Serial Killer Javier Martin's Prison-Based Business Model - Torpedoed!

Boats and Sailing By Don Winner for Panama-Guide.com - On Friday, 9 May 2014, I wrote and published this article Serial Killer Javier Martin - Now Booking Sailing Trips For Tourists, Using His Cell Phone From Inside Panama's La Joya Prison. Armed with a smart phone, Javier Martin was able to access his websites and email, and was trying to book unsuspecting tourists as passengers on a sailing vessel named the "Stahlratte" (Steel Rat), operated by Ludwig Hoffman.

After the publication of the first article, I was contacted by some of the other sailboat captains who also ferry backpackers from Panama to Colombia. They told me that Ludwig Hoffman thought Javier Martin was innocent, and that he was about the only one of them who would possibly be willing to cooperate with Javier Martin's scheme to make some money from prison.

I created a "throw-away" email address and used it to contact Javier Martin directly. He promptly validated the sailing schedule, told me the fee would be $510 per passenger, and passed me the contact information for Ludwig Hoffman, and told me to contact him directly. Of course, Javier Martin was expecting to get paid a commission for having "recruited" two passengers for Ludwig Hoffman and the "Stahlratte" with a sailing date in mid June from Panama to Cartagena, Colombia.

So I published this follow-up article Ludwig Hoffman - Captain of the "Stahlratte" Sailing Vessel - Thinks Javier Martin Is Innocent. I tried repeatedly however unsuccessfully to contact Lugwig Hoffman via cell phone. All of the calls went straight to voice mail. Meanwhile, Javier Martin continued to post additional information on his website, such as the complete sailing schedule for the "Stahlratte."

Finally, Ludwig Hoffman "woke up" and realized what was going on. We have spent the past few days exchanging email about this situation, which I publish here in full;

  • dear sir! i have no idea who you are and how you are getting to know what i am doing and thinking and so on as i have never seen you, talked to you nor written anything to you ever. how can you know that i have given permission to anyone to use sailingvessel stahlratte information that is free to see on her website and how can you be so rude and stupid to insult me for all these things without any information nor investigation before as you have never ever tryed to contact me on one of my email adresses nor phonenumbers all easy to find on stahlratte webpage. what you do is not called journalism, thats called terrorism! nothing of all you have written is really true concerning my person and i would really know how you can explain me that you are so sure that i am thinking this or that and so on.... i would like you to delete my personal photographs from your website and all these lies as well! and i dont want you publish anything i write to you. the only thing you really should do is to beg for my pardon to publish such wrong things about me without knowing anything about me.
  • sincerely, cpt ludwig hoffmann

    Do you know Javier Martin?

    Do you consider Javier Martin to be a friend?

    Have you accepted reservations from Javier Martin, for passengers on your sailing vessel the “Stahlratte”?

    If so, have you paid him a commission for those referrals?

    Do you think Javier Martin is innocent of the charges against him?

    Do you think Javier Martin killed Don North?

    Do you think Javier Martin killed Jean Pierre Bouhard?

    That’s not the way it works. I asked you some very simple and direct questions. If you don’t want to answer them, then don’t. It’s up to you. I won’t spend any time trying to guess or infer the answers to my questions, based on what you’ve written in your email to me.

    And why do you think I need your permission to publish anything? From what I can tell so far, I’ve got it right. So I would suggest that you calm down, and simply answer the questions I’ve asked. If you don’t want to, then don’t. Again, it’s your decision.

    And for the record, I am going to be publishing every word you write to me in these emails. Right now, you look like you’re just mad because you got caught. Deal with it.

    AND AGAIN: YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO PUBLISH ANYTHING CONCERNING ME NOR THE WORDS I WRITE TO YOU NOR WHAT ANYBODY MIGHT HAVE TOLD YOU ABOUT ME!

    And again, I’ll publish whatever the hell I want.

    So, the bottom line is this: I asked you a series of direct questions regarding your apparent business relationship with Javier Martin, and you refused to answer my questions. You called me a bunch of names indicating you are angry – like “mad”, the “holy inquisition,” “rude,” and “stupid.”

    You said “everything I wrote about you is wrong.” I wrote that you are the Captain of the Stahlratte – Is that wrong? “Everything” means everything. So, obviously “everything” I wrote about you is not wrong.

    If you are not willing to answer the direct questions I asked you, then fine. I’ll just publish that list of questions – and your refusal to answer them. No problem, leave it at that.

