Journalist’s alleged killer is also wanted in Puerto Rico
Santo Domingo.- Puerto Rico authorities notified Dominican pars that the fugitive Avelino Castro Garcia, wanted in the death of the journalist Wild Silvestre, has two cases pending in the island, one for drug trafficking and the other for identity theft.
The Justice Ministry’s Anti-laundering Unit director Daniel German Miranda on Friday said Puerto Rico authorities requested cooperation to apprehend Castro, who had escaped from a jail there. “What we have that’s new on Avelino (Castro) is that he had a process in Puerto Rico for drug trafficking and another for identity theft, that is to say that he had another name in Puerto Rico.”
The official added that just as in Puerto Rico the accused is wanted in the country for homicide and money laundering. “We have the documents sent by the Puerto Rico authorities, his fake name, besides what we have here, he has a third there.”
