    Deshaies was never charged in connection with the murders and it went below the radar. It seems that he has now been cleared as a suspect.

    In an online article published on Friday, People magazine revealed that a person living in the United States has been identified as “a person of interest” by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), which has taken interest in the matter because an American national was killed.

    Any man's death diminishes me,
    Because I am involved in mankind,
    Therefore, send not to know, for whom the bell tolls;
    It tolls for thee.

    These updates have only come through the State Department because neither Char Devoursney nor her family has had contact with Belizean investigators or with the FBI. When the matter was raised in the Police Media Group on Saturday, police officials simply ignored it.

    Pretty much the way the police in Belize deal with anything...they simply ignore it.

    The FBI is hunting a person of interest in the U.S. in the mysterious double murder of Francesca Matus and her American boyfriend in a Belize sugar cane field last May.
    In the last several weeks she said the FBI has developed a person of interest that lives in the U.S.
    Belize police have suspected the slayings may have been triggered by a real estate transaction gone awry.

    “I feel sure that if it’s this one person, that one person couldn’t have done the actual murders,” DeVoursney’s mom told the magazine. “One person could be assigning it or asking for it to be done…But if there’s one person that they’re looking at right now, it’s whoever put the hit on or however you want to say it, that’s my conclusion with this information.

    With this information, I wonder which one was the actual target. I believe they both owned property in Belize. Still wondering what is happening with their respective properties.

    I would guess it to be Drew, there was something went wrong with his planned dive shop on his half-share property. He had committed time and money training as a diver, but after only 4 months had given up and was moving back to the US. Something happened with that, most people would hang on longer. His family may have had suspicions from the start and that's why they've never discussed it with the media.

    The United States State Department issued a travel advisory for Belize on Wednesday, January 10th, warning American citizens to exercise caution when in the country. The advisory states that violent crime, such as sexual assault, armed robbery, and murder are common in Belize and local police lack the resources to respond effectively to serious criminal incidents. Despite this warning, hoteliers and other members of the tourism sector on Ambergris Caye continue to report good business. They regret the advisory, which puts a black eye on the country but they encourage visitors to continue visiting Belize and the island for a memorable getaway.
    The issuance of such negative advisory for Belize is raising speculations that it could be linked to unresolved murder cases involving American Nationals..
    The most recent murder of an American national was on December 16, 2017, after the discovery of the body of Kimberly Stephen in Placencia in southern Belize. Stephens was a regular visitor to Belize and owned a home in Maya Beach. Her body was found on a vacant lot off the Placencia road laying behind a grey SUV vehicle with a cell phone cord around her neck. To date, police have no suspects in the murder or have established a motive.
    The Belize Police Department who has been following both cases only commented that they are still working on them and hope to soon come up with some positive results

    Turns out the above posted link is unrelated to Francesca's murder.

    Bacchus is also wanted by cops in Belize for the brutal killing of Melvin Almendarez in May 2016.

    The San Pedro Sun has reported the 31-year-old local athlete was shot to death and then run over by a golf cart.
