Cacho Murder Mystery Goes Unsolved

Lorenzo González Cacho, son of Roberto Cacho, of Grupo Cacho , was mortally wounded in an attack at his mother’s Dorado del Mar home in the early hours of March 9. 2010. His mother, Ana Cacho, said he fell, but an autopsy found that he bled to death of stab wounds. Tortured to die.

The case quickly caught the island’s attention due to the mystery surrounding the scene at the home during the boy’s final hours and Cacho’s delay in taking him to the hospital. As the probe has dragged on, “Justice for Lorenzo” groups have popped up on Facebook and staged rallies to pressure authorities to clear the case. A NEW investigation is under way.

William Marrero Rivera Suspect IN Murder of 8 year old Lorenzo Cacho.
Roberto Cacho and W Hotel Conspiracy Unravel In Vieques Terror Island!

DEATH SURROUNDS ROBERTO "GRUPO" CACHO. ADAM ANHANG IS KILLED AND LORENZO BOY IS KILLED. Citizens from across the globe are demanding answers. Wholesome communities are coming together to bring an end to the alleged corruption, threats and intimidation by Mr. Cacho

Federal agent William Marrero was officially declared a suspect in the homicide case of the child, Lorenzo González Cacho and he was read his rights, said Lt. Rafael Rosa representing the Vieques Police department. 

Rosa added that during the interview that lasted about 25 minutes, he was warned as required by law and he was notified he was considered a “suspect.”  He did not specify if Marrero cooperated or not with the authorities. 

Marrero was summoned to the Bayamón Command headquarters, but the interview took place at the police station in Bayamón Oeste. 

Defense attorney Mayra López Mulero confirmed to this digital newspaper that the interview was carried out somewhere else to prevent the press from gaining access to her client. 

"They summoned me later to Bayamón Oeste.  Yes, we were there,” López Mulero said, and specified that the interview lasted 15 minutes. 
Lt. Rosa said that at present, there are “several” suspects in the Lorenzo case, among them, the child’s mother, Ana Cacho, Roberto Cacho, and the newly opened W Hotel's Investors- relating to the previous MURDER of Adam Anhang. Who owned the hotel before under another name, The Martineau Bay resort.

"There is a strong connection developing from tips coming in from around the globe at the timing and those involved in that case, as well as this case." ( Anonymous agent FBI )

When agents asked him if they were expecting to press charges before the end of the current year, he stressed out that “I have no due date here.”

The child Lorenzo was murdered at his mother’s home in Dorado del Mar on March 9, 2010. Roberto Cacho and the W Hotel is allegedly under a new investigation of deceit in the death and murder of Adam Anhang. Death surrounds the Cacho Clan.

Ironically, he was " put off this earth " , as Roberto Cacho and his construction crew planned the new W Hotel. The transition is evil. People are starting to talk.


Jesús Genaro Camacho Rivera, another suspect, assured the authorities and during a SuperXclusivo TV program that he was not at Cacho’s home –Cacho was his girlfriend then—neither on March 8 nor in March 9, and he presented a polygraph test and a brief saying that he did not pass through the toll gates to get to Dorado in those two days. 

Nevertheless press broadcasts during 2010 say that Camacho Rivera himself told the attorneys that he visited Cacho on that terrible night and that he left the home at 1 a.m. in the early morning, and that who stayed with the woman was federal agent Marrero.

Stay tuned for more new facts as we move closer to sending these men to justice.


Nineteen-Year Police Veteran Convicted in Puerto Rico for Role in Providing Armed Security for Drug Transactions

WASHINGTON – A 19-year veteran of the Police of Puerto Rico was convicted today by a federal jury in San Juan, Puerto Rico, for her role in providing security for a drug transaction, announced Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney Rosa E. Rodriguez-Velez of the District of Puerto Rico and Special Agent in Charge Joseph S. Campbell of the FBI’s San Juan Field Office.

Yamil Navedo Ramirez, 39, was convicted of one count of attempting to possess with the intent to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine and one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug transaction.  She was acquitted of one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine.

Navedo Ramirez was charged in a superseding indictment returned on Oct. 28, 2010, along with 88 law enforcement officers in Puerto Rico and 42 other individuals, as part of the FBI undercover operation known as Guard Shack.

