My mom remembers Cobo as an undercover from England. She said the kids used to throw rocks at him bc they thought he was a bum.
Cobo use to be around Memorial Park, I remember he use to take his bath at the seashore and my mother once call the police after him.
Cobo was a spy and I remember him quite well with his pan asking for boil water to make his tea.
Cobo got picked up by Scotland Yard while I was still living in Belize. He was a handsome man with sharp features amd blue eyes.