    And for the record – I’m not taking down either of the articles. And, I am going to publish these emails. Bye.

Not finding any success by screaming at me in email, Ludwig Hoffman then turned his attention to his buddy Javier Martin in prison. Over the weekend Javier Martin has since removed all reference to the "Stahlratte" sailing vessel from his "Hacerse a la Mar" website. In it's place, Javier Martin wrote this gem - in which his stellar intelligence comes shining through. Really, don't miss this one;

    SÁBADO, 17 DE MAYO DE 2014

    WARNING. To the community of sailors and travelers in Colombia and Panama.

    We are sorry but unfortunately we can not openly promote yours sailing trips and charters.

    Two people are bothering using other identities and our e-mail and use the name of the previous administrator of this company: Javier, to creating spam and disturbing.

    They are writing many nautical companies supplanting our identity

    They are also slandering and insulting to the crews of the boats with which we maintain business contacts.

    We apologize on behalf of them.

    However if you want to make a claim to those people who are doing this, you can write directly to them:

    - Donald Kent Winner don@panama-guide.com

    - Mr. Dorsey sailboat name "blind date" sv_blinddate@yahoo.com

    WARNING THESE ARE TWO DANGEROUS PEOPLE : MR. DONALD KENT WINNER AND HIS BOYFRIEND MR. DORSEY :

    Most sailors know that Mr. WINNER are involved in the murder of JEAN PIERRE BOUHARD kidnapping and attempted murder of JAVIER MARTIN.

    Most people know that Mr. WINNER, tucked away in the drug trafficking business, gold and money, using yachts for it.

    But we also know they are dangerous psychopaths, part of a criminal organization.

    Her boyfriend, Mr. DORSEY, with the sailboat "Blind date" now it's located in Cartagena, we assume thats moving their business in that country.

    TRAVELERS WARNING: it is said that these people have links with the two Dutch girls missing in panama and many other missing womens.

    -P.s.s. Please send us pintures of the sail boat "Sv Blind Date" and his/her Mr. DORSEY.

    Hacersealamar@gmail.com

Well, there's one more happy customer. This is absolutely hilarious. In this email - which was obviously written by Javier Martin himself, he starts off by saying that he will no longer be able to run his little scheme from prison: "We are sorry but unfortunately we can not openly promote yours sailing trips and charters." He blames me for "bothering" him, and he accuses me of "creating spam and disturbing." Well, I guess it's natural for him to find by exposing his scheme as "bothering" and "disturbing."

Javier Martin admits to having a "business relationship" with Ludwig Hoffman and the "Stahlratte." He writes: They are also slandering and insulting to the crews of the boats with which we maintain business contacts." The only crew or boat I've written about is Ludwig Hoffman and the "Stahlratte", so by default he has to be the crew and boat "with which" he "maintains business contacts." Gotcha. Sometimes it makes no sense to attempt to spin your way out, when you've gotten caught red handed.

Then Javier Martin goes on to accuse me of being involved in the murder of Jean Pierre Bouhard, the kidnapping and attempted murder of Javier Martin, drug trafficking, gold and money laundering - all using yachts. He calls me a "dangerous psychopath" and "part of a criminal organization." Yup, sure. I'll just add this article on his website Hacerse a la Mar to the relatively long list of crap posted to the Internet about me, by people who are severely pissed off because I've exposed them for what they are.

Finally a personal message to Javier Martin in the La Joya prison, because I feel the chances of him reading this article are about 100% -

  • To: Javier Martin - Enjoy what's left of your miserable life in that hell hole, you worthless piece of shit. Helping the police catch you was one of the highlights of my professional career as an investigative journalist. It took me just four days - from Thursday to Monday - and you were wearing handcuffs. From the family members of your victims, may you rot in hell. I personally hope you suffer in custody, every day. Remember this. You will never see the ocean again. You will never be free again. You will wear a chain like the rabid dog you are until the day you eventually die in prison. I hope you sweat and swelter in the Panamanian heat, in prison. I hope the food sucks, in prison. May the bugs outnumber the rice. I hope you are broke, penniless, without even a single dollar to buy a cigarette, a soda, or a condom to screw the local transvestite. So take your time, develop some disease that will slowly kill you, and suffer - every day, every night, every day, every night, every day, every night. You don't deserve to draw another breath on this earth.
