Brigitte Katelaan worked for ATV and TeleAruba as a producer.
Camilo Romero worked for ATV as a cameraman.

Both found dead by hanging within weeks of each other.
(Brigitte's latest doumentaries: The International Racetrack
& legal/illegal prostitution in certain towns in Aruba.)

I am no expert on hangings but can apply a bit of physics to this and as Cat posted, there are several things wrong with this photo.  For one, where is whatever this man was standing on?  I see his shoes neatly right under his body as though they were placed there, not kicked off in a violent struggle.

There are calculations I would think a professional hangman would use related to length of rope versus body weight.  The lighter the body, the longer the rope needed to break the neck or blood vessels to the head resulting in quick death.  This man could just reach up and grab the beam to stop the pain as he would be very slowly choking, not hanged as from the sudden drop which results in unconsciousness.  There is no drop, the rope is much too short so he would be slowly choking to death.

No broken neck, nothing to stand on, no emptying of bladder, no signs of struggle, rope too short, clothing too neat.

Still wish we had started that suicide thread for 2005 saw a huge number of deaths among very young people.  Far too many, IMO, for natural causes.

And I am sure there are those who will be quick to scold us for not respecting the privacy of this individual and his family but I think it more respectful to try to make sure there is nothing suspicious about this death that would indicate it was other than suicide.  Concern is not attacking nor being disrespectful.

Looks as though 2007 is off to as much crime as previous years and certainly more than we have been told in the past.

These tourists were robbed not once but twice from their room safe!

Quote:






Several friends just returned from Marriott Aruba...it was either the Surf or Ocean Club where they own a timeshare and I'm not sure which place it was.


Their friends that they traveled with (also timeshare owners at Marriott Aruba) were robbed from their in room safe not once during their week BUT TWICE.


First time they stole $500 in cash and a digital camera. Police came...very slowly they said, friend lost nearly a day on the beach w/ all the paperwork etc. Marriott reiumbursed (sic) them the cash and camera.


Then IT HAPPENED AGAIN.


This time supposedly there was $1500 in the safe and some other things. Same deal...police, lost day on the beach etc. But Marriott has not settled that robbery with them yet. This has never happened to them in all of their visits previously.


Marriott and police agree that it probably was an "inside" job. And that is all I know. Just posted this for informational purposes. Not bashing Marriott...it could happen anywhere. I love the Marriott. From the sound of it, they handled it approrpiately (sic) and most certainly want to get to the bottom of it as well.

I don't think this has been previously posted.  So many now it is difficult to keep up with them.  I wonder if writing crime by date on index cards would help.

Thanks Leslie and klaas.

Anna - Keeping up with all the crimes would be a full-time job!

And the automobile accidents ... most days the papers have several photos of cars that look pretty much demolished.

The second photograph of the latest suicide by hanging looks completely different that the first one.  If not for the stats on the victim, I would think it was a completely different scene.  In the second one, the rope does not appear short at all so the beam right about the head in the first photo must be from the angle as nothing is there in this second one.   Shocked  Question  Question  Question

And he does appear to be wearing gloves which is not apparent in the first photo we saw.  Oddly enough, the pants look dark in the second photo and light in the first in color.  It further appears he jumped off the top on the building with rope attached to the beam beside it.  That would give sufficient drop, etc. to cause instant or rapid death.  But his shoes are directly underneath and that is strange as they look placed.

This is a good example how the angle of a photo can make all the difference and the second photo look much more like an actual suicide than the first.  

I do believe that in most places suicide is against the law and therefore a crime so we should include as many of those as we find as well.  It is the taking of another life, homicide of a form, even it it is their own life they take.  

MsMarple, I hope you can post the new Summary at the top of a page so if anyone wanted to print it, it is all that would be on that page.  Do you think that is possible or does that even really matter>

The photo from the second article is of a LE officer...wearing gloves.

IMO...The first article photo looks like someone hung a dead body there.
I wonder what the connection to the restaurant is.....And if Camilo worked for TeleAruba also as did Brigitte.

Anna - in that second picture I don't think we are seeing the guy who committed suicide.  I think that's a police officer standing there.

Another Suicide

http://www.diario-aruba.com/2006/12/27/

PRODUCTOR DI PROGRAMA NA TELEARUBA A COMETE SUICIDIO


ORANJESTAD (AAN): Mundo di prensa audiovisual ta na luto na Aruba, ora cu un conocido productor di TV local a comete suicidio, Diamars merdia na su cas na Macuarima.

