Steven Diaz is Charged for OW Baker’s Murder

Twenty-two-year-old Steven Diaz is tonight in police custody after handing in himself in the presence of an attorney.  On Tuesday, we reported that the Orange Walk resident was wanted in connection with the murder of nineteen-year-old Joshua Ku which occurred in the predawn hours of February eleventh.  Ku, a baker of Orange Walk Town, was at an establishment on Saturday night when he reportedly left in the company of several individuals, including Diaz.  It was not until the following night that family and friends grew concerned when Ku did not return home from the nightclub.  A search party was immediately dispatched in an attempt to find him alive.  It was not until Monday afternoon that Ku’s lifeless body was found near a dirt road in the vicinity of Rhaburn Ridge.  He had been fatally stabbed and dumped in a secluded area.  Steven Diaz has since been arrested and charged for Ku’s murder.
