    Default Claudio Nasco case

    The Claudio Nasco case is starting to take on an eery resemblance to the Miky Breton case of a few years ago. I couldn't think of the Breton's name the other night when the story broke but I thought about the case right away because the circumstances are so similar. Unlike the Breton case, there are three suspects in the Nasco case. So far, all other known facts are very similar...

    The social networks are buzzing with speculation and insinuations - few are buying the official PN version.

    If the police or politicos are involved, hopefully there will be strong backlash. Miesposa seems to think its politicos that did this.

    I was watching a news channel with some Dominican relatives and I was saying in my innocence, so what's Nuria going to say/do. All Dominicans laughed in my face: Nuria?? If there's one who will say whatever she is paid for to say it's Nuria.

    And I always thought Dominicans respected Nuria...

    Default Nuria

    Nuria is a Dominican institution. I think she gets as much respect as any other institution does in: laws - traffic, anti-corruption, domestic violence, marriage vows, etc.

    She and her ex Pablo McKinney have always been even handed in going after people of all political affiliations. Her audience, on the other hand, will love her or hate based on whichever faction is the subject of one of her expose reports on a given night.

    Relatives of the suspects are positioning them as scapegoats. I expect it won't take long to determine whether the assailants (whoever they are) were known to the victim or if there was some sort of abduction.

    TV host Claudio Nasco murdered

    The Police have arrested three men accused of the murder of 37-year old Cuban-born TV host Claudio Nasco on Friday, 13 December. As reported, Nasco had left his home at 8pm that evening and was scheduled to work at the TV station where he anchored a late news program, but he never got there. His body was then found at the motel.

    The Police say that the three suspects demanded that Nasco pay a RD$25,000 debt. National District prosecutor Yeni Berenice Reynoso has called for an in-depth investigation into the causes of the murder.

    In a press release, the Convergencia Nacional de Abogados (CONA) legal group warned: "The three accused could be scapegoats to ensure the impunity of the real criminals."

    The late Nasco was a leading presenter on NCDN, Channel 2, working with the news team put together by Nuria Piera for the TV and radio network.

    The suspects reportedly said that when together at the Cabana Chevere, where the body was found on Friday, there was a disagreement about the debt that led to violence. The Police said that the accused admitted to tying up the journalist's hands and feet and causing the injuries that caused his death. They are named as Oscar Perez (Yandel), 19, Luis Manuel Estevez Ponciano (Macuto or Anderson) 20, and Josel Rafael Miliano Rodriguez (Pateo) 18. Nasco's lifeless body was found by cleaning staff at the hotel on Friday evening. He was bound and gagged in Room No. 11 of the motel located on Avenida 30 de Mayo in Santo Domingo.

    During a press conference, Police spokesman Jacobo Mateo Moquete said that the arrested said that they made contact with the victim after Nasco called Perez (Yandel) by mobile to agree on meeting at the place where he was murdered.

    Mateo said that the Police suspect pre-meditated murder because the suspected killers were in possession of the knife, toy gun with cement and a roll of adhesive tape. The National Forensic Institute has yet to give the results of the autopsy.

    The Police said that the men who were arrested confessed that after the killing they left on board the victim's white Nissan Murano, which they subsequently abandoned on Km. 12 on nearby Carretera Sanchez. They took a bag containing the victim's clothes, his wallet and RD$4,000, several credit and debit cards with passwords they had obtained by threatening the deceased. After the murder, they used one of the cards at a bank branch where they secured RD$15,000 in cash. They then used another card at an ATM in Manoguayabo where the bank retained the card. The three men described how they shared the money between themselves and each returned to their own homes in Hato Nuevo, Manoguayabo and Santo Domingo West. The suspects say they set fire to the cell phones.

    As reported, when Perez (Yandel) was arrested, he was in possession of a wallet with RD$16,000, a credit card and cell phone as well as a black bag with some of the clothes used on the evening of the killing. He also had a 16-inch knife suspected to have been used in the killing.

    When Estevez Ponciano was arrested he had RD$6,000 and a cell phone. Milano Rodriguez had RD$2,000 and the victim's wallet, with three different bank credit cards and other belongings.

    The motel said that the late TV presenter arrived at the cabana around 7:55pm and just booked the room. One hour later, according to the registry of the staff, the vehicle left. The cleaning staff then found the body in the Jacuzzi.

    Claudio Nasco first came to the Dominican Republic to study at the Catholic seminary in Jarabacoa. He spent four years studying for the priesthood before deciding celibacy wasn't for him. He then moved to TV journalism, working with CDN with Fernando Hasbun and Alicia Ortega, with whom he moved to the SIN news station. He went on to work in public relations with the business group, before returning to journalism at NCDN.

    There are several commentaries pointing to the inconsistencies in the police version.

    Marino Zapete: "Alguien poderoso mandó a matar a Claudio Nasco".- - YouTube

    The two theories are that CN was involved with a prominent figure or that it was a "warning" to Nuria.

    Nuria's response is odd, especially as an investigative journalist of her calibre.
