GPD and DOC request help of FBI in homicide case

Posted: Updated:

The Guam Police Department and the Department of Corrections announced that they have requested the assistance of the FBI in relation to the homicide that took place at the Hagatna Detention Facility about two weeks ago.
 
It was on December 29th when a 33-year-old detainee was found dead inside his cell. In an interview with KUAM, Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Aurelio Espinola eluded to a possible cover-up because there was no blood on the detainee’s clothing. Dr. Espinola said that because of the extent of injuries there should have been blood on his clothing and in his cell. Neither were found when his body was discovered.

According to GPD and DOC they are working with the FBI to assuage concerns and dispel doubt. “If there is evidence that a federal crime has been committed, the FBI is prepared to investigate,” a press release stated.
