BELMOPAN, Belmopan Jan. 16, CMC – The police have held a Guatemalan man in connection with the murder of a US citizen , 39-year-old Anne Elizabeth McComb, a journalist from Chicago .

McComb, who was the executive producer of online operations at ABC7 in Chicago was on vacation when she was killed.
The police say the journalist was reported missing late Thursday by the owner of the Nabitunich Resort , who became concerned when she did not return from an outing after several hours.

The police say they visited the area and found her belongings unattended on a deck.

An initial search of the area with canine units yielded no clues until Friday morning when her body was seen floating in the Mopan river.

A post-mortem examination determined that she died of asphyxia by compression of the neck (manual strangulation), as well as blunt force traumatic injuries to the head and neck region.

The Guatemalan national who was fishing in the area was taken into police custody, but he is not considered a prime suspect.
