Police are investigating the murder of a Canadian national which took place on Tuesday, October 29th, in Consejo Village, Corozal District.

At about 7 p.m. on Tuesday, police visited a two storey concrete house in the Consejo Shores area after neighbours made reports about screaming coming from the upper flat of the residence. According to police, when they arrived the house was properly secured. In order to gain entry into the premises, police used a ladder to climb unto the verandah of the second floor. Inside the living room of the house they saw the body of 57-year old Patricia Lynn Nichiporowich lying face down in a pool of blood. Officers observed multiple stab wounds to her neck and body. One blood stained eight inch blade stainless steel knife was found on the sofa in the living room. The body was transported to the Corozal Community Hospital where Nichiporowich was pronounced dead at 9:55 p.m.

According to police, there was no sign of forced entry into the structure. Police did; however, notice foot prints on the ground beneath stairs of the house. Police believe the culprit(s) gained entry by climbing over the verandah on the upper flat of the building. No arrest has been announced in this murder as yet.
