The Court of First Instance during a preliminary hearing on Thursday, September 8, 2016, ordered the release of K.L. (33), one of the suspects in the ongoing Mahi-Mahi investigation regarding May 29, 2016, shooting at the Westin Dawn Beach Resort parking. It was K.L.’s defence lawyer who requested the suspension. The Prosecutor’s Office opposed to this request stating that there are sufficient grounds to hold the suspect, as there are indications that K.L. had actively taken part in the shooting and that he is suspected of money laundering based on a large amount of counterfeit money which was found in his car supposedly to be used in a rip deal. The new court hearing dare set is on December 21, 2016. K.L. still remains a suspect in the investigation as are A.J., L.W., O.E.J.A., A.R.L.B.T., and G.W.M.Court orders suspension of K.L.’s pre-trial detention.
