A group of commuters traveling by Water Taxi from San Pedro to Belize City was shaken up today after they spotted a body floating in the water.

The sighting which took place a couple of miles before the approach to the city seems to be of a deceased male set adrift.

We are told that the water taxi turned to make an inspection and reported the sighting to the Coast Guard which is expected to retrieve it.

No word yet on the identity of the deceased.

We asked Alejandro Cowo about the body found floating in the sea yesterday - which now appears to be an apparent murder.

As we told you last night - a water taxi returning from San Pedro was the first to come upon the body - and they called the police and Coast Guard.

When police got there they found that the deceased was an apparent murder victim:

Alejandro Cowo
"Yesterday at about 2pm, police received a video and also information of a body floating between St George's Caye and Coffee Caye which is about 2 and a half miles east of Belize City. Police along with Coast Guard proceeded to that location and it was until about 5pm that they discovered the body of a male person floating face down in the sea. The body was retrieved and police was able to see it had chop wounds to the head and to the right hand."

Courtney Menzies
"Has it been identified as yet?"

Alejandro Cowo
"We have managed to speak to some persons where one of them had mentioned a name but we are waiting for family members to confirm if that is indeed the person."

We have received reports of the identity of a missing man who is a possible victim - but, we'll wait for confirmation from police.
