The decomposing body of a woman was found hanging in a house in San Ignacio on Sunday morning. According to reports, a foul smell coming from an abandoned concrete building on Church street led to the discovery. An onsite post mortem was conducted due to the advanced state of decomposition. The woman was later identified as a woman who was reported missing earlier last week. She is 49 year-old Desiree Denise Gladden of Belize City. The post mortem conducted on the body concluded that cause of death was “mechanical asphyxia due to hanging”. Police are investigating.
