But the figures in the Belize District may go up – as San Pedro police are not quite sure what to make of a paralytic who was found hanging from a 12 foot beam in his bedroom this evening. Edbin Caballeros – who was left paralyzed after a construction accident years ago – was found dead in his room in the Boca Del Rio about an hour ago. Caballeros was locked in his room and police had to break in through a back door where they found him suspended from 2 beams. Because he is paralyzed police aren’t quite sure how he got up there.
Caballeros was a bicycle repair man. The investigation is in its early stages, too early to say if foul play is suspected. We’ll have more tomorrow.
