The theory about the business partner was never considered seriously by anyone, and most people saw it as smokescreen to cover up the inept local constabulary.
Here is a decent timeline, if the Mounties are sure the two mysterious Canadian women did it, I wonder why they haven't caught them?

No it was not that one. being the RCMP they had access to every thing canada, and it was just a single guy business partner that did it.
they connected the dots before and after the murder, and the guy ended up confessing...

Yeah, but that's like saying that there are also shrimpers and accountants in Margaritaville. For those of us on the border the beer is great, cold, and cheap.

Hey everyone, thanks for keeping this thread current. I'm finally getting "around" to my Belize trip and Mexico was a big concern of mine. I'll be forwarding this thread to my family as they share the same concerns as well.

Thanks all!

You'll be fine. Just don't ride after dark, and don't wear a military uniform with a rifle slung over your shoulder.

Oh, I also wanted to ask if I'd be able to survive with a street bike in MX and Belize? I've got a line on a cheapish (~$1000 EX500) and I was thinking that would be suitable.