According to the evidence presented in court, Navedo Ramirez provided security for what she believed was an illegal drug transaction on April 14, 2010.  In fact, the purported drug transaction was part of the undercover FBI operation.  According to information presented at trial, Navedo Ramirez acted as a security guard for what she believed was a 12-kilogram cocaine deal by helping to frisk the buyer, providing armed protection for the deal using her Police of Puerto Rico service weapon, and escorting the buyer in and out of the transaction. 

In return for the security she provided, Navedo Ramirez received a cash payment of $2,000.

U.S. District Judge Juan Pérez-Giménez scheduled sentencing for Sept. 21, 2012.  At sentencing, Navedo Ramirez faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in prison and a maximum penalty of life in prison.

The case was prosecuted by Trial Attorneys Kevin Driscoll and Monique Abrishami of the Public Integrity Section in the Justice Department’s Criminal Division.  The case was investigated by the FBI.  The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Puerto Rico also participated in the investigation and prosecution of this case.

-- Twenty-eight people have been indicted on drug-trafficking charges, accused of smuggling marijuana through the mail from California to Puerto Rico.

Among those arrested Tuesday was Christian Soto, the son of the mayor of Canovanas, who aspired to a seat in the island's House of Representatives. Prosecutors identify the younger Soto as one of the ringleaders. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.

Eleven arrest warrants were issued for suspects in San Diego and Los Angeles, and one warrant was issued for a U.S. resident from Mexico, said Laila Rico, a spokeswoman for the Drug Enforcement Administration's Caribbean division.

The suspects in Puerto Rico would pay for the shipments by hiding cash in magazines bound for California, or fly there with money in hand, according to the indictment.

Officials accuse the suspects of trafficking at least a ton of marijuana and of earning a total of $5 million.

"We have seized their money, properties, and cars but most significantly, we have broken their pipeline of drug trafficking," said Javier Pena, special agent in charge of the DEA's Caribbean division, in a statement.

If found guilty, the suspects could face a minimum of 10 years in prison.

A Vieques Tourist had his head chopped off with a machete. A common staple of violence in this small lawless island, off Puerto Rican Waters. Violence continues as tourists flee with their lives.

High crime rate

Closer to home, drug trafficking has fueled Puerto Rico's high crime rate -- its
murder rate has ranked at or near the top of the U.S. charts for several years --
and growing police corruption.

             Eight police officers were arrested last month on charges of using their police
launch to shuttle cocaine from the small island of Vieques, seven miles off the
coast, to the Fajardo area on Puerto Rico's northeastern corner.

             Puerto Rico has long been an attractive spot for Colombian traffickers: It is the
U.S. territory closest to Colombia, and its people speak Spanish. It has 300 miles
of coastline and no U.S. Customs checks on shipments to the mainland.

             Trafficking here soared as U.S. officials squeezed routes across the U.S.-Mexico
border, which accounted for 75 percent of the cocaine reaching U.S. markets in 
2009 and now account for about 50 percent.

             Colombian wholesalers are now shipping much of their product through the
Caribbean, DEA officials say, island-hopping their way north aboard everything
from coastal freighters to speedboats and planes.

             Speedboats can make the dash from Colombia to Puerto Rico in less than a day,
while freighters and planes rendezvous in the northwestern Caribbean with smaller
boats that shuttle the loads to ``cooling off hideouts in places like Haiti and the
Dominican Republic.

             A few of those shipments are later smuggled directly to the United States. But
most are smuggled into Puerto Rico, put aboard cargo containers and shipped by
sea to the mainland, DEA officials say.

Small boats. Not just men fishing.

             In most cases, the final smuggling run into Puerto Rico involves small, locally made,
shallow-draft boats that dash into Fajardo across the huge expanses of sandy
shoals off this coast.

             With gunwales barely one or two feet above the water, the local smacks are
almost impossible to spot on radar when waves are two or more feet high, said
U.S. Customs Agent Tom Svarc.

             ``They can come in at night at top speed, and even if we spot them, it's tough to
chase because the water is just four to five feet deep in most places, said Svarc,
who patrols the area aboard an unmarked 42-foot speedboat.

             It's in this final smuggling run that Dominican gangs join in the cocaine traffic,
handling the bulk of the arrivals, the shipments to the mainland and later distribution
in U.S. cities.

