Authorities on Ambergris Caye are investigating the circumstances surrounding the discovery of two bodies found in a shallow grave. They were found sometime around 11:40AM about 11 miles north of San Pedro Town on Wednesday, February 18th. Police have confirmed their identity as Benjamin Molina and Selvino Chi, both originally from the Corozal District. According to police the two were reported missing earlier today and police visited the area where they were last seen.

Investigators were led to a blood trail and upon searching the area, they came across a shallow grave. The grave was located about 150 feet away from the beach in a bushy area. While police have not released any further details, they believe it may be drug related. Police have not stated the condition of the bodies but said they were in a single grave about one and a half feet deep.

Autopsies Performed on Two Bodies Found in Shallow Grave, Ambergris Caye

Today, Thursday, February 19, 2015, the bodies of 23-year-old Benjamin Molina and 41-year-old Sylvin Chi are undergoing an autopsy as a forensics team arrived from Belize City to conduct the procedure on the bodies that were in a second stage of decomposition.

Due to bad weather conditions on Wednesday, February 18, only preliminary observations were conducted on site and the bodies were brought to town the following day. Police have confirmed that both men had a single gunshot wound to the head and were both buried in the same grave next to each other. After the post mortem examination, authorities will bury the bodies at the southern cemetery of Ambergris Caye. The families of the deceased have been contacted and will be present for the burial.

No leads on the murder of Sylvin Chi and Benjamin Molina
San Pedro Police have no leads in the double murder of 41-year-old Sylvin Chi and 23-year-old Benjamin Molina that occurred on Wednesday, February 18th, 11 miles north of San Pedro Town. The men’s bodies were found in a single grave about one and a half feet deep, about 50 yards from the beachside. Police found the grave by following what appeared to be remnants of blood in nearby bushes on the north side of the road. While police are not sure for the reason for the murder, they believe it to be drug related as the area is known to be trafficked by beach combers looking for drugs (playadores).