   Tabata algo banda di 3’or, cu e informe a drenta cu na Macuarima tin un persona ta horcando su mes e momento ey.  Pero ora cu Polis y Ambulans a yega ya caba ta laat.  Den patio net riba un cura di popchi, e dama Brigitte Christine Katelaan a comete e acto tristo aki, y asina autoridad a bin haye.

   Polis ni Ambulans por a haci nada mas.  Pero demas autoridad halto a ser yama, y Departamento Tecnico di Polis a bin haci su investigacion.  Banda di 3:30’or, Docter Brouwer a constata morto di e dama aki, kende a nace dia 3 di Mei 1970 na Hulanda.

   E dama di 36 aña aki ta trahando como Productor di programa na TeleAruba.  Anteriormente el a yega di funciona tambe na ATV, y prome cu esey tabata traha na Curaçao.

   E tin un yiu muher kende ta studiando actualmente na Hulanda, y sigur e noticia aki ta dal henter famia como un shock.

   Ningun hende a mira Brigitte den mal humor ultimo dianan aki.  Semper e tabata un persona energetico, cu yen plan pa bida, y yen di idea di creatividad pa su programanan.  TeleAruba mes a bay den luto desde Diamars atardi caba.

   Kico a pone Brigitte comete lo extremo aki?  Ningun detaye ta existi si acaso tin problema na trabao.  Pero ta varios storia a circula Diamars atardi y anochi, sinembargo e so sa di con el a haci esaki.

Tin indicacion cu el a laga un carta atras, pero autoridad no por a confirma esaki pa DIARIO.

   Na su famia, y coleganan di TV, Matutino DIARIO ta expresa su mas profundo palabra di condolencia.

THANK YOU SANDY! Unfortunately I steered you wrong - Leslie posted that those cases were in Holland. How I missed that I don't know; sorry. But thank you for Answering the Call; you're a sweetie.

I have spent most of the day going over Section A of Solo di Pueblo with the @#$%& online Pap translator.

Here's what I've got from there, and from Bon Dia's similar issue. These are incidents I don't *think* we've already got.

From Bon Dia 2006 “Year in Review” issue:
http://tinyurl.com/y2efz2

01/23/2006 – Man found dead in a boat near Marriot.

02/12/2006 – Alberto Augusto Peral (Peralta?) apparently killed by a gang.

05/23/2006
– Enrique Reynier Loefstop, 51, apparently beaten to death by his(?) child, with a baseball bat. Apparently an altercation over the son’s drug use.

??/??/2006 - 33-yr-old  Colombian sentenced for molesting an 11-yr-old mentally +++++++ girl. Dates mentioned in the article are November 2005 and June 2006; cannot determine when the incident(s) occurred. This case is not part of the SM 2005 Summary.

09/??/2006 – Mysterious death at Tanki Leendirt (near “Euro Kitchen”?) of chef/cook of Eagle Hotel. Cause of death unknown.


From Solo di Pueblo 2006 “Year in Review” issue, A section. Starting on Page 16:
http://tinyurl.com/y4uhlb

03/??/2006 – American tourist robbed and beaten in an alley in San Nicolas.
03/??/2006 – Dave Billy Aubert, 20, a local, killed in a hit & run.

06/??/2006 – Igor Richardson killed outside Las Vegas bar, San Nichols.
06/??/2006 – Man beaten with baseball bat at Malboro Ball Park.
06/??/2006 – Couple detained for something about a baby. What does “doodslag” mean? Couple’s initials: FCEF and FAPD. “Circumstancio poco strano.”

09/??/2006 – man convicted, sentenced to 24 yrs for killing of Pino Suarez. (When?)
09/??/2006 – Pascualito Geerman found dead at Baco Prins. Cause of death not noted.

10/??/2006 – over 3,000 kilos (over 6,613.8 lbs) of drugs seized.

<end>

Leslie - Re. the list you posted previously -

The "doktor" who committed suicide in January - didn't even give his name. I just decided to leave it out.

Rafael de Cuba - I didn't get that he was killed. What I think I got was that he/she underwent a sex change. !!! ????

Cornelius Bossers - I didn't get that he was killed, or that foul play is suspected.

Pedro Anterisijn - Same thing; didn't sound as though foul play suspected.

Pascualito Geerman - Same thing ...