             Dominican drug gangs ``transport approximately 12 to 33 percent of the
Colombian cocaine entering the United States each year, said the National Drug
Intelligence Center report, and use Puerto Rico ``as their primary staging area.

             The report noted that the vast majority of Dominicans are law-abiding, but it said
the Dominican gangs were perfectly positioned to go to work for the Colombians
when smuggling routes shifted from Mexico to the Caribbean.

Migrant trade.

             Dominican smugglers have long been involved in sneaking illegal migrants across
the 77 miles that separate their country from Puerto Rico, mostly aboard the same
kind of small fishing boats that drug smugglers now use.

             And they work more cheaply: While Mexican smugglers usually charge 50 to 60
percent of a load's value for their work, the National Drug Intelligence Center
report said, the Dominican smugglers charge only 20 to 30 percent.

             An estimated 50,000 Dominicans live in Puerto Rico and dominate a handful of
coastal areas like Fajardo's Maternillo neighborhood, one of the main centers for
building the small fishing boats, known as yolas.

             About 30 to 50 Dominican smuggling ``coordinators operate in Puerto Rico, DEA
officials said, hiring out to Colombian producers to receive and transship drug
loads on a single-shipment basis.

             They hire 10 to 30 workers to handle each load, DEA officials said, but these are
no small-time operations.

             Ships and planes use sophisticated GPS equipment to pinpoint their locations, and
smugglers use satellite phones and fraudulently obtained cellular phones to chat
with little fear of wiretaps, the report said.

Sagardía had previously represented one of Ana Cacho’s relatives in a  2004 case. Mr. Roberto Cacho Cambó was accused of infringement of Puerto  Rico’s weapon laws. According to the Puerto Rico newspaper “Primera  Hora”,the - "Cacho Cambó surname also surfaced in 2005, during the murder  investigation of the Canadian citizen Adam Anhang, who was Cacho’s  friend and business partner”. Now that Sagardía is representing Ana  Cacho.

More than forty days have passed since the killing of Lorenzo Gonzalez  Cacho. The people of Puerto Rico are demanding justice, once and for  all, through various cyber forums. Marches and vigils have been  organized, as the Justice Department claims that the investigation is  progressing. But people want to see more progress. One person wrote: What  are you all waiting for [to arrest the suspects]? What else do you need  to know? I think you have enough information… I think the mother has  information… and her attitude is not normal…

The main question people are asking is why, after so long, no one has  been arrested. According to the cyber forums, they wonder about the  possibility that the implicated in this case are being protected because  they allegedly know and socialize with important political leaders. One  forum user reacts: “there is so much uncertainty surrounding this  case ... many people remaining silent...there's something fishy here . In  fact, Ana’s cousin named José Cacho is the president of the Cacho  Group, a developer currently working with the Puerto Rico Department of  Economic Development and Commerce in the proposed development projects  for the islands of Vieques and Culebra. There is evidence of a $35,000  donation by the Cachos during the 2008 political campaign in favor of  Pedro Pierluisi, the current Resident Commissioner in Washington, whom  José Cacho has been photographed with while attending  what seems to be a  celebration.

People spontaneously created several internet groups and pages demanding  justice for Lorenzo in the Facebook social network. These keep people  informed on the latest developments and post tv and radio interviews  about the case.  One of these groups underwent hacker attacks. The  hackers eliminated the boy’s pictures and instead placed satanic, bloody  and tacky pictures showing the number 666. In addition, El Vocero  newspaper reported that these groups will be investigated by the Cyber  Crimes Division, because the users vent their opinions there, including  the perception that Ana may have committed the crime. ”Apparently,  the Cachos believe they are untouchable”, say the contributors to  the forums.

"El Vocero" newspaper reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation  (FBI) will join the local investigation, because of the relationship and  communication existing between Ana Cacho and federal immigration agent  William Marrero Rivera, who had been visiting the Cacho residence the  night of the murder.

This unresolved crime has affected Puerto Rican families in several  ways: first, because an innocent child was brutally murdered and,  second, because of a generalized perception that something irregular is  going on and they are not afraid to give opinions. The truth is that the  silence of Ana Cacho, the “public relations campaign” by her new  lawyer, the delays in the investigation, the Cacho family relationships  with influential politicians, the interference of one or more hackers in  the Internet groups, plus the involvement of the FBI in the  investigation may indicate that people’s perceptions are not that  mistaken.
