Stephanie Grinage, Inspector, Deputy O.C. of Belmopan Police Station – “The investigation so far is showing that there was a fight amongst the individual and like I said, the investigation is on-going, so until we establish the exact motive then we will be able to bring further information in regards to Mr. Ramos’ death. The last time Mr. Ramos was seen was sometime in the month of June. We have not established the exact date as yet but it was sometime in June and there wasn’t any missing person report due to the fact that he was on a farm and it’s a secluded area, so the family did not know that he was missing.”
Police continue investigations.
