A resident from Cotton Tree and father of four children was discovered floating at the center of  the flooded Belize River last Thursday. Isau Perez, 33, was found with stab wounds to the chest and throat area. A post-mortem examination has confirmed that he succumbed to these injuries. Police believe that he was thrown into the river after he was killed.

John Carr, the owner of the Banana Bank Resort, had loaned officers a boat and they had found the body about a mile downriver. Officers were lucky to find the body as the water current was taking it swiftly.

Isau Perez was no stranger to the law. Police are puzzled at what led to his demise.

Perez was last seen in the Riviera Area of Belmopan. He was seen with  some friends at a bar. Perez was reportedly murdered there and his body thrown into a creek tributary that feeds into the Belize River.
