More arrests for German tourist murder
The National Police has arrested two people in connection with the killing of a German tourist in Puerto Plata last Thursday, 11 February 2016.
According to National Police spokesman Maximo Baez Aybar, the arrests took place after a shootout with one of the suspects, Dauris Manuel Felipe (Daga) who managed to get away.
Baez Aybar, speaking on “El Gobierno de la Manana” radio program yesterday, Monday 15 February 2016, did not reveal the identities of those under arrest but only said that they had been arrested after evidence linking them to the crime was discovered at the scene, including clothes and other belongings.
The German tourist, 76-year old Ernst Gunter Haun was killed when he was walking on the Malecon in Puerto Plata along with his 70-year old wife Marion Rossi Haun, who is also German.
He was being robbed of a gold chain and he resisted and was shot in the chest and the robbers fled.
A police patrol subsequently killed 28-year old Kelvin Brito Lopez (Calvin Kleiny) who is alleged to have been one of the killers.
