Screen_Shot_2019-07-09_at_7.58.56_PMThe entire Orange Walk Community tonight continues to reel over the vicious attack on twenty-three-year-old San Jose resident Yanira De La Rosa Novelo and her four-year-old son on Monday. The young mother of two was brutally stabbed as many as five times to the chest and her body abandoned in a cane field off the San Lorenzo Road here in Orange Walk Town. Her baby boy received an injury to the abdomen and later found wandering alone on the San Lorenzo Road by a passerby in the area who alerted authorities.


The mother and son as we have reported came to Orange walk Town on Monday morning to collect money from Western Union which was sent by the boy’s father who resides in the US. The money according to family members, was for a party to celebrate the boy’s fourth birthday which was on Monday. The young mother was reportedly robbed of her cash and jewelry.


While this heinous act continues to cause major concern among the Orange Walk community, authorities are yet to make an arrest in the case. Information tonight, is that Orange Walk Police are currently looking for three persons of interest in connection with Novelo’s killing.
