Killer Found?

According to this morning's newspaper, Francisco Martinez, has been picked up. He has admitted to the police that he killed Jack Phillips. I had heard yesterday that someone was picked up, but I was told it was the guy who lived in the house. I am trying to get more information. It will come out in the wash and as soon as it does I will post it here.

The newspaper article only says that Martinez admitted digging the hole and burying Jack. It also states that there are two policemen detained. Now, why are policemen detained? I am sure we all can guess.

Well, if the bugarrones don't getcha, the police will. It seems that two are involved in this murder according to the news.

I posted under one of the other comment sections regarding this case and the police apparent involvement in it.

I hope it's not true. If it is true, this puts the Dominican police on the same level as many of their Mexican compatriots.

Be careful guys.

I am so happy that the polica are moving forward with someone's arrest, thats a positive sign.Maybe they will solve Jack's murder after all.I am not shocked nor surprised that they are holding two policemen who also may be envolved in his murder.That news should shock no one, since many policemen are corrupted to begin with.Here Just outside of Houston in a rather small community(this week) they arrested a policemen for robery of a Bank, not once, but a few times so the paper stated, and guess what???? He also was the security guard at that same bank when not working at the Police Dept.So it's not just in Santo Domingo it happens like this it happens all over.I sure Jack's family is over-joyed with this great news, now it looks like they (Polica in SDQ )will resolve who did murder Jack and maybe even why. Thats a good thing, so Martha would say.Blessed be the policia who are working so hard to get those responsible behind bars along with due process,something that Jack was not given, Bless his heart.JIM From Houston,Tx.

I am sorry for the family for losing such a good member of the family and a nice I guy. Jack was a good guy who spent a lot of time in Santo Domingo. Anthony has said several times he didn't know him well. That's cause he wasn't part of Anthony's scene....but anyway, I think it's admirable that Anthony has dedicated so much air time to someone not of his demographic....it's a first. Anyway, while I think that's a good thing, I am disturbed that his family--who didn't take the time to come down here to try to find Jack--hasn't even said "thanks" or anything for all the interest and folks who tried hard to keep the publicity going about this case. The least those people could do would be to say thanks to Jack's friends, the gay community, etc. Not one fucking word? It is so typical of these asses that didn't care enough to even fly down and help out or even to go into Jack's house and look around. They would have found him 6 weeks earlier if they had done that. I am sure now that he is gone, they will be coming down and hiring lawyers trying to get his property sold to get money out of the deal. Asses. Not even a fucking thank you to all his friends. And I, unlike Anthony and most others here, actually knew Jack and spent a lot of time with him, over many lunches, breakfasts, etc....he was a good person and fun and nice.

Was that meant as a compliment?

It reads like a compliment thru clenched teeth. I think they have a pill for that.

I think that what has happened is a sad commentary on the lives of gay men as we grow older. Few of us (for a whole bunch of reasons) rarely have a long-time partner in our "golden" years. If lucky, we may have some family and a few good friends still around. We will also make excellent targets for all types of predators who will come snooping around to see what they can get from us. Sadly, some of us may be taken for everything we have, even our lives. And when
everything is said and done this case, and Mr. Phillips, will be just a memory which not many, if anyone, will remember. May he rest in peace.

THIS IS TO ANONYMOUS WHO DECIDED TO CRITICIZE CRAIG FOR HIS EFFORTS IN TRANSLATING A NEWSPAPER ARTICLE FOR THOSE OF US WHO ARE NOT AS PROFICIENT IN SPANISH AS ANONYMOUS MUST THINK HE IS. WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM? YOU ARE REALLY A PIECE OF WORK, ANOTHER BITCHY QUEEN WHO CAN'T SAY ANYTHING GOOD ABOUT ANYONE. GET A LIFE AND DO SOMETHING POSITIVE IN YOUR LIFE. IF I KNEW WHO YOU WERE I WOULD TELL THIS ALL TO YOUR FACE, BUT YOU PREFER TO REMAIN ANONYMOUS, SO ENJOY YOUR MISERABLE LIFE.

Listin Diario says that this Francsco Martinez turned himself over to the police in the town of Constanza for fear of being killed himself. There is also another person is jail apparently believed to be an accomplice. How many more participated in this killing is
anyone's guess!

1. The beginning of the translation plainly states it was a Google translation.

2. If you're getting old and worrying about your personal safety, take a self defense class. It'll keep you in shape, alert and, better prepared to protect yourself. No sense sitting around all woe-is-me-face waiting to get your head smashed in. Remember- Bash Back!!

3. Jim, shut up already. You sound like an illiterate hillbilly.

To Anonymous who wants me to learn spanish: Well I do read and speak spanish, thank you very much. I'm a least conversational level and reading comprehension level which is not what a lot of people who use this blog can do.

Just trying to be helpful. You might want to do the same sometime.

Who knows? The papers say that he was in charge of Phillips property
when Phillips was not in Santo
Domingo. A couple of nights ago, a
German couple was killed in Puerto Plata and their bodies thrown into a well. Apparently, they were also killed by somebody close to them. It seems that if you are a foreigner living here, you might as well attach a bulls-eye to your back because sooner or later someone is going to set their
sights on you!

Anonymous said...

In the Puerto Plata case, they seem hell bent on blaming the Haitians.

Either way, it does seem like things down there are getting a wee bit dangerous.

We know you are careful Anthony but please be extra careful!!

Derek said...

For the record, not everyone who comes to Santo Domingo has a parasitical relationship with the Dominicans. Some of us do love the country and the people. What happened to Jack is sad on many levels and some of the comments made here is why some queens should not be invited to your dinner party!

Anonymous said...

Trust. Those queens are not on the list.

Actually, the LIST has gotten smaller and smaller as fewer long term visitors visit.

These days the list may consist of one or two people with a kazoo and party hats sitting in the VIP (LOL) lounge of JD's.

God, i love that island!
