The San Pedro Police Department is yet to arrest anyone for the murder of island footballer Melvin Almendarez as his family continues to mourn his death after his funeral services held on May 10, 2016.
Police are still no closer to making any arrest and while there was a Canadian national detained for questioning over Almendarez’s murder, that person has only been charged and fined for another offence, but is still only a person of interest in the case. Authorities remain optimistic as they continue to investigate the murder case.
The Canadian national continues to be one of the key persons of interest; however Belize court has released him with no travel restrictions. Meanwhile, San Pedro residents want answers as Almendarez was not known as a troublesome person. He was an avid football player and advocate of sports in the community and involved with the youth and sports.
