The murderer of the lawyer Paola Languasco arrested in Spain
Ambiorix Nepomuceno Rodriguez, the main suspect in the murder of lawyer Paola Languasco, was arrested in the Spanish city of Burgos yesterday, Thursday 21 May 2015. He now faces extradition to the Dominican Republic. Attorney General Francisco Dominguez Brito announced his arrest and confirmed that the extradition process was underway. Dominican prosecutors had requested his arrest through Interpol, as reported in Diario Libre. Dominguez Brito highlighted the cooperation received from the Dominican Embassy in Spain. He described the crime of which Nepomuceno Rodriguez is accused as “horrible.” The autopsy showed that the victim had been beaten with a heavy object, and there had been a struggle because one of her arms was broken. She finally died of four gunshots wounds.
The two men who disposed of her body, Cristino Antonio Marmol Nunez and Alejandro Pichardo Marte confessed to having been hired by Nepomuceno Rodriguez. They said they were paid RD$2,000 for the grisly task.
Meanwhile, Paola Languasco’s father Leopoldo called on the Police and the Attorney General to guarantee Nepomuceno Rodriguez’s safety, amid fears that he could be eliminated to prevent him from revealing the names of the police officers and judiciary officials who let him walk free, even when he was the lead suspect in the case. He left the country for Spain.
