2019 Spring Equinox Event at Marco Gonzalez
Many people are not aware that an archaeological site is on Ambergris Caye. While there are plenty on the "island", Marco Gonzales stands out. Settled as early as the Preclassic, the site was still occupied well into the Postclassic.

Mason Lawyer Points At Prison
It was a full day in the Belmopan Supreme Court today as the murder trial of Danny Mason and his 4 co-accused continued. The court session set-up was quite the same with Justice Antionette Moore presiding over today's session and DPP Cheryl-Lynn Vidal prosecuting. The only new information coming out of today's session is that Attorney Rachel Montejo will join Attorney Herbert Panton as the other defense attorney. Now, 4 witnesses testified. It started around 11:00 with one witness and continued into the afternoon session with 3 more. Courtney Weatherburne was in Belmopan and gives us an overview of today's proceedings.
"Its 3:00 pm and we are here at the Belmopan Supreme court. It's day 4 in the murder trial of Danny Mason and his 4 alleged accomplices. Now over the past couple days, including today's session we have heard from about 10 prosecution witnesses who have shed light on a number of key details including the kidnapping of Pastors David Dodd and Pastor Wright, and the discovery of Pastor Llewellyn Lucas's head in the pan of Mason's truck".
PUP’s Marconi Got Mauled
Tonight, the PUP's standard bearer for Belize Rural North, Marconi Leal can hardly speak - after he was beaten down on Saturday evening in his home village of Sandhill. It all started with a few choice insults from a UDP political rival. That rival is Damion Garbutt - who had once challenged and lost to Leal in a contest for village council chairman.
Well, on Saturday, at Fa's Supermarket in the village, Garbutt reportedly threw a few words at Leal, who responded the way a public figure never should: with anger and with blows. After that, Garbutt punched him to the ground, and other men jumped in. Leal had to be taken to the hospital, badly beaten and missing a few teeth.
Cops Found 50 Pounds of Cocaine Lying on the Beach
Turning to news out of San Pedro Town, police made a major cocaine bust.
They found 52 pounds of cocaine just lying on the beach on Northern Ambergris Caye - an area famous for its wet drops and cocaine-related killings.
Yesterday afternoon, San Pedro Police and officers of the Gang Suppression Unit went to an area 2 miles north of Boca Del Rio Park, where they found a white crocus sack on the beach with 24 packages inside. Those packages, seen here, were opened, and the officers found they suspect to be cocaine.
Police Commissioner Chester Williams discussed the discovery with the media at press briefing today, and he told us that samples have been sent for testing to confirm it the substance is cocaine:
The Mystery of the Los Lagos Skull
And from that suspected cocaine discovery, we move on to last week's discovery of a human skull in the Los Lagos Community.
As we told you, on Friday, some of the employees from Bacab were clearing an area close to the eco park that had just been burnt due to a bush fire. They came across the skull, and they called police to turn it over.
At today's press briefing, police said that it a post-mortem is pending, and they are hoping for some answers, which will inform them on what leads to pursue:
No other body parts were found in this area.
Cops Don’t Charge Alleged Killer
Toledo resident, Luis Cabrera Jr's alleged killer is out on bail tonight. He is Alexander Ruiz. Ruiz was only charged in relation to the fatal accident that happened after the bar stabbing. Ruiz's passenger, William Garcia was killed in that collision. Police could not say why Ruiz hasn't been charged for Cabrera's murder. Here is more from today's press briefing:
The Rage Of The Ruiz Family
Now Cabrera's family is demanding an explanation from police as to why Ruiz wasn't charged with their loved one's murder. Cabrera's sister expressed the family's discontent today.
Senior Citizen Killed In Traffic Accident
A 63 year old father of 3 was run over and killed last night. The victim is Pablo Hernandez. Hernandez was riding to his Forest Drive home when the driver of this Honda CR-V hit him and drove off, leaving Hernandez for dead at the entrance of Caribbean Chicken. We spoke to an employee of the establishment as well as Hernandez's cousin about this hit and run.
Voice of Caribbean Chicken Employee:
"Well basically what my boss says that he heard a slam on the roadside and he never think it was something like an accident as someone getting hit but he says after a while he saw the police coming around by the entrance and they were surprised to know it was a fatal accident, that someone loss his life and that is basically it, so he said he heard the slam, saw the vehicle driving off hard and that was it."
Will Police Charge Driver?
Police told us what they have so far on this fatal accident. Here is more.
ACP Joseph Myvette - Head, NCIB
"Last night, sometime around 7 p.m., Belmopan Police was called to an area on the Hummingbird Highway inside Belmopan City limits, where upon arrival, they observed the apparent lifeless body of a Hispanic male, later identified as Pablo Hernandez, 63 years Guatemalan of a Las Flores address. Initial investigation reveal that Mr. Hernandez was riding his bicycle northbound, when he was apparently knocked down by a vehicle from behind. The vehicle did not stopped, and [it] was later intercepted by Hattieville police. So, that vehicle is now impounded, and 1 person is in custody pending this investigation."
Bartender Killed In Toledo Hit and Run
There has been another traffic fatality on the Southern Highway near Punta Gorda. This time the victim is a 20 year old. Adriano Choco from Hicatee Village had just left a bar when he was run over by a hit and run drive.r The owner of the bar says he was there, but he wasn't drinking. Here's why she told PGTV:..
"Was this young man visiting your bar?"
Rosaria Pop - Bar Owner, 3 IN 1:
"Well, he visited my bar earlier but he sat with my mother in law, talking with my little brother in law sitting in the kitchen. He didn't have any alcohol."
Police Look For Hit and Run Driver
So while he was not a regular patron at the bar - what do police have on this hit and run driver? Here's what they told us today:
ACP Joseph Myvette - Head, NCIB:
"On Saturday sometime around 11 PM, Punta Gorda police receive information of a fatal traffic accident in Hicatee Village in the Toledo district on the Southern Highway where upon arrival, police observed the lifeless body of a male person later identified as Adriano Choco, 21 years of Hicatee Village. The investigation has shown that Choco has just exited a bar in the area and was walking on the highway when he was knocked down...."
Eligio Family Being Hunted?
2 weeks ago, we told you about the frightening home invasion in Ladyville which left 35 year-old Jeffrey Eligio, injured with a gunshot to the stomach. Masked gunmen barged into his home, shot him, and they then threatened his common-law wife, and 3 of their children.
It was an unexplained incident, and his common-law wife told us then that they don't know why he was targeted specifically.
Well, on last Thursday night, the Eligio Family came under fire from gunmen, and this time, Eligio's 70 year-old mother, was the one got injured.
Who Was “Vato”?
Orange Walk police have finally identified that man from that northern town who was found injured by chop wounds.
As we reported, at around 9 p.m., residents of Guyana Street saw a man they know only as "Vato" walking with a shirt over his head. He suddenly collapsed, and so, they called for police.
Well, cops told us today, that the victim is actually a resident from Caledonia Village:
ACP Joseph Myvette - Head, NCIB:
"Last time we spoke about John Doe not being identified. He has since been identified as Samuel Sanches, 33 of Caledonia Village address and police has since arrested and charge Jose Franco Rivera, 55 years Salvadorian national with the crime of dangerous harm."
Pupa Curly Brings The Beat Back
Pupa Curly has been a trailblazer in Belizean reggae and dancehall music since the late 80's. When his song, "Crack is a Killa" burst unto the scene in 1988, it was a sensation. And more the 30 years later, Curly is still producing music that's conscious with a danceable, contemporary flavour.
The Belizean American based in LA told us what - after almost a decade away from music, he had to come back with a new single, called "Money" which was released on Friday:
The new single "Money" is available on youtube and all streaming platforms.
Vivisecting Visciannie: Bar Assoc. Will Have Public Forum

