    Default Cabarete ProCab Incident?

    The rumor mill has it that a European man and his wife were attacked in ProCab, Cabarete at 4 a.m. Sunday morning. Supposedly the man was killed and the woman badly injured. Anybody know what actually happened and why?

    He was killed, she was sexually molested and injured but survives. The deceased was Dutch, his wife German. Laptop, camera & cellphone stolen but assailants were apparently looking for documents pertaining to a Court case the victims had over the hotel/restaurant El Castillo. Both victims were allegedly tortured, presumably to extract info about the documents. Sounds brutal & nasty.

    OMG- this is horrible. By far the worst that I have heard. Who owns this hotel/restuarant El Castillo? Just so that we have the name on the record. Just in case it doesn't actually make the record.

    I am totally shocked. I heard about this on Sunday morning and it was clear to me immediately that this was not just an ordenary robbery gone wrong.
    The court case about the Hotel was about to be determined any day or maybe it already was.
    This was a "hit" as far as I am concerned and the fact that some stuff was taken was just a front to make it look like a robbery...or a bonus for the hitmen.
    We have known Jan and Therese for many years. I hope that Therese gets through this ok. Does anyone know how she is and if she can receive visitors?

    Profound condolences, snowbird44. First reports said Therese was in a private clinic in Sosua, later ones say Puerto Plata. I would guess that both Dutch & German Embassies would know the latest information. It's in just about every paper: here are a few:

    Were the victims the owners of the Het Kastelje?

    The more press the better. I hope this Fidel gets whats coming to him sooner rather that later - it is only inevitable.

    Thanks, Lambada, for all the info.
    I can't say that we were close friends with them, but we knew them well enough and talked to them frequently.
    My stomach just turns when I think about this. Poor Therese, she is such a sweetheart and to have suffered through that ordeal, adding insult to injury.
    I hope she gets well soon, physically and mentally.