I think those last 3 might have been included because of their local positions or popularity ??? Or because they were Dutch??  Twisted Evil

In General - The translator is so poor that I don't have a lot of confidence in it. If I have not included something, it's because I couldn't find a suggestion of foul play, or involvement of a tourist. There were some traffic fatalities that I didn't include.

Now, I will turn to updating the Summary. This will take a few days with all of these additions. Remember that I have to make sure we don't already have in some form or another.


I'll be looking forward to the summary.  Thanks msmarple.

Looks as though 2007 is off to as much crime as previous years and certainly more than we have been told in the past.

These tourists were robbed not once but twice from their room safe!

Quote:






Several friends just returned from Marriott Aruba...it was either the Surf or Ocean Club where they own a timeshare and I'm not sure which place it was.


Their friends that they traveled with (also timeshare owners at Marriott Aruba) were robbed from their in room safe not once during their week BUT TWICE.


First time they stole $500 in cash and a digital camera. Police came...very slowly they said, friend lost nearly a day on the beach w/ all the paperwork etc. Marriott reiumbursed (sic) them the cash and camera.


Then IT HAPPENED AGAIN.


This time supposedly there was $1500 in the safe and some other things. Same deal...police, lost day on the beach etc. But Marriott has not settled that robbery with them yet. This has never happened to them in all of their visits previously.


Marriott and police agree that it probably was an "inside" job. And that is all I know. Just posted this for informational purposes. Not bashing Marriott...it could happen anywhere. I love the Marriott. From the sound of it, they handled it approrpiately (sic) and most certainly want to get to the bottom of it as well.

http://www.aruba-bb.com/index.php


I don't think this has been previously posted.  So many now it is difficult to keep up with them.  I wonder if writing crime by date on index cards would help.

Thanks Anna for posting this.

As Diario asks, how did Aruba miss this one? (Interpol is investigating as a High Seas case.) Diario - also see rcharan@trinidadexpress.com .

Posted on the front page of Diario on January 8, 2007 but without the full article:

Another suicide in Aruba.  From what I can read this person was a cameraman for ATV Television in Aruba.  Looks like he was 25 years old:

Another Suicide

http://www.diario-aruba.com/2006/12/27/

PRODUCTOR DI PROGRAMA NA TELEARUBA A COMETE SUICIDIO


ORANJESTAD (AAN): Mundo di prensa audiovisual ta na luto na Aruba, ora cu un conocido productor di TV local a comete suicidio, Diamars merdia na su cas na Macuarima.

   Tabata algo banda di 3’or, cu e informe a drenta cu na Macuarima tin un persona ta horcando su mes e momento ey.  Pero ora cu Polis y Ambulans a yega ya caba ta laat.  Den patio net riba un cura di popchi, e dama Brigitte Christine Katelaan a comete e acto tristo aki, y asina autoridad a bin haye.

   Polis ni Ambulans por a haci nada mas.  Pero demas autoridad halto a ser yama, y Departamento Tecnico di Polis a bin haci su investigacion.  Banda di 3:30’or, Docter Brouwer a constata morto di e dama aki, kende a nace dia 3 di Mei 1970 na Hulanda.

   E dama di 36 aña aki ta trahando como Productor di programa na TeleAruba.  Anteriormente el a yega di funciona tambe na ATV, y prome cu esey tabata traha na Curaçao.

   E tin un yiu muher kende ta studiando actualmente na Hulanda, y sigur e noticia aki ta dal henter famia como un shock.

   Ningun hende a mira Brigitte den mal humor ultimo dianan aki.  Semper e tabata un persona energetico, cu yen plan pa bida, y yen di idea di creatividad pa su programanan.  TeleAruba mes a bay den luto desde Diamars atardi caba.

   Kico a pone Brigitte comete lo extremo aki?  Ningun detaye ta existi si acaso tin problema na trabao.  Pero ta varios storia a circula Diamars atardi y anochi, sinembargo e so sa di con el a haci esaki.

Tin indicacion cu el a laga un carta atras, pero autoridad no por a confirma esaki pa DIARIO.

   Na su famia, y coleganan di TV, Matutino DIARIO ta expresa su mas profundo palabra di condolencia.
 

Meant to add, here is the complete article on the cameraman in Solo di Pueblo:

Look at his hands,no blood from a struggle,No sign of soiled light pants,how did he get up there,and he doesn't shows signs of brutal struggle(no Broken Neck)just an observation/when you have a hanging,you see how brutal they can be.Cat


His head seems too "upright".

Yep very interresting observations.  Does not look right to me either.
