Man Calls OIJ To Pick Him Up For Murder

The man was a suspect in the murder of a bartender in Puerto Viejo de Limon on Sunday

Letting his conscience get the better of him, called police to let them know where he was to pick him up.

Q COSTA RICA – From the strange and pretty rare in Costa Rica, but true department, a man whose conscience got the better of him, on Thursday morning called the OIJ (Judicial Police) to tell them where he was and to come pick him up, telling officials that he had killed a bartender last weekend.

The suspect was identified by his last name Hanbelamt, 26 years of age.

Indeed the man was being sought by the OIJ for the murder of Irwin Randall Lewis Allen, 32 years old, who early Sunday morning was killed in the El Mango bar in Puerto Viejo de Limon.

Irwin, who was Nicaraguan, had been working as a bartender at the bar for the last four years. During a heated discussion with several men (reasons that are still being investigated) Irwin tried to stop the fight and threw out a friend of Hanbelamt.

As the story goes, during a heated discussion between several men (reasons that are still being investigated) Irwin tried to stop the fight and threw out a friend of Hanbelamt.

Furious, Hanbelamt pulled out a gun and shot Irwin three times, where he died later at the Tony Facio hospital in downtown Limon (more than an hour away from the bar).

Hanbelamt is now in custody facing charges of murder. The Fiscalía (Public Prosecutor’s Office) pointed out that the man has a criminal history that includes robbery and threats to authorities.
