Miky Breton, a local television producer and film maker, was found dead yesterday in the Princess Cabañas. According to news reports he was found by the motel staff. The room was covered in blood and he had been stabbed several times and was found with a knife sticking out of his neck. He was also beaten about the head.
Miky was the writer, director and producer of a local Dominican television show, Relatos de Miky Breton (Tales of Mikey Breton). This show delves deeply into the underworld of Dominican society. With stories about corruption, drugs, prostitution, domestic violence and other taboo subjects were well-written, and surprisingly very well acted. He used a lot of local Dominican rappers who gave his work a real authenticity.
Mikey was found dead at a cabaña. For the uninitiated a cabaña is a sex motel. They are located in every city in this very catholic country. They all have the same basic concept. Very flashy with lots of lights, and usually they are clustered in a certain area. You drive into a garage and go inside. You never see anyone, except maybe security upon entering or maybe a housekeeper. Here is a video of a nice cabaña.
This is the number one news story here. Speculation is rampant about why he was killed. Was is because of his fascination with covering the underworld? Did it have something to do with his S.U.V. being stolen a couple of months ago? Were he and his killer at a cabaña to have sex? Police have now confirmed that they are looking for a suspect who is a rapper from San Cristobal. This rapper was a former principal singer in his church who had now starting rapping about marijuana and homosexuality, according to press reports. His group has videos on YouTube. What does any of this have to do with his death? I don't know, but I think we should find out shortly.
I believe that Miky was gay, but I do not know that for certain. I remember seeing him out several times. I did not know him but we exchanged pleasantries. I remember that he spoke very good English and was extremely approachable and very nice. I believe his killer will be caught. But justice might be another matter. (Facebook)
