Dominican born U.S. fugitive saved by Supreme Court, arrested on murders and released - The National Police and the San Cristóbal Office of the Prosecutor arrested the businessman Winston Rizik Rodriguez alias “El Don” and “El Gallero” (the cockfighter) in connection with the murder of two young men whose dismembered bodies were found in Nizao and Palenque in that province.



Rizik, wanted in extradition by the United States on drug trafficking charges, a request denied by the Supreme Court, is being interrogated by San Cristóbal prosecutor Faustino Pulinario, in connection with the murder of Vladimir Paulino Consuegra and Marcos Douglas Figueroa, whose bodies were found beheaded and chopped up in the town of Nizao.

Rizik’s arrest comes just hours after Bertinio Solano, also charged in the homicide of both men in an alleged drugs shakedown, blamed him for the killings.


Dominican Watchdog Note: Corrupt judges again...... Who helped him escape the extradition to the USA and finish his jail time according to the US Marshals link above? How much does it cost and who do you need to pay in the DR? We would like to print the pricelist for these (un)official government services! The new arrest could just be a smoke screen.....



What did I write Yesterday......, and what happened today, he was released. I could be a fortune teller.... ha ha

Main suspect released in case of gruesome murder

Dominican Republic.- San Cristóbal district prosecutor Faustino Pulinario ordered the release of the cockfight businessman Winston Risik Rodriguez, charged with the murders of two men, whose dismembered bodies were found in several bags left along a span of the Palenque-Saint Cristóbal road in 2010.

The measure drew sharp rebuke from National Police Jose A. Polanco, who called Risik “a vulgar thug who’s been involved in organized crime for several years.”

Risik, after being handed over to his lawyer Duarte Canaán, said he’s willing to answer any questions in connection to the case.

Polanco said Risik was arrested after an arduous investigation which identified him as the mastermind behind the gruesome murders of Vladimir Paulino Consuegra and Marcos Figueroa. “This is an international, vulgar criminal, who became involved in drug trafficking, murder for hire and in crime organized in general."
