One hour before Wilfred Peters III’s death, Hattieville police were dealing with a murder of their own. At the KHMH in Belize City, the body of businessman 42 year old Wei Tao Liu, 42, was observed with apparent injuries to the back of his head. He was at his business place, the foam factory located at Mile 12 1/2 George Price Highway with some workers around 1:00 a.m. today. That is when one of those workers allegedly hit Liu in the back of his head, then took the keys to his pickup truck, a white Toyota Tacoma, and drove off. Prominent businessman in the Chinese community Lee Mark Chang told us more.
Lee Mark Chang – Businessman:
I found out that one of my friends was killed last night by one of his employees. He’s on the run right now. I’ve contacted the Chairman and the Vice-Chairman who are out of the country. They have decided to put out a five thousand dollars reward for the arrest.
We understand that one man is being sought by police for questioning in the murder. The Chinese community is offering a $5000 reward for information leading to the suspect’s arrest and conviction.
