Search Continues for Accused P.G. Killer Simon Lino

Simon Lino

Punta Gorda police are still looking for Simon Lino, accused of last Wednesday’s brutal stabbing murder of popular musician Lascelle Martinez. Lino is believed to have fled to neighboring Guatemala; however, police have issued an arrest warrant and INTERPOL notice with their Guatemalan counterparts. Martinez was having lunch when Lino turned up at his house and after an exchange of words; he stabbed him multiple times in the back. The Coolie Rebels band member and son of former government minister Peter Eden Martinez attempted to get away, but did not get far before he collapsed.  Just before the fatal stabbing, Lino used the same knife on his former partner Tiannie Figueroa, the woman at the center of the love triangle. She remains hospitalized in stable condition as police look for the jealous killer.
