On Thursday, August 24, 2017, police were able to confirm that the body of the man who an eyewitness claims he saw being beaten and thrown overboard in the sea by someone has been found. He was identified as a teenager from San Lorenzo, Orange Walk,18-year-old Crevaun Cardinez.

The body of Cardinez was recovered from the shallow waters in front of the Sir Barry Bowen Municipal Airstrip in Belize City, not too far from where he was seen being thrown from out of a vessel. He was brutally attacked aboard a vessel where he was stabbed and thrown into the water.

Cardinez recently made the news after he was accused of committing an aggravated assault upon a Belize City man on June 30, 2017. According to police, the gunman in the Taylor’s Alley incident was Cardinez. He was arraigned before Magistrate Carlon Mendoza on August 10, 2017 for the offense of aggravated assault with a firearm upon Bernard Wade and escaping lawful custody. Wade claims that Cardinez opened fire on him but missed. Due to the nature of the offense, he was remanded to the Belize Central Prison.

Five days after that arraignment, Cardinez was taken back to court on a removal warrant to be arraigned on two firearm related offenses. He escaped and was later found on Lacroix Boulevard in possession of a firearm. He was again arraigned on firearm offense on August 15, 2017 before acting Chief Magistrate Sharon Fraser.

Thus far in the case of Cardinez’s murder, no one has been detained but police are seeking two male persons that can be of assistance in the investigation.
