The assassin of Haitian journalist was a Jan 12, 2010 prison escapee

On February 10, 2011, Jean-Louis Richard Charles, a Haitian journalist whose last job was at Radio Kiskeya in Haiti, was attacked and assassinated by three robbers as he had just withdrawn 40.000 gourdes (about US $1,000.00) from a bank. Two of them had time to flee, while the latter, Jean Wilner Duperval, was shot by a plainclothes policeman.

The killer of Jean-Louis Richard Charles, known as Jean Wilner Duperval, was an escapee from prison, confirms Frantz Lerebours, spokesman for the National Police of Haiti.   The assassin had escaped from prison during the earthquake of January 12, 2010 and had a criminal record very busy, according to the Commissioner Lerebours.
