Victor Vargas, 37, a resident of Unitedville, Cayo, died shortly after he received a stab wound to the throat early Saturday morning.
Vargas’ killer fled and remains at large after the incident which took place around 3 a.m. at the corner of Albert Street in Unitedville.
Vargas, who tried to run to a nearby house to get help, collapsed and bled to death before anyone could assist him.
According to police, the motive for the killing was a conflict that has been going on for several weeks between Vargas and his suspected killer, a 19-year-old man from the same village.
Vargas had come under attack previously but he managed to escape serious injury. He is the father of seven children.
