Hattieville Man Who Went To Work In San Pedro Was Killed There

Tonight, San Pedro Police continue to investigate the murder of a hardworking father of 5 who was on the island to do construction work.

44 year-old Hattieville resident Samuel Dawson travelled to the island 2 weeks ago to work with other construction labourers on the North Ambergris Road. Viewers may remember that very much like the works in Belize City, this road in San Pedro is being cemented.

Dawson was in the company of his supervisor on Friday night after work, where they went to a restaurant in the San Pedrito area. The supervisor left him at the restaurant, and when he went back to check on Dawson at his island apartment, he found his body on the ground. The front door was ajar, and when the supervisor went into the house, he saw that Dawson had been stabbed twice in the neck.

Today, island police told us via phone what they have been able to establish so far:

Sgt. Lenancio Bol, Station Sergeant - San Pedro Police
"Police officers from San Pedro Town went to a residence in San Pedrito area where on the upstairs of a two story wooden structure, they found the lifeless body of Samuel Dawson, 44 years old, face down on the floor in the living room area of the house with what appears to be stab wounds to his neck. At this point in time after the police information there is no sign of forced entry to any part of the building."

Daniel Ortiz
"Is this house where they reside sir?"

Sgt. Lenancio Bol, Station Sergeant - San Pedro Police
"Right, he resides on the upper flat. He is down here on a construction job. He is one of the persons who is building the road from heading into the north part of San Pedro Town. The investigation shows that he lives in that place alone. He is originally from Hattieville Village."

Daniel Ortiz
"Are you able to tell us what you guys believe happen at that location which caused his death based on the evidence you've been able to find?"

Sgt. Lenancio Bol, Station Sergeant - San Pedro Police
"At this point in time since we are not seeing any force entry and also we couldn't locate his wallet, his personal documents etc., so we believe it's some form of robbery."

While police continue to try to solve his murder, Dawson's 5 children are now without a father, and a provider. Today, we caught up with his estranged wife, who told us that his murder is completely unexpected:

Stephanie Dawson, Estrange wife of deceased
"I just got the news Saturday morning that he was murdered in San Pedro. The children and I are taking it hard right now because right now life is for real and its really rough and it's on his worksite and I am asking whosoever saw and know about the murder to please come out and also his boss, I need him by my side because since it happened I haven't seen anyone or hear from anyone, I alone have to get down myself and get into things and know what will be the next procedure."

Daniel Ortiz
"So ma'am, like how you don't know much of the actual incident itself, just talk to us about Mr. Samuel's personality?"

Stephanie Dawson, Estrange wife of deceased
"Mr. Samuel was someone very friendly, he was someone always willing, caring, sharing - you didn't have to beg him. He was also a nice full grown family man. He will be sadly missed by his children, his mom and his family."

Daniel Ortiz
"Ma'am, was he someone to associate with any questionable individuals who may have put his life in danger or does this come as a shock to you?"

Stephanie Dawson, Estrange wife of deceased
"Well he has gotten robbed already, and I don't know if it could have been from off that robbery because he never told me about it. When he came to me the following week I told him about it and he says that he didn't want any problems because he had already gotten back everything. I don't know if it is because of that same robbery that happened so long ago. As far as I am concern I didn't know he was out in the caye because due to the problem with him and his common law, she didn't want he have any dealings with his wife and his children, so that was the problem there until when I got the call on Saturday morning early, that's I got to know that they found him dead."

Investigators are asking for anyone with information to come forward and assist them.
