A post-mortem has been scheduled for murder victim, Cristobal Santos, 24, a bus conductor of San Antonio Road, Orange Walk Town.

Santos, the father of two young children was stabbed on Friday, March 9, at around 11:00p.m., on the San Antonio Road near Aquarius by the ex-boyfriend of one of his wife’s cousins.

According to the family, the cousin and the ex-boyfriend were talking on the street, when Santos, who was walking down the street heading home, met them.

Santos was allegedly intoxicated and cursed at the cousin and the ex-boyfriend. Santos then approached the two and reportedly threw a cup of rum he had in his hands at the ex-boyfriend and this was when a physical struggle ensued between both men.
The cousin tried to part the two, but was unsuccessful. Her ex-boyfriend stabbed him in the chest.

 The family said that Santos managed to reach home after being stabbed, but he collapsed by the door. He was then rushed to the Northern Regional Hospital where he underwent a surgery, but his condition worsened and was then transported to the Karl Husner Memorial Hospital, where he underwent two additional surgeries.

Unfortunately, on Monday, Santos succumbed to his injuries. We understand that both men were intoxicated when the incident occurred.

Police have detained the ex-boyfriend, who will be charged with murder.

Carlos was married to Diana Santos for five years.
