Murder on busy avenue uncovers police-military hit squad
Santo Domingo.- A band of assassins comprised of police and military executed Alexander Acosta (Alex), 35, on Lincoln Av. Friday, and could be the first evidence of a major case of drug trafficking and organized crime.
The shooting is believed to be linked to a major case based on the large amount of money paid and found at the scene and the fact that the driver of the shooters escaped on motorcycle was paid 7,500 euros (RD$418,350), according to the police.
The authorities meanwhile found RD$196,000 in cash in the victim’s pockets and three European Union passports in his vehicle.
The sailor Luis Hector Méndez (Rubio El Marino) is the person who police call the murder’s mastermind and who allegedly hired three hit men to kill Acosta.
Allegedly, “Rubio El Marino” paid a large sum of money to police agent José Leonel Rodriguez, apprehended yesterday, and that Diomaris Ramon Encarnacion and Jordan Garcia Contreras were on the bike from where the shots were fired.
