DR1.com - Murder mastermind in drug addiction rehab in Canada

Canadian Gordon Wilson, suspected of being behind the murder of Colombian Maribel Buritica, is being treated at a psychiatric facility in Canada, reportedly for drug addiction, the Police reported, according to Listin Diario. Police spokesman General Maximo Baez said that Wilson, who David Joel Toribio, 32 years, accused of promising to pay US$1,000 for the murder, met the Colombian online and maintained a friendship with her. He said that Buritica had invited Wilson to the country, but when she noted his addiction to drugs, sought to end the friendship and this led to her obtaining a restraining order from the judiciary in an attempt to keep him away.

Baez said that the Dominican Republic and Canada do not have an extradition agreement, but that they are studying how Canadian legislation handles cases of accusations against people with addiction problems.

Buritica, who worked as group manager at Manati Park in Punta Cana, went missing on 4 May. She was last seen leaving the San Juan Shopping Center around 7pm that day. The Police identified the victim by her clothing, which matched the description of what she was wearing that day.

In its coverage of the case, Diario Libre reports that officers investigating the crime also suspect that the motive could have been robbery. As reported, according to one investigator the supposed murderers, Toribio and his girlfriend and alleged accomplice Catherin Matas Molares, 20, found out that Canadian Gordon Wilson, had a restraining order for harassment of the Colombian and may have used it as a pretext to kidnap her, rob her and subsequently kill her.

German killed in his house in Santo Domingo

Two people were shot late Wednesday at a house in the Rosmil urbanization, belonging to a German.

Werner Munch lived alone in the 2 storey house, which he was in the process of remodeling,  and he owned a finance company in a nearby street.

According to neighbors, the attackers were people trusted by Munch.

Reports from the scene have suggested that three men arrived at the house in a Honda Accord car and two went inside. Three women working at the house were gagged and tied.

What happened after that is unclear, but it seems the gunmen began shooting wildly, also injuring a seven year old  child at a neighboring house. They then stole a motor scooter and made their escape.

It is not known if anything was stolen in the attack.
The same house was robbed in August 2007 and the Police arrested Alex Matos Soto, 24 while he was in the house.

Former Cumberland County political, social activist Douglas Jones Romero killed in Dominican Republic

VINELAND — A former social activist in Cumberland County was slain July 10 in the Dominican Republic, allegedly by a woman and teen intent on robbery, published reports said Tuesday.

The Latin American Herald Tribune reported that Douglas Jones Romero, formerly of Vineland, was poisoned by a woman and a 16-year-old girl who wanted to rob him in the northern province of Santiago.

Jones Romero was active in Vineland and other areas of Cumberland County in the 1980s through the mid 1990s.

A former editor with El Veterano, a Spanish-language newspaper based in Vineland, he was an advocate for urging Hispanics to register to vote.

Jones Romero also was active in traditional political circles. A Democrat, he ran for mayor, a seat on the Cumberland County Board of Chosen Freeholders and for state Assembly in the 1st Legislative District, which now includes Cape May County and parts of Cumberland and Atlantic counties.

In January 2005, he lobbied Cumberland County's freeholder board to expand the Board of Social Services. Jones Romero claimed board members had conflicts of interest by having family members working for the agency.

According to the Herald Tribune, the two suspects admitted under questioning that they killed Jones Romero in the city of Tamboril, giving him a poisoned bowl of oats. The suspects allegedly used the money they stole from Jones Romero to buy drugs and go to beauty parlors.

JUNE 14th 2010

An American attorney and businessman was shot to death at his residence in Sosua, a tourist resort in the northern Dominican Republic, police said, adding that two suspects were under arrest.

Arthur Lee Tarlow(see picture and full story) was shot four times Friday night, the North-Central Police Administration said.



APRIL 5th 2010 - A Canadian woman and long-time resident of the Dominican Republic was found stabbed to death in her home last week, and police there are searching for three men they believe are responsible for her death.

A national district police chief identified the victim as 54-year-old Louise Gaudreault, a former resident of Quebec who had been living in the Dominican Republic on a ranch she has owned for the past 25 years.

She offered horseback riding to tourists and earned the nickname Racho Luisa among locals near the resort town of Caberete, according to Le Journal de Montreal.

Ms. Gaudreault lived alone, and her 25-year-old son, Tommy, who also lives in the Dominican Republic, was on vacation in Quebec last Thursday, when her body was found, the French language newspaper reported.

Her body was found Thursday by neighbours in the bathroom of her home in the northwest town of Gaspar Hernandez.

Dominican police officials said Gaudreault was stabbed five times. Scissors and fabric found by her body are being analysed.

They said one suspect being sought is Haitian but declined to say more.

A spokesperson for Foreign Affairs would say only that officials there and at the Consulate General of Canada in Santo Domingo “are aware of an incident involving a Canadian citizen in the Dominican Republic,” and are standing “ready to provide consular assistance as needed.”


This is the second death of a Quebecker in the country in recent months.
