Mixtec influenced Maya mural, Santa Rita Corozal

One of the theories for the Classic maya 'collapse' is foreign invasion from people outside the Maya area. It is believed that the Toltecs from Central Mexico invaded the Maya area, taking over sites such as Seibal in the Peten, Guatemala.

There is also evidence of Toltec and other non-Maya Mexican styles and iconography at other sites such as Chichen Itza in Mexico, as well as murals that were discovered at Santa Rita in Corozal, Belize. Is this enough to say that these places were invaded? Or was it simply influence? What do you think?
