White House Casino Dealer Killed, Two Others Wounded

October 31, 2008

Two gunmen shot and killed a woman this week execution-style and critically injured her sister and another woman after the assailants kidnapped the three, all dealers at the White House Hotel’s casino.

According to the account in the daily Al Día, the two men were waiting outside of the casino, in San Antonio de Escazú, west of San José, when the three got off work and into Arelis Marín’s car just after 1 a.m.

After following the car for 200 meters, the men shot at the women’s car, forcing them to stop and get into their car.

For the next hour, the two men held the women hostage before shooting them.

White House business director Ernesto Solórzano said the hotel is offering a reward of up to $12,500 for information. Witnesses can call police at 800-8000-645.