But that came out from March first. And three weeks later, the Bar Association will be hosting a public forum to present that Legal Opinion. In a release sent out today it states that forum is "to discuss the legal issues raised in the Opinion with a view to furthering the national education campaign on the territorial dispute.

House of Horrors?
It didn't make it into a very packed newscast on Friday night, but at the start of Friday's House Meeting, the Speaker of the House had a cautionary tale about security of the parliament. We've always taken it for granted but she said the other day - they had a scare which has forced them to implement new procedures:
The new press passes - only policy will go into effect at the next house meeting, which is the Budget Debate on March 25th and 26th.
A 62 year-old man from Duck Run Village, located near Spanish Lookout in the Cayo District, drowned this weekend under unexplained circumstances.
Alvaro Molina went out with his brother on Friday night to look for his nephew who was fishing in the River that passes near their village. But, instead, they the brothers started drinking, and for a brief moment, Molina slipped away - never to be seen alive again. Sometime later, they found his lifeless body in the river.
Here's more from police:
ACP Joseph Myvette - Head, NCIB:
"On Friday night, sometime after 11 p.m., San Ignacio Police was called to the Belize River in the Duck Run area, in an area known as "Mennonite Beach"...
Beggars Turned Macheteros
And in other news out of the Cayo District, police are looking for 2 men who chopped a man simply because they begged him for money, and he refused them.
It happened on Saturday morning, when 28 year Levi Gonzalez was socializing in the Riviera area of Belmopan. He told police that they begged him, and as soon as he refused, one of them pulled out a machete and chopped him for no reason.
Police discussed the case today:
From Putrid “Pisshouse” to Civil Cell Block
At the end of January, Police Corporal Darrell Tutsi Usher made national headlines when he posted pictures of the abominable conditions at the eastern division police station's cell block. It's the country's largest police station - and inside was nothing nice! Well, less than two months later, those repulsive conditions are just a fast fading memory. That's because the police senior command put in major work and money to refurbish the place known as pisshouse. As we found out today, you can't call it that anymore:
Trouble Man Chops on Caye Caulker
And finally tonight, there was one more chopping, but this one happened on the island of Caye Caulker on Thursday evening.
The Brothers, Lee and Julian Rosado, was allegedly chopped by a man who has reportedly caused a lot of trouble for Caye Caulker residents. Police told us today that this man is facing multiple charges, including attempted murder for his latest dispute with the brothers:
