A retired US chiropractor has been murdered at his home in Belize. Larry Johnson, 68, was killed in an apparent home invasion at the Iguana Creek Resort, which he owned.
Unconfirmed reports suggest that a group of masked men attacked Johnson and covered him with gasoline.They then tied Johnson and an employee in a van, but left before setting it alight. The employee is expected to recover, but Johnson died after being rushed to hospital.
Johnson had moved to Belize a number of years ago, buying land about 60 miles from Belize City and developing the resort from scratch.
