On Monday, October 16, 2017 at 10:45 p.m., Belize City Police visited the KHMH where they saw 82-year-old Ricardo Benito Vasquez of Bagdad Street with an abrasion to his right cheek and right hand and a cut wound to the back of his head.

Investigations revealed that earlier that night, Vasquez was walking on Water Lane heading towards Bagdad Street when he was approached by a male person who inflicted the injuries and made good his escape. The reports are that Vasquez was at a game shop and after he left to head home, he was assaulted and left to die in a nearby drain.

Vasquez was admitted to the ICU in a critical condition but succumbed to injuries four days later on Friday, October 20. His family is awaiting the results of a post mortem examination and police are investigating.
