14ymedio, Havana, December 1, 2023 — Two people, aged 27 and 36, were arrested this Thursday in the Malengro neighborhood for the alleged murder of Reynier Silegas Ramírez. The Cuban choral conductor, 43, was found dead last Tuesday inside his home in Barrière de Paris (France). The body, according to local media, showed “signs of violence,” so the crime was handled as a homicide from the beginning.
The authorities located the 27-year-old suspect after tracking Silegas Ramírez’s cell phone. Investigations indicate that this person helped the murderer, a 36-year-old Brazilian, to hide the evidence of the homicide. So the young man is being prosecuted for “covering up a theft.” The Toulouse Prosecutor’s Office is requesting “preventive detention” of the other person arrested, who is accused of “murder and robbery.”
The authorities have two hypotheses about the murder. One of them alludes to “a violent sexual game that allegedly got out of control”; the second is based on a discussion of the Cuban choral director with the Brazilian he met through
