At 10:00 a.m. on June 4, 2017, police visited the Corozal pier on 1st Avenue, Corozal Town where the body of 44-year-old Acita Milsa Flores of Sarteneja Village, Corozal District was seen. Flores’s body was seen inside a skiff in an advance state of decomposition.

Investigations revealed that on June 1, Flores and eight other persons left Sarteneja in a white and blue skiff en route to Calderitas and Chetumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico to do some shopping. They departed on the same day and while at sea, a wave caused the boat to capsize. On June 2, a search party left Sarteneja and found eight survivors in front of Calderitas. Flores was not found.

The body of Flores was found floating in the sea about ½ mile north of Consejo Village, Corozal on June 4. The body was transported to the Corozal Town Hospital where a post mortem examination was conducted on the body certifying the cause of death as consistent with drowning.
