Unconfirmed but reliable reports are that a man was murdered before midnight last night in Belize City. Police have acknowledged that a shooting happened on Antelope Street Extension in the Collet area, but reliable reports are that the man died at the scene and was taken to the KHMH morgue in the pan of a police pickup. The incident happened sometime around 11:00 p.m., just a few hundred yards from where a police intelligence bus had been stationed for the past two months to quell bloodshed and drug activity in the area.

Police investigate fires in Stann Creek, Orange Walk
Police are investigating two fires, both of which they suspect were cases of arson. In the first instance in Dangriga, police say they were summoned to mile 25 on the Southern Highway sometime around 7:25 on Saturday night, where they observed a wooden and thatch house measuring 20 by20 feet totally destroyed by fire. According to the owner, Innocenta Bol, 24, sometime around 6:20 p.m., she was going to a shop when she met a man she knew, who told her something, after which he ran towards her house. Bol said that moments later, she saw flames and smoke coming from the direction of her house. The fire destroyed all of Bolís personal belongings.

Visiting San Pedro Ambergris Caye
If you are escaping the winter this year, This island San Pedro Ambergris Caye is the best to be. I have seen many activities such as Paddle boarding, Sailing, Parasailing, Jet skying, Boat ride's around town, Tourists riding with bicycle's and more. Local's enjoyed the Island weather and came out to swim with families and kids. To be honest, the weather was so hot and humid, if you do not have golf cart it will make your trip shorter for your adventure's when travelling to San Pedro Ambergris Caye. Do not offer any ride's to strangers or even talk to strangers. Especially, to tourists who come here and have a lot off confidents of the Island. If you are going out, leave personal equipment's at your hotels. Including your golf cart keys, camera (you can bring it out if you are not going to the club), cellphones, and anything that's personal. I hope you have a very blessed New Year's 2018 in Belize.

This Brave Scientist Grew a Maggot Inside His Skin And We Can't Stop Watching
When Piotr Naskrecki travelled to Belize in 2014, he found himself riddled with tiny parasites that had taken up residence under the surface of his skin. Called human botflies (Dermatobia hominis), these tiny parasites had made their way inside him via fresh mozzie bites. Botfly eggs are so small, they're actually laid on top of a mosquito, and when the mosquito is surrounded by a person's body heat as they feed, this causes the eggs to drop off and onto the flesh. Once inside, the botfly larvae will grow fat inside the soft, protective layer of their new host. When he realised what was going on, Naskrecki and did what anyone would do when faced with a parasitic insect baby - he carefully extracted it using a suction venom extractor.
