Narrative:
A burnt plane was found by Guatemalan law enforcement officers in San Luis,Petén. It had been used for transporting drugs.

The aircraft type and colour scheme on tail bear similarities with a PA-23-250 TG-ROD (with minor differences in the colour scheme and different placement of the registration).
Possibly a fake registration was applied to this airframe.
