Police are reporting that the body of 22 year old Jose Zelaya has been found in a cane field in the Corozal District.

The 22-year-old Jose Zelaya, a laborer of a Mahogany Extension address, was reported missing on Tuesday May 22, 2018. He was last seen in Corozal at a beach party on Monday May 21, 2018. On Wednesday May 23, 2018, preliminary reports received indicated that that a body was found in a cane field near the Calcutta School area.

Family members positively identified his body and his father, Jose Zelaya Sr. told news outlets that his son was no saint and that in the past he had been charged with a number of crimes including drug trafficking and gun charges. The younger Zelaya had reportedly moved to Calcutta to change his life and his father says it is likely that he was killed as a result of problems his other son has with persons in Corozal.
