San Pedro Mayor Was Not Aware of Rumored Issues

Daniel Guerrero

We showed you the protests on the island where San Pedranos are angry over the death of Faye Lin. Residents have taken to the streets to express their regret and anger because they believe the teen’s death could have been prevented since the authorities never properly followed up the reports made about the suspected abuse. So, what’s the local politicians saying on the island?  Mayor Danny Guerrero and Minister Manuel Heredia Junior weighed-in.

 

Daniel Guerrero, Mayor, San Pedro Town

“It is definitely a very sad incident and it is an isolated incident, also. It is one of those cases similar to the John McAfee issue. It is an isolated case and yes, the entire town got shocked. Everybody kinda hurt. It touches your heart and I am of the opinion that as the population grows we will be seeing things like this. It is not something that we want to see but people need to be real. The bigger the population the more incidents and things will be occurring. If we would have known this wouldn’t have happened.  This little girl, I knew her very well and I knew the whole family. These people do rent from my sister but that is about it. We don’t know them that much because I don’t like to interfere in nobody’s business or people’s life. But really and truly they had a very successful business but the people are saying different out there. I don’t know if all this saying out there, if they can come forward and provide evidence and that is the problem.  I never saw anything, I will be straightforward. I hear what people say but I never saw anything.”

 

Reporter

“The residents say they reported it to the authorities; any such report came to your office?”

 

Daniel Guerrero

“…at my office, no. I personally base it as rumors, because I don’t have any evidence and those who have the evidence need to come up with it, that is what I am saying.”

 

Reporter

“They have also complained about the Social Worker on the Island?”

 

Daniel Guerrero

“I have heard about the social worker, also. I can tell you that San Pedro needs another social worker or maybe more. But, again, all those little things work with a budget.”

    The town does not have 15k people for rumors of abuse or murder to be unheard of. Politicians, don’t like to face reality, and hope the problem goes away.
