Vehicle of Missing Couple Found in Belize Sugarcane Field

Vehicle of Missing Couple Found in Belize Sugarcane Field

Police in Belize confirm a Canadian woman and her American boyfriend were murdered shortly before she was scheduled to leave the Central American country where they were wintering.

According to Belize Police sources a postmortem examination was conducted today Tuesday at the Northern Regional Hospital where the pathologist certified their deaths as due to strangulation. The bodies were found near Chan Chen village.

"Matus is described as 5′ 1" tall with shoulder-length brown hair and a slim build, and was last seen wearing white, denim short trousers and a white long-sleeve blouse, according to local media reports.

"We wish all the best to Francesca's family for her safe and speedy return".

The foreign couple was last seen the night before on April 25 at Scotty's Bar in Corozal Town. "She is such a lovely person", Logan said, adding the Canadian Consulate is involved in the disappearance.

"I'm not able to really do anything, kind of just sit and think and cry and that's all I'm capable of at the moment", she said through tears.

Discovery of the couple's bodies came a day after Matus' missing vehicle, a white 1998 Isuzu Rodeo was found in the nearby village of Paraiso on Sunday.

A 36-year-old Marine Corps veteran, DeVoursney moved to Belize in December but would be flying to Georgia in May.

She was suppose to return to Toronto the following day, media reports have said, and was reported missing when a friend went to pick her up to take her to the airport. He reportedly said the last time he saw the couple was Thursday at a bar in Corozal Town.

Matus was the mother of two, but she acted and looked younger than her age, resembling someone who was maybe 35 years old rather than 52.

"Then 9/11 happened and he went straight into the marines", she said. Matus apparently met her boyfriend in Belize during the winter of 2016, and they'd been dating for several months. Matus' white Izuzu Rodeo was located by police Sunday 15 miles away with no trace of the couple. "He was supposed to come home next week..." His mom stated that after leaving the service, her son overcame the "post traumatic stress disorder", he had suffered from.

"It's been a complete nightmare", said David DeVoursney, who is hoping to fly to Belize this week to help search for his brother. The couple had been missing for a week when their bodies were discovered.
