San Pedro Police has detained 35-year-old Ricardo Mendoza for the murder of 57-year-old Belizean construction worker Gaspar Vargas of the San Mateo Area in San Pedro Town. Vargas was stabbed once to his stomach on Monday, April 30th, around 2PM allegedly by Mendoza, his son-in-law, as they socialized at home. Vargas was rushed to the Dr. Otto Rodriguez San Pedro Polyclinic II, where he was immediately treated but later succumbed to his injuries.

The Vargas family is devastated and believe that their loved one was unnecessarily murdered. According to a few neighbors, Vargas had a drinking habit, and on a few occasions he would get into arguments with Mendoza and others, but things never escalated. According to one of the deceasedís relatives, who wishes to remain anonymous, when she left for work earlier in the day, Vargas was working, but hours later she received the bad news while at her job. She also stated that this was not the first time Mendoza had attacked Vargas, as in a previous occasion Vargas had allegedly been badly beaten by his son-in-law.

Killed His Father In Law On San Pedro

Tonight there is another murder to report from San Pedro - the second in four days, and the third this month.

While the others are suspected to have been drug related - this one seems to be a family rivalry.

Around 2:00 this afternoon, 35 year old Jose Ricardo Mendoza got into an argument with his 57 year old father in law Gaspar Vargas at his home in San Mateo. Police say the men were socializing in the yard - which suggests that alcohol was involved - when they got into an argument about what is being called "an old misunderstanding"

When things got heated Mendoza stabbed his father in law in the abdomen. His family rushed him to the polyclinic but he died while receiving emergency care.

Mendoza is a chef and police did not manage to detain him until after 5:00 this evening.
