Excessive alcohol drinking is believed to have led to the sudden death of two men. The incidents are isolated; one occurred in Cayo and the other in Toledo. On Christmas Day, 31 year old Giovanni August, who resides along the George Price Highway, visited his mother’s home in San Ignacio, asking for money. She gave him the money after which he left and had not been seen or heard from since. But three days later, sometime around 6 p.m., August’s body was found floating in a river in the village of Santa Familia. A post mortem was conducted on his body, where it was learned that he died as a result of Bronchi aspiration and alcoholic liver disease.
