushes and fired shots at them. The two persons stayed there and the other person got away and he was the one who came to make the complaint."

"Sir from what you found on the scene, police some sort execution style maybe?"


Supt. Dennis Arnold - OC, Corozal Police


"Well the investigation is in the preliminary stage and I really don't want to speculate, but the two expended shells were found near both bodies."


Reporter


"And each body had just one bullet to the head?"


Supt. Dennis Arnold - OC, Corozal Police


"That's what we had observed, but the bodies are at the morgue awaiting a post mortem. Future checks by the doctor will reveal if there were more injuries sustained by the deceased."

Reporter


"Earlier you said that you ruled out robbery as a motive."


Supt. Dennis Arnold - OC, Corozal Police


"One of the deceased had a gold chain around his neck and he had his wallet with him."


Reporter


"Any possibilities we could get the names?"


Supt. Dennis Arnold - OC, Corozal Police


"Yes, one of the deceased name is Rogelio Rancharan, 42 years of Paraiso Village. The other is Vincente Cayuno, 58 years, laborer of San Adres village of the Corozal district."


Reporter


"Are they related?"


Supt. Dennis Arnold - OC, Corozal Police


"I really don't know if they are related. I believe that the complainant had made mention that they work for Mr. Rancharan."


So far, police have ruled out robbery and are treating the matter as a double homicide. The deceased have been identified as Rogelio Rancheran, a forty two year old resident of Paraiso Village and Victor Enrique Cayuno, a fifty eight year old of San Andres, Corozal. Cayuno reportedly worked for Rancheran. So far police have no suspects or a motive for the recent killings.
