Body of Murdered Spanish Businessman Found in Dominican Republic
( – The body of a 57 year old missing Spanish businessman who lived in the eastern Dominican Republic has been found in an advanced state of decomposition, a police spokesman said.

Antonio Crespo’s remains were found Saturday around 5:00 p.m. and his family was notified, the police spokesman said, without disclosing where the body was discovered.

The businessman’s body, which will be sent back to Spain in the next few days, was found hours after police announced the arrests of three suspects, including a Spanish woman who confessed to participating in the murder.

Crespo was last seen alive on March 29, relatives in Spain said.

Among the suspects in the killing are the 39-year-old Spanish citizen, identified only as Maria Isabel F.G., and Dominicans Oswaldy B.M.T. and Yonson R.P.

The Spanish woman was Crespo’s former partner in a restaurant in Playa Bavaro, a city in the eastern Dominican Republic.

The woman told investigators she had Crespo killed at the request of another unidentified Spanish citizen who offered 10 million pesos (about $256,000) for the businessman’s death, paying 40,000 pesos (about $1,000) up front, a police spokesman said.

Crespo’s body was hauled away in his own vehicle, which was later found with blood stains in Hoyo de Friusa, near Playa Bavaro.

Blood stains, a stick and a plastic bag used in the killing were found in the woman’s house, police said.

The two Dominican men are on the run and police are looking for them.

Two other people who tipped off police to what happened were investigated and ruled out as suspects, but they will be called as witnesses in the case, police said.
