March 12,2019 730pm: A Guatemalan police spokesman said today there was no “official theory” on what had happened to Miss Shaw and the country’s Public Prosecution Service would now lead the ongoing investigation. It is the Ministerio Publico which carries out and leads the investigation “Information on the causes of death and information on what was found on the young woman’s body, comes from another institution called INACIF, which carries out the autopsy. “From this point on the PNC simply supports the Ministerio Publico in the investigation it is carrying out.” An official police source, quizzed about local paper reports pointing to Catherine having been raped and murdered which have also been repeated on national Guatemalan TV, insisted media outlets that had carried the reports had not consulted force HQ. Miss Shaw’s family have pleaded for restraint over local reports of an alleged leaked police document which they claim stated she might have been raped and murdered. A statement from the Lucie Blackman Trust on behalf of the former yoga teacher said: “She was very much a nature lover and adored sunrises, so it seems quite conceivable that she went up the mountain to greet the sunrise, shedding clothing as she went, and due to her lack of intake of food and fluid may have passed out or fallen, causing the wounds to her body.
