3 New Suspects Hauled in for Question in San Pedro Double Murder

Alejandro Cowo

Three men have detained on separate occasions in respect of the murders of San Pedro tour guide Mario Graniel and American Doctor. Gary Swank.  These suspects, according to Superintendent Alejandro Cowo, are different from an initial trio that was brought in for questioning.  Despite not being able to make an arrest, Cowo says that they are confident that someone had to have witnessed the double homicide on the San Pedro lagoon three weeks ago.

“That investigation is still ongoing.  Police have detained three separate persons, not the persons that were detained before.  It‘s another set or group of persons that police are investigating at this moment and interviewing at this moment.” 



“So there are persons detained pending a live investigation?”


Supt. Alejandro Cowo

“Yes, there are three persons.”



“But sir, at the end of the day, you all are undermined by the fact that it happened at sea and as you know, the sea has no witnesses.”


Supt. Alejandro Cowo

“Well, you know that we believe that somebody out there saw what happened, regardless if it is in the sea, on land, there’s always somebody that saw what happened and we are getting information and that is what we are following up at this moment.”
