Corozal, Belize (Mckoy’s News) – News of a missing 36-year-old Atlanta man and his 52-year-old girlfriend vacationing  in Belize, now found dead has been making waves across internationally as their bodies were found miles away from a bar in the polular tourist town of Corozal, which was said to be the last place the couple was seen.

Dead is Francesca Matus of Ontario Canada, 52, mother of two, and her American boyfriend Drew DeVoursney, 36. The bodies of the missing couple were discovered Monday evening, April 1 on a road leading to a sugar cane field in the Corozal district near the Mexican border, according to reporters. Both bodies of the couple had tape on their right wrists.

DeVoursney and Francesca Matus was reported missing one week ago.

It is reported that the day before, Matus’s white Isuzu SUV was found about nine miles away from Scotty’s Bar, where the pair were last seen last Tuesday night. Matus had a home in Corozal.

“They found them … they are dead,” friend Nancy Rifenbark reported.

Matus was supposed fly back to Canada on April 26 but she’d disappeared by the time her friend Joe Milholen came to pick her up to drive her to the airport.

“When I arrived there to pick her up, the gate was closed and the car was gone,” said Milhole

The couple, who’d been dating for several months, was remembered by friends on social media.

Brandon Barfield said he met his “best friend” DeVoursney while serving in Iraq in 2004 with the US Marines, according to a GoFundMe page.

“That’s the hardest part, it’s just that we don’t know anything, we don’t know where he is, or what’s going on,” Char DeVoursney, Drew DeVoursney’s mother told reporters, prior to the bodies being found.

She added that it was very unlike her son to not communicate where he is with his family.

David DeVoursney, the brother of Drew DeVoursney, told reporters ahead of Monday’s discovery that what happened to the couple “is a complete mystery.”

Global Affairs Canada, a department of the Canadian government, told reporters previously that it was aware of reports of a missing Canadian citizen in Belize, and that it was providing consular assistance to her family and was in contact with local authorities.

A U.S. State Department official said the department was aware of the reports as well but had no further comment.

An autopsy was performed today April 2, to rule out strangulation.

According to Police their bodies were found in an advanced state of decomposition. DeVoursney’s body was found on top of Matus’ body.
