PUP Cayo Party Chairman Killed In A Home Invasion In Cayo, Belize

Peoples United Party (PUP) Cayo Central Chairman Steven Valencia was just killed this morning in a home invasion at his home on La Loma Luz Blvd in Santa Elena, Belize.

Police suspect that access was gained through a back door which was found broken. All they took was the $7 he had in his pocket, said his 6 year old daughter who witnessed the incident.

Does being a man and having honor means killing an innocent person? I want to believe that human life means something in Belize. Where is the highest values of integrity, caring, compassion, social justice, truth, personal peace and harmony gone, and what kind of depraved mind will kill a man in front of his 7 year old daughter?!

As a nation, we have lost all respect and regard for human life, and until our values are reversed in that respect, we can expect more horrendous tragedies as was witnessed in Santa Elena this morning. We have created in the last 30 years a culture based on our idolization and emulation of much of what's produced in North America. Materialism and lack of early parental supervision is a constant contributing factor to our lost moral soul as a nation. Need I say more?

My thoughts and prayers go to the family and friends of Mr. Steven Valencia.
