    Toronto man fatally shot in front of home in Belize, leaving family 'devastated'
    Martinez said Bochnia had gotten out of his vehicle to open the gate when a man with a rag over his face emerged from behind the bushes, shooting Bochnia in the abdomen.

    He died in hospital.

    Martinez says Bochnia's wife — 27-year-old Jeshanah Maritza-Zetina — and the children were not injured and the attacker fled.
    Martinez could not say how long Bochnia had lived in Belize, adding that the investigation is in its early stages.

    Bochnia's death comes just five months after another Ontario resident was murdered in the Central American country.

    In a statement to CBC News, Global Affairs Canada said it is in contact with local authorities to gather more information and is ready to provide consular assistance to the family.

    "Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the Canadian citizen who passed away in Belize," spokesperson Brianne Maxwell said.

    So as per this article, Gabriel Bochnia (and Paul Haberling) were OWNERS of G.P. Construction Company Ltd.

    This piece of equipment is what is known as a bullet catcher. It was donated to the Corozal Police Formation by Paul Haberling and Gabriel Bochnia, owners of G.P. Construction Company Limited. Today as the equipment was tested, we found out more about its purpose.
    John Deshaies worked in construction - wonder for what company?

    Media reports out of the Central American country named John Deshaies, 54, as the prime suspect in the shocking slayings.

    But a family friend said investigators are making a scapegoat out of the construction company owner.

    Interesting.

    Cops believe the gunman was waiting for him and that the Canadian man was targeted. It’s believed he knew his killer, who local media reports say is a former employee known as Polo who’d just been released from prison.

    Bochnia had been living in Belize for nearly a decade and had no known enemies, neighbours told Channel 5. It’s believed the suspected triggerman is in custody along with an American national.
    Wonder who the "American national" was?

    CRIME HUNTER: Will cops catch Belize killer?
    For the second time in less than six months, a Canadian is making the long trip home from Belize in a casket.

    On Wednesday, Gabriel Bochnia, 38, who grew up in Toronto, was shot to death outside his home in Chula Vista area of Corozal.
    In late April, Toronto real estate speculator and part-time resident of Belize, Francesca Matus, 52, of Keswick, was strangled to death with her former U.S. Marine boyfriend.

    The crime-ravaged country’s keystone cops have gotten precisely nowhere with Matus’ slaying.


    And I fear “big-hearted” Bochnia’s murder will slip between the cracks, as well.

    Why? Money.
    There are just 9,000 people in Corozal in the northern end of the country where Bochnia and Matus both lived.

    Everyone knows everyone.
    But no one believes for one second that Bochnia and Matus were murdered in a drugged-out frenzy by some desperate junkie trolling for a fix.
    And the Sun source revealed Bochnia had a connection to the much-loved Matus.

    One of the men in custody — a man named “Dale” — is drinking buddies with Don Richardson. Richardson — an elderly local potentate — lived across from Matus and was the one who fingered her tenant, a fellow Canadian, in the slayings.
    He was quickly sprung because he loved the dead woman like a sister and not a soul doubted him — including Matus’ family.
    Another source said the two Americans are tighter-than-this with local cops and any investigations, arrests or convictions are stopped dead in their tracks.

    If that’s true, the senseless slayings of Gabriel Bochnia, Francesca Matus and her beau Drew DeVoursney will go ice cold.

I'd like to see this journalist similarly publish unverified allegations about people in Toronto, based on phone conversations with unidentified enemies, I'm sure that would be a big boost to his career.

    I posted on Gabriel's thread but there has been an arrest for his murder. The guy they arrested they described as a "construction worker"...

    This story indicates the arrested man was recently released from prison and was known to his victim. Also, the MO was very different and crude/careless, unlike the carefully planned and concealed killing of Francesca and Drew.
    So I don't personally see a connection. http://edition.channel5belize.com/archives/153871

    Belize cops hold tongue in Toronto woman's murder
    In an exclusive interview with the Toronto Sun, Matus’ family say police won’t accept — or return — their phone calls, and offer only a shrug on who was behind the slayings that carried all the earmarks of a professional hit.

    But with a sickeningly personal touch.

    “We’re totally in the dark. That’s the issue,” the family member — who asked not to be identified — told the Sun. “No one gets back to you. Our feeling is that the cops know who did this, a lot of people do, but they’re afraid.”
    In addition, the family scoffs at any notion that her tenant, Barrie-native John Deshaies was involved.
    In the end, money trumps nearly everything in Belize, the relative added.

    “People can be bought very easily down there. They’ll do anything for money,” the relative said, adding that the conviction rate in Belize is a paltry 3%.
    As for Francesca Matus’ financial dealings, York Regional Police sorted her Canadian matters for the family in three hours.

    In Belize, it’s almost seven months — and counting.
    “People there (the population is just 9,000) know what happened, but they’re terrified to talk.” He added: “But the same name keeps coming up.”
