Ambiorix Nepomuceno Rodriguez sought for femicide
Interpol is looking for Ambiorix Nepomuceno Rodriguez, suspected by the Dominican authorities of murdering lawyer Paola Languasco. He is sought on charges of kidnapping and homicide. The woman’s body was found in a sewer near Rodriguez’s home in Jardines del Norte, Santiago. She had been missing for 19 days.
A judge also sent two men, Cristino Antonio Marmol Nunez and Lariel Alejandro Pichardo Marte to one year’s pretrial detention in connection with the crime.
An autopsy revealed that Languasco had struggled with her killer, suffering a broken arm, nose and mouth. She died of gunshot wounds, according to the autopsy. During a meeting with Attorney General Francisco Dominguez Brito, the lawyer’s father, Leopoldo Languasco described the murder as a femicide, saying that his daughter had been killed after refusing to have sex with the accused.
The Attorney General said, “For us Paola is one of the heroines who struggle for their integrity and dignity against the unjustified violence and machismo that we are fighting against and will always fight.”
Rodriguez is known to have traveled to Madrid, Spain.
The Languasco family has accused the law enforcement authorities of complicity and negligence by allowing Rodriguez to leave the country despite being the main suspect in the case. “This is business, not investigation,” said Leopoldo Languasco, referring to the prosecutors and Police agents investigating the case.
