Foreigners arrested in case of murdered German, in La Altagracia Province
Five people have been arrested, implicated in the presumed murder of a German man whose body was found in the water at Cabo San Rafael, east of Boca de Yuma in La Altagracia province.
German citizen, 48-year old Peter Thomas Lorenz, who lived in Bavaro, had been missing since 14 June 2015. He used to be a crew member on a boat called “Sol Azul” along with two other Germans, 45-year old Heiko Krepschmer, and 58-year old Guenter Schmit.
The two Germans were both arrested along with 43-year old Dutchman Mark Boers; 35-year old Ismael Rivero Carrizo, who is Spanish and the captain of the boat, Dominican Jose Antonio Ulloa Brito. Apparently they had left that night for Saona Island and the men detained said the missing man could have fallen overboard. The incident is currently being investigated.
