Brother of former Belize PM murdered
Ex Belizean leader George Price’s younger brother is found dead in his bathtub.
BELMOPAN, Belize, Monday April 18, 2011 – Police are investigating the murder of Samuel Price, the younger brother of former Prime Minister George Price.
The bludgeoned 84-year-old was found slouched over a bathtub on the second floor of his Tarpon Cove, Northern Highway residence, just outside Belize City, on Saturday.
Initial reports suggest there may have been a break-in at the house.
A statement issued by the Belize Police Department said it was Price’s nephew who discovered his body.
"Initial investigations reveal that at about 8:00 a.m. Mr. Clement Usher visited the residence as he usually does every Saturday, where he found Mr. Price dead. Signs of forced entry were observed on both a wooden and a metal door on the second floor entrance of the house,” the police release said.
Price is survived by his older broker, as well as two sisters – former government minister Jane usher and historian Meg Craig.
