Honduran police say mutilated body belongs to missing journalist
By Freddy Cuevas, The Associated Press July 10, 2013 9:00 PM

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras - The charred and mutilated body of a man found on the bank of a lagoon in the northern city of San Pedro Sula is that of a missing journalist, Honduran authorities confirmed Wednesday.

Investigators identified Anibal Barrow's body through dental records and other forensic tests, Honduras' top prosecutor Roberto Ramirez said. Ramirez said he wouldn't discuss possible motives in the slaying to avoid harming the investigation.

The 62-year-old journalist had a popular daily morning news show called "Anibal and Nothing More" on Globo television in San Pedro Sula.

The body was found Tuesday in a shallow pit on the bank of the Siboney lagoon, about 12 miles (20 kilometres) south of San Pedro Sula. Buried nearby was a bank book and a credit card with Barrow's name, along with clothing and a belt that resembled what he was wearing the day he was kidnapped.
