He's 41-year-old Lee Lopez, a resident of Heron Street, and while he was socializing with his usual friends in his yard, he got into some sort of argument with one of them. Things escalated quickly, and Lopez was killed - reportedly stabbed straight to the heart with a pint bottle.

Our colleagues from CTV3 News spoke with the Principal and the Ministry of Agriculture employee about the incident.

Disaster Response For Public Officers
Many say you can never really be fully prepared for a sudden tragic event or disaster but that does not mean you shouldn't do all you possibly can to protect yourself and others.

The Barrier Reef & Northern Islands
Belize has many wonders, but one in particular is our national treasure, our Great Barrier Reef, which spans 180 miles, protecting our coast line. It is the largest coral reef in this hemisphere; Australia being the other.
Small populations and careful management has preserved this treasure. Here you can find more than 400 species of fish, and a myriad of marine environments.
The Northern Islands are the most frequented and populated islands in the country. Caye Caulker and San Pedro are not just water sport havens but also bustling towns where socializing is a favorite pastime. Enjoy the island life on the main cayes or caye hop and explore the dozens of white sand beaches like Goff’s Caye, Sargent’s Caye and other smaller most often unpopulated islands.

Strange disease threatens Caribbean coral reef
The breathtaking reds, yellows and purples of the Mesoamerican Reef have been turning sickly white, leading researchers on a desperate hunt to understand and fight the mysterious disease killing the Caribbean's corals.
In a little over a year, the Mexican Caribbean has lost more than 30 percent of its corals to a little-understood illness called SCTLD, or stony coral tissue loss disease, which causes them to calcify and die.
Experts warn the disease could kill a large part of the Mesoamerican Reef, a magnificent arc of more than 1,000 kilometers of coral shared by Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Honduras.
SCTLD has put the region in a bind: it could potentially devastate the vital tourism industry around the reef, the second-largest in the world after Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
Fifteen years of ocelot tracking is revealing new information about this elusive cat
It is night in a Central American pine forest, and an ocelot is following a game trail. The predatory wild cat, approximately twice the size of a housecat, is hoping to catch the scent of a rabbit or hear the rustle of mice in the undergrowth.
Along the way, the ocelot passes between two remotely triggered infrared cameras set at about knee-height off the ground. The cameras flash simultaneously, startling the animal and momentarily illuminating the forest. The resulting photographs capture the unique markings of the elusive cat: solid black bands and spots over tawny yellow fur, a pale underbelly, and a bright white spot on each rounded ear.
Moments like these have been a regular occurrence in the pine forest and broadleaf jungles of Belize, where Professor Marcella Kelly, of the College of Natural Resources and Environment, has spent the last 15 years tracking the movements of predatory ocelots and jaguars using remote sensor cameras.
