Vicente "El Loco" Mosquera, Ex-Boxing Champ, Involved in Shooting Death in Panama

Sports Section "El Loco" killed a man in Puerto," was the rumor making the rounds yesterday in La Chorrera and apparently it was not just idle gossip. Ex-world boxing champion Vicente "El Loco" Mosquera has been tied to the death of 29 year-old Antonio Trejos, a resident of Puerto Caimito who went by the nickname "Chupampa." When asked about the case the national police only said that the case would be handled in Panama City and in the press office there was no information available. Jaime Maning, a cousin of "Chupampa", told the Panama America newspaper that everything was calm Saturday night in the area near the beach in Puerto Caimito until "El Loco" Mosquera arrived, "with four other guys, among them the boxer Maco Arboleda." Everyone was looking at Mosquera and exchanging looks and glares. He said that even at one point some police officers were in the area and Mosquera told them "what are you looking at?" Maning said that at some point "El Loco" threw a bottle which cut open his forehead, triggering a fight between his cousins and those who were with Mosquera. (more...)

Editor's Comment: Vicente "El Loco" Mosquera won the WBA Super Featherweight Title on 12 May 2006 in Argentina and then lost it in his first title defense eighty five days later at the Figali Convention Center on 5 August 2006, exactly one month ago. Police found his car his morning in Parque Lefevre parked in front of the building where he lived in Panama City, damaged and with blood inside.

"Then everything calmed down, and we were going on our way when "El Loco" started shooting, and I didn't know that my cousin was shot until I arrived at the hospital and saw that he was dead," he said.

Things were so crazy in Puerto Caimito that the mother of "El Loco" Andrea Mena showed up and hit Maning in the head with a baseball bat, minutes after he had been hit in the head by the bottle thrown by "El Loco."

According to Maning "El Loco" has been causing problems since last Thursday when he arrived at Puerto Caimito where some people were playing dice and he pulled out his pistol and put it on the ground several times.

He added that "El Loco" went around aiming the pistol at several people including a boy with the nickname "El Chino" and threatened to shoot him. According to witnesses on Sunday Mosquera was annoyed with jealousy after his ex-girlfriend Anayka broke up with him. Unconfirmed versions of the events indicate that supposedly before the incident near the beach occurred where "Chupampa" was killed, "El Loco" had put his pistol to his ex-girlfriend's head.

Yesterday afternoon rumors in Puerto Caimito were flying that the one who had shot and killed "Chupampa" was a cousin of "El Loco" who goes by the nickname "Popeye".

Attempts to obtain the version of events from "El Loco" Mosquera and his family were impossible because his mother had been taken in the early morning hours by a police patrol car and the house was closed.

Aura de Magallón, the grieving mother of the victim, said she is hoping for justice because the person that was killed was a human being, not a dog. She said her family has never had any problems with Vicente Mosquera even though every time he returns to Puerto Camitio he causes problems with someone "because when he drinks he gets crazy."

Mosquera's promoter Rogelio Espiño said that Mosquera was in the area but didn't have anything to do with the incident. Espiño said he has spoken to Mosquera who said he was surprised by the accusations being made against him. He said he is seeking legal counsel to help Mosquera face these charges.

PANAMA AMERICA "EL LOCO mató a un hombre en puerto", era el comentario que andaba de boca en boca ayer en La Chorrera. Y es que no era para menos, se trataba del ex campeóm mundial de boxeo, Vicente "El Loco" Mosquera, a quien se vincula con la muerte de Antonio Trejos de 29 años, mejor conocido como "Chupampa", residente en Puerto Caimito. La Policía Nacional se limitó a informar que el caso sería manejado en la sede en Panamá, y en efecto, en el Despacho de Prensa no apareció registrado el hecho. Sin embargo, Jaime Maning, primo de "chupampa", dijo a Panamá América que todo estaba tranquilo el sábdo en la noche en el área del balneario, hasta que llegó "El Loco" Mosquera, "con cuatro muchachos más, entre ellos el boxeador Maco Arboleda". A todo el mundo lo miraban, con caras y los "rofiaban". Asegura que incluso en un momento llegaron unos policías y Mosquera les dijo "qué ustedes me miran". Maning comentó que en una de esas "El Loco" tiró una botella y le rompió la frente, lo que desencadenó en una riña entre sus primos y los que acompañaban al boxeador. "Cuando todo se quedó quieto, ibamos pa'lante y allí fue que El Loco, empezó a tirar los tiros, yo no sabía que a mi primo lo habían disparado hasta que llegué al hospital y ví que estaba muerto", añadió. Puerto Caimito estaba tan caliente, y es que la madre del "El Loco", Andrea Mena, se presentó a la placita y le metió un batazo en la cabeza a Maning, quien minutos antes había recibido un botellazo de parte de Mosquera, afirmó el afectado. Parece que "El Loco" estaba belicoso desde el jueves, cuando según Maning, llegó a Puerto Caimito donde los pela'os estaban jugando dado, se sacaba la pistola y la ponía en el suelo, repetidas veces. Agrega que se la pasó apuntando a varias personas con la pistola llegando a decirle a un muchacho apodado "chino", "quieres que te cuereé". Según testigos, el domingo Mosquera andaba molesto por los celos con su ex pareja Anayka, a quien no le acepta el haberlo dejado. Versiones no confirmadas señalan que supuestamente antes que se diera el incidente donde perdiera la vida "chupampa", "El Loco" le había puesto la pístola a su ex concubina en la sien. En horas de la tarde de ayer, en Puerto Caimito se rumoraba que el que había asesinado a "Chupampa" era un primo de "El Loco", apodado "Popeye". Fueron imposibles los esfuerzos por conocer la versión de los familiares del "Loco Mosquera", ya que su madre fue conducida desde tempranas horas de la mañana en un patrulla y su casa permaneció cerrada. Aura de Magallón, madre de la víctima, dolida por lo sucedido, dijo que espera que se haga justicia, porque a quien mataron fue a su hijo, no a un perro. Según la madre de "Chupampa", jamás en su familia han tenido algún contratiempo con Vicente Mosquera, a pesar que cada vez que él va a Puerto Caimito tiene problemas con alquien, "porque cuando toma se vuelve loco". En tanto el promotor Rogelio Espiño, apoderado de Mosquera, aseguró que su pupilo estuvo en el lugar de los hechos, pero no tuvo nada que ve con el incidente. Espiño aseguró que habló con Mosquera, quien le explicó sentirse sorprendido con los señalamiento que se le hacen. Dijo que se está buscando asesoría legal para Mosquera para hacer frente a estos señalamientos.
