We reported on Monday that Prime Minister Dean Barrow’s first official visit to Miami was interrupted by a murder at the Miami Beach Resort Hotel where he was attending a dinner dance. It has now been confirmed that the man who was killed was a Russian tourist who, along with a friend, hired two prostitutes from the Miami Beach area. It is not clear why the shooting occurred but apparently the agent or manager of the women showed up and killed the tourist. Here’s a clip of a Miami station’s coverage of the incident.

Saturday Night more than one thousand hotel guests were not inside but outside the Miami Beach Resort and Spa. Everybody evacuated after a body is found on the eleventh floor. Police say a man was shot to death. Simultaneously guests smell a mysteriously foul odor.

“Right now we’re not sure exactly what type of substance or what kind of spray was used inside the hotel that caused the officers to retreat.”

One person snapping this picture of a man who police call a witness to the crime emerges with blood stained clothes. As police pull out bags, guests are stuck outside for five hours.

    gee…dont worry about Earl…he is controlled by emotions and not his good judgement. I did not support the party that is in power right now but i do respect the “decision” of the people. And whenever “any” elected offical does anything that does ot benefit the people i make sure to make my voice heard…let Mr. Barrow do his job…trips abroad to meet and greet potential investors and to place us on the map with his job description…

  5. Earl Grey says:
