Killing of officer in Carolina is solved, police commissioner says

By The Star Staff

Police Commissioner Antonio López Figueroa said Monday that one month after the murder of police officer Eliezer Ramos Vélez, the case has been solved.

“The case has been solved [because] from day one, we have practically known who the people are who committed the act,” López Figueroa said in response to questions from the press. “We are compiling the evidence that links that individual to the vile murder and believe me, this case will not only be solved, it will be filed in due course.”

“We have it all,” he added. “We are analyzing testimonial and scientific evidence. We want to have a robust case to hold up in court. There are several people [...] belonging to the Sabana Abajo criminal organization. And as I told you at the beginning with the Piñones case that was going to be filed, this case is not going to be the exception.”

Ramos Vélez was slain on March 29 at around 4:25 a.m., after he followed some individuals involved in gunfire on Baldorioty de Castro Avenue to the interior of the Sabana Abajo residential complex in Carolina.

The police found 35-year-old Ramos Vélez inside a blue Hyundai Tucson.
