A man accused of rape shoots teenager in Caracas
A man identified as Wilmer Joseph Maestre, 19, accused of having raped and murdered three women in Caracas, has stricken again. Maestre shot a boy in a low-income sector in Caracas late on Tuesday.
Police sources confirmed that Maestre is hiding in the area, although some people said they spotted the suspect in other sectors.
A picture of Maestre has been disseminated via social networks after he killed two women on January 25.
The man tried to rape a boy, 15, on February 5, but after failing to do so, he brutally battered the victim.
Luis Jiménez Alfaro seems to have hidden under the rocks. The last time he was seen was on April 2006 walking calmly around Simón Bolívar International Airport of Maiquetía, located nearby Caracas. At that time, more than five tons of cocaine arrived in Mexico in an airplane which took off from Venezuela, and his name featured as a missing piece of the puzzle of one of the most massive drug shipments that has been witnessed in the Western Hemisphere.
