Eduardo Samuel Caal Sub, a 39-year-old Guatemalan living in the Stann Creek Village of Hope Creek, was shot and killed on the Coastal Road, simply because of his kindness, police believe. So far, investigations are revealing that he stopped to render aid to several men, who turned out to be criminals on the run. Those men shot him and then stole his car to make an escape.

Dangriga police got information about the tragedy at around 1 p.m. on Monday afternoon, May 17. They visited one of the bridges on the Coastal road, and that’s where they saw a gold Ford Explorer flipped over, with its 4 wheels in the air. Beside it, they found the body of Eduardo Caal Sub; he had a single gunshot injury to the back of the head. His body was transported to the Southern Regional Hospital.

Police have been inquiring into the incident, and they have found out that he was heading down the Coastal Road to his brother when he found some men in distress because their vehicle had flipped over. As any compassionate individual would, he stopped and offered help, but the men were interested in taking his vehicle from him. He was shot, and the men made off with his Subaru car as soon as they could.

Apparently, these persons rented the gold Explorer, and they committed a robbery in Silk Grass. In their haste, the men flipped the vehicle, and Eduardo Caal Sub did not know that he was coming to the aid of criminals.  Police say that they have very good evidence that they are using to crack the case.

They already have the crashed vehicle, and Eduardo Caal Sub’s vehicle, which was found about 10 miles away from La Democracia. The cops say that they have 4 suspects that they are looking for.

Family members of Eduardo Caal Sub are particularly aggrieved by his murder because he was just a kind person trying to help out people he thought were in distress. His girlfriend said that he had no vices that she knew off, and he was a family man. He was the breadwinner of the household, and she is worried that she won’t be able to do it by herself. Caal Sub also made frequent trips across the border to his family in Guatemala.
