Police Say Link to Daniel Sosa Murder is Not Only Angle in Case

David Chi

While we were unable gather officially from police the motive for this latest homicide, the Officer Commanding Orange Walk Police, Superintendent David Chi acknowledges that the murder of a key witness is an angle that the investigators are looking into. Here’s that back and forth with the media.

 

Supt. David Chi, O.C., Orange Walk Police

“I have a motive but I will not reveal it.”

 

Reporter

“Is Hernandez’s murder linked to the fatal shooting of Daniel Sosa?”

 

Supt. David Chi

“I have no information of that sir.”

 

Duane Moody

“Now sir, the family gave us an interview earlier today in which they are saying that they know for a fact that Hernandez was one of the persons that issued a statement to police in reference to the murder of Daniel Sosa back in July of this year. They said that following that incident, Hernandez had told them that he had been threatened. Is the police aware of this and are you guys looking at this angle in your investigation given the fact that now, a month and a half after, one of your witnesses would end up dead?”

 

Supt. David Chi

“The late Mister Hernandez had never made any report that he had been threatened; we have no such report from him. I saw Mister Hernandez a number of times personally and he has never mentioned anything to me. I don’t know if he told any other officers, but we have nothing here on record to say that he was threatened.”

 

Duane Moody

“But you can confirm that he did give a statement to police?”

 

Supt. David Chi

“He gave a statement prior in respect to the murder of Mister Sosa yes, but not in respect to him being threatened. Please get that straight.”

 

Duane Moody

“Yes sir, but could it be that it is related?”

 

Supt. David Chi

“I will not speculate and say it is related. I have no information that Mister Hernandez murder is related in conjunction to Mister Sosa’s murder.”

 

Duane Moody

“I understand that sir, but I am asking are investigators looking at that angle that there is that possibility that it could be related given the fact that he was a key witness in the murder of Daniel Sosa?”

 

Supt. David Chi

“I understand you clearly. We are looking to a number of angles; that being one and other angles.”
