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.
