    Matthiew Klinck, 37, was found dead in Belize on Jan. 4, 2016. The Gatineau man is seen here in a Radio-Canada report about his work as a filmmaker.

    A Canadian filmmaker found stabbed to death outside his home in Belize Monday evening is being remembered as a multi-talented "ambassador" for his hometown of Gatineau, Que.

    Belize police told CBC News that Matthiew Klinck, 37, was found lying face-up about five-metres from his home, which "appeared ransacked." He had been stabbed 14 times in his lower neck and upper back, local police Supt. Andrew Ramirez told CBC News.

    There are no suspects at this time.

    After Hank and Mike, Klinck worked as a producer and cinematographer for the 2008 feature documentary Tuning In, which explored the psychic “phenomenon of channeling,” and put in work as a cinematographer and editor. In 2011, he decided to move to Belize, where he started his own production company, Make- Belize Films.

    The outfit has since produced a number of films – including Klinck’s feature Curse of the Xtabai – while Klinck also produced La isla Bonita, a Spanish soap opera.

    But it was Klinck’s work on an upcoming project that may be his greatest legacy: CBS’s new prime-time drama, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders. The hour-long show, starring Gary Sinise (CSI: NY) and Alana de la Garza (Law & Order) is a spinoff of the wildly popular series Criminal Minds, and is set to premiere March 2 on the American network.

    Klinck was head of the series’ Belize shooting unit, with the show following “an elite team of FBI agents solving cases regarding American citizens on international soil.”

    Other Make-Belize Films clients included Amazon Studios, which was producing its new series Mad Dogs, starring Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) and Steve Zahn (Dallas Buyers Club).

    Thirty-seven year old film-maker Matthiew Klinck is well known in Belize for the first-ever telenovela, La Isla Bonita, set in San Pedro as well as for the Curse of Ixtabai. But sometime over the weekend, in the peaceful community of Selena behind Spanish Lookout, the Canadian actor, cinematographer, producer and director was stabbed to death. The decomposed body of the Quebec native was found on Monday night in his yard, with fourteen stab wounds to the face, neck and upper body.
    Caretaker Edwin Paz and his family live here at the entrance of the only road which leads directly to the house where Klinck was killed. He claims that no vehicle could have passed there without his dogs raising the alarm, and the last person to go through the gate was Klinck himself.
    While Police say the home appeared to have been ransacked, we have also been told that Klinck’s high-tech cameras, equipment, phones and other electronics were untouched.

    I think they only came to kill him, that’s all. I don’t think they came to rob him because everything was there.”

    It sounds rather personal at first read. A great deal of rage. JMO

    Arrests!

    Asst.-Supt. Reymundo Reyes says a 19-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy were detained by police for questioning on Wednesday and were formally charged on Friday.

    He says both are charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder in relation with Klinck's death.

    Reyes identified the 19-year-old as a Belizean labourer named Brandon Anderson.

    The name of the 16-year-old, who is also Belizean, could not be provided due to his age.

    "The investigation revealed that both persons have knowledge or involvement in the murder of the young man," Reyes told The Canadian Press in an interview. "Also, during their detention, money was found in their possession, believed to be proceeds of the crime."

    Brandon Anderson

    The adult, Brandon Anderson, was an acquaintance who had known Klinck for about two years, Reyes said. Both accused are Belizean.

    Police also seized an amount of cash during the search of a house and believe that robbery was motive for the killing. Klinck was trying to buy land in Belize, but police can’t say if the land deal was motive for the killing.
