Boxer Felix Verdejo is going to jail.
This all started last Thursday when Verdejo’s mistress Keishla Rodríguez Ortiz paid him a visit to let him and his wife know that she was pregnant and the baby was his. She even took a pregnancy test to prove she wasn’t lying. That was the last time Ortiz was seen.
She didn’t show up at work on Friday and that made her family very nervous. They filed a missing person’s report and told the cops the last person she saw was Verdejo. On Saturday a badly beat up body of a woman was found in a Lagoon that eventually was positively IDed as Ortiz. This is when it starts to look really bad for Verdejo.
Here is what the FBI said happened.
A criminal complaint filed by the FBI accuses Verdejo of punching Rodriguez in the face and injecting her with a syringe filled with an unidentified substance bought at a public housing complex. It alleges that he then bound her arms and feet with wire and tied a heavy block to her before throwing her off a bridge at 8:30 a.m. Thursday.
The complaint states that Verdejo then shot at Rodriguez’s body as he stood on the bridge. The complaint says a witness it did not identify helped Verdejo kidnap and kill Rodriguez.
The car used in the murder a Dodge Durango was found at Verdejo’s mom house. Verdejo used his own car to commit the murder.
Cell phone records along with traffic cam video all connect Verdejo to the murder along with the witness who gave a first hand account of what happened.
The FBI has been assisting local authorities on the case.
Believe it or not, this isn’t uncommon in Puerto Rico.
