Dominican Cops Name Suspect in Radio-Station Killings

SANTO DOMINGO – Dominican police said on Wednesday that they have identified a suspect in the murders of a broadcaster and the station director at 103.5 FM radio in the eastern city of San Pedro de Macoris.

Jose Rodriguez, 59, is “the principal suspect,” police spokesman Nelson Rosario said, urging the wanted man to surrender to authorities.

The head of the National Police, Nelson Peguero Paredes, has sent the force’s most experienced investigators to San Pedro de Macoris, Rosario told a press conference.

A gunman burst into the studios of 103.5 FM radio on Tuesday and opened fire, killing broadcaster Luis Manuel Medina and station director Luis Martinez.

Dayana Garcia, a secretary, was badly wounded in the attack, but is now listed in stable condition, according to the National Police.

Medina was delivering a newscast when the fatal shots were fired.

Rosario said that police have questioned dozens of people and carried out multiple searches in the wake of a crime that has alarmed the public.

The double-homicide has been condemned by organizations representing Dominican media workers and by the Inter American Press Association.

Authorities will do whatever is necessary to solve the “horrifying” crime, Attorney General Jean Alain Rodriguez said Tuesday night.
