Kidnapped and Murdered - Shot Twice In The Head

Drug TraffickingNine hours after gunmen abducted him from his home in Santa Cruz de Bejuco, Alexis Antonio Urieta was found dead in the town of Corona, in the district of San Carlos. At 7:45 am yesterday, a resident walking along the Corona del Mar looked at one side of the road and spotted the body of a man, wearing a black sweater, blue pants and black shoes with gold trim. The man's hands were tied behind his back with a plastic rope and metal handcuffs. The inhabitant notified the authorities, who upon arriving at the site confirmed that it was Alexis Urieta, 35, who was reported missing after several subjects arrived home at about midnight Saturday, and threatened him and his wife with a gun.

The unidentified men, presumably with Colombian accents, placed a hood over his head and tied his hands behind his back, as they asked him about a suitcase full of money. The gunmen decided to take him away, but before they left they warned his pregnant wife to keep quiet. Alexis was shot twice in the head.

His body was found laying by the road to the harbor, in the town of Santa Cruz, district of Bejuco, in Chame, and he was in the business of buying and selling fish. According to locals, in recent months Urieta had remodeled the rudimentary port to facilitate the arrival of his boats. Authorities are investigating whether the death has any connection with the alleged disappearance of a briefcase full of money that was being carried by a man who was shot to death on Friday night in El Higo in San Carlos.

These pictures are getting a bit sickening lately, thanks for the graphics to the editor, as I spew,
Look, everytime I see these pictures lately i read a colombian voice was heard, or a colombian was seen in the car, HELLO! Look panamanos, this guy should have stuck to the fish business, who is the stupid one here, the average panamenian especially fisherman is not obviously having good chemistry with the colombians, so stick to the fish! You cant tell a colombian you cant find the money, which is what I am assuming happened here, so comeon guys, can you give us normal readers a week without these pictures? Bejuice!

Yeah Don,
Why not rent a manequin and dress him in some nice clothes? Pose the victim manequin on a nice green lawn and put a fancy drink with an umbrella by its hand. Balloons, flowers, pets, and of course happy babies add a nice touch. Since Colombians might be involved a nice Rolex and a lot of gold bling would be in order. I could go on but I'm late for my sensitivity class.
