He made his living on San Pedro Town as a well known disc jockey, but his life was cut short on Christmas morning. Hubert Flashy, better known as Heavy D, had made his life in La Isla Bonita as of six years ago, and anxiously awaited the birth of his first child.

   Based on information received, police officers visited Dr. Emmanuel Caldera’s clinic sometime around 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, December 25th, where on arrival Hubert Flashy, 25, of a DFC Subdivision address was seen suffering from a single stab wound on the left side of his chest. This wound proved to be fatal.

   Police then carried out an investigation which revealed that Flashy and another Hispanic male person were involved in a fight whereby Flashy was fatally stabbed. Dr. Caldera pronounced him dead on arrival at the clinic as he succumbed to his injury. The investigation led to detention of one Miguel Angel Orrego, 44, Guatemalan and Belizean National of an Airstrip address.

   After extensively interviewing Orrego, police officers were led to the location where he dumped the clothes he had used the night in question. The clothes, which had a number of blood stains, were thrown away in close proximity to his residence.
