This guy was a player on the big stage - LA, top night clubs in town and a huge playboy.

Not his first rodeo but he didn't seem to do too well.....did he ?

It's always related to prostitution or otherwise sexual relationship gone bad.
Yes I always noticed that, most foreigner in DR get involved in relationships with Dominicans of baja calaña.

How many 'shoot'emups' do we see every week in the USA.....I'm afraid to go many places....

There is usually a 'story' behind the murders of ex-pats here.....

Everytime I stay in Sosua I see bunch guys wearing expensive jewelry, never heard of any one been robbed or killed.
As long you stay in safe area you are ok but I don't see the need of romper ojos in Sosua, all you need is Dollars in your pockets.
My two cents! 😊

You missed the two black guys pistol whipped in Batey by a group of Dominicans for their gold chains. And one of the perps was an off duty cop?

I'm not sure why but I keep thinking about this murder. Think I'm getting obsessed.

He was worldly and savvy - you would think. Prior nightclub owner/operator. Moved to the US from France in 1981. Spoke French.

Maybe this was his first time here and thought Las Terrenas was like St. Tropez? It's not. I find LT edgy in many parts.

So here are my thoughts:
1) chica(s)
2) drugs (as in "party favors")
3) flashed a Rolex too many times in town in clubs or riding his motorcycle
4) Taxi driver snitch
5) Housekeeper snitch
6) Villa complex "watchy" snitch
7) Dirty cops
8) Airbnb host snitch
9) Gardener/Pool boy snitch
10) ?

I'm sure whatever happened, the police will screw the investigation up. Wouldn't be surprised if they took his Ray-Bans.

He spoke French, very interesting.
Another famous Dominican was assassinated today in Santiago by his Haitians employees...
Vitor Erarte, famoso Folklorista Dominicano well known as the Santiago City Carnaval 👑.

Vitico Erarte RIP

s safe deposit box was robbed, too.

Wasn't a Swiss tourist found dead, stuffed under his bed in a hotel in Sosua not too long ago? I think his safe deposit box was robbed of a lot of money.

I'd be willing to bet that some of these guys with the fancy jewelry wake up to find it missing.

El mismo residía en el sector de Las Ballenas del municipio de Las Terrenas en esta provincia de Samaná, según información de lugar los causantes de la muerte sustrajeron varios relojes de la marca Rolex, así como una caja fuerte que se encontraba en la residencia.
Al lugar del hecho se presentaron miembros de la Policía Preventiva y del DICRIM acompañados del Magistrado Reinaldo Quevedo y la médico legista Dra. Caren, quienes certificaron que la muerte se produjo por trauma craneal y comprensión manual en el cuello (ahorcado).
El cadaver fue enviado al instituto de ciencia forense INACIF de San Francisco de Macoris para fines de investigación.

come to think of it, how did the police know his Rolex watches were stolen? He was dead in the room. No witness.
So how did they know unless they stole the watches themselves?

I am pretty sure some of the jewelry will go missing after a long night of fun with the Chicas.

There are probably a lot of people in LT that knew he had Rolex watches. That's not to say the police didn't take them though.
