FIRST PART of CLA (Reading)
DEATH OF MAN IN PORT-AU-PRINCE HOSPITAL

PATROL REPORT
On 21 October 2010 at 21.00 hours, United Nations Police (UNPOL) Patrol Team “Alfa”, received a call from the duty officer of UN Team Site “West” in regard to the death of a local man who had just passed away in the Port-au-Prince hospital. The information was received from a duty physician in the hospital. According to him, the death was the result of a knife injury. Haitian National Police (HNP) were also notified and an investigation team was dispatched to the Hospital. UNPOL Patrol Team “Alfa” headed by Oliver Johnson, proceeded to the hospital as well.
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 1
Reference is made to the case of death of a local man in the Port-au-Prince hospital reported at 21.00 hrs. Upon UNPOL Team’s arrival at the hospital at 21.15 hours, the local police team consisting of two (2) investigators was present and had just started interviewing the attending physician, Carlos Pereira.  The physician advised that the adult black male, later identified as Raoul Cocote, a 32- year- old Haitian citizen and a practicing attorney, was taken at the Port au Prince Hospital via ambulance at 20.40 hours. The ambulance was called by a woman reportedly living with a victim. The patient arrived unconscious. The initial examination revealed a protruding knife injury with the knife left in the victim’s chest. The doctor proceeded to provide emergency medical assistance but the victim passed away at 20.50 hours. In the hospital, Haitian police inspector, Mr. Arthur King, collected the knife, the victim’s white shirt with blood stains and the victim’s driver’s license.  UNPOL Team along with the Haitian police team decided to go to the victim’s residence located at 53 Daiton Street, Apartment 7A.
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 2
Reference is made to the case of the death of a local man in the Port-au-Prince hospital reported at 21.00 hrs. At 22:30 hours the joint UN and Haitian police team arrived at the victim’s residence and made contact with Ms. Mia Teto, the victim’s girlfriend.  HNP Inspector King obtained a written statement from her. She seemed to be a primary and the only witness at that moment. Ms. Teto, a black female Haitian, 25 years old, stated that earlier that day, at 20.00 hours she heard a knock on the door of the residence where she lived with her boyfriend Raoul Cocote, and then Ms. Teto proceeded to open the door.  Once the door was opened, two subjects forced their way into the residence.  The two subjects pushed her toward the living room where Raoul Cocote was sitting.  The first subject was described as approximately 1 m 75 cm tall wearing blue jeans, a red shirt, military boots and a black mask. The second culprit was approximately 10 cm taller wearing black pants, a blue shirt and a white mask. When in the room, she stumbled over a bookshelf and fell down to the floor. The visitors had an argument with the victim and demanded to know where he hid his money. When Raoul refused to tell them where he kept his money, the shorter subject in the black mask proceeded to strike the victim with his hands. Raoul fell down on the floor and the same man continued beating him, repeatedly asking him for some hidden money. Meanwhile, the second subject wearing the white mask was searching the room. After 10-15 minutes of extensive searching, the second man failed to find any valuable things, which got him upset. He produced a knife and stabbed the victim two times in his chest, leaving the knife in his body. Mia Teto was approximately three meters away and observed the attack. After they stopped attacking Raoul, the first subject threatened that if she called  the police, they would return and kill her.  Then both subjects ran out of the residence.  She observed the knife protruding from her boyfriend’s chest, and at about 20.15 hours she called the Port au Prince Hospital, which dispatched an ambulance that arrived in about 15-20 minutes and took Raoul Cocote to the Hospital.
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 3
While HNP inspector King was obtaining a written statement from Mia Teto, the second HNP inspector, Ms. Miranda Gaston, processed the crime scene, where she collected blood splatter in the living room area. When examining the outside area, she also identified size 10 footprints on the floor which could have been left by military or uniform boots. She was also approached by a neighbor, Mr. Jimmy Hodari living on the floor above the victim’s apartment, a 35-year-old local vendor, who provided additional information on the case.

NARRATIVE
Referring to the homicide case of Haitian male, Raoul Cocote, a 32-year old male who died as a result of knife injuries inflicted by two unidentified men on 21 October 2010, the HNP Inspector Miranda Gaston, while visiting the victim’s residence at 53 Daiton Street, took a statement from a neighbor Jimmy Hodari, living on the floor above the victim’s apartment.

The neighbor knew the victim and his girlfriend. He stated that they had been living together for about a year and were going to get married. Raoul was a practicing attorney and they were very financially stable. However, for the last 3 months the situation changed: Raoul looked quite depressed and Jimmy could hear frequent quarrels between Raoul and Mia. One day, when Raoul was away for work, Mia was sitting outside the house and Jimmy joined her. In a conversation he learnt that they were facing serious financial problems as Raoul had borrowed money from some criminals in the amount of 10 thousand dollars to rent a bigger apartment, and was not able to return it. They threaten to kill Raoul if he did not cover the debt. In addition, Raoul seemed to start taking narcotics which made him depressed. Mia thought that those criminals had made Raoul drug addicted. They demanded that Raoul became a drug courier, and this would release him from his debt. Raoul disagreed but he felt he did not have a choice. However, a couple of days before he was killed, Raoul said that he was expecting good money from a case he was dealing with, and believed this would resolve his problem.

Regarding the day of the attack, Jimmy stated that approximately at 20.00 hours he heard a noise and loud voices coming from the second floor directly under his apartment. He went out to the small stairway and saw the door to Raoul’s apartment opened. He also noticed a black BMW vehicle standing near the apartment building entrance with the engine running. He managed to see one guy sitting in the driver’s seat. According to Jimmy, the driver had a huge scar over his face and he was wearing black fingerless gloves. His face seemed familiar to Jimmy who thought he might have seen him in a local bar called the “Blue Lagoon” where Jimmy played pool with his friends a couple of times. Jimmy also noticed that the right rear light of the vehicle was broken.  There were no registration plates on the car.

In about 15 minutes he saw two guys running out of the second floor and rushing down the stairs. He got scared and moved back to his flat. After the whole group left he heard a woman crying downstairs.
DIALOGUE
Inspector Gaston:
Good evening, Sir. May I ask you several questions in regards to the incident, which occurred in the apartment on the second floor?
Jimmy Hodari:
Of course.
Inspector Gaston:
Do you know your neighbors living on the floor right under your apartment?
Jimmy Hodari:
Yes, of course. They are a young couple. The man’s name is Raoul Cocote and his girlfriend’s name is Mia Teto.
Inspector Gaston:
How long have they lived together?
Jimmy Hodari:
As far as I remember, for about a year or so. They were going to get married.
Inspector Gaston:
What can you say about them? Did you notice anything unusual in their lives recently?
Jimmy Hodari:
Raoul is a practicing attorney and they were well off. However, for the last 3 months the situation had changed.  Raoul looked quite depressed and he and Mia had frequent quarrels.
Inspector Gaston:
Do you know the reason?
Jimmy Hodari:
One day I chatted with Mia and she told me that Raoul had borrowed money from some criminals in the amount of 10 thousand dollars to rent a bigger apartment, and it looked as if he was not able to return it. They threatened to kill Raoul if he did not cover the debt.
Inspector Gaston:
I see.
Jimmy Hodari:
In addition, Raoul seemed to start taking narcotics which made him depressed. Mia thought that those criminals had made Raoul drug addicted. They demanded that Raoul become their drug courier guaranteeing him drugs and debt-free. Raoul did not agree but it seemed he did not have a choice. However, a couple of days before he was killed Raoul said that he was expecting good money from a case he was dealing with, and this would resolve the problem.
Inspector Gaston:
What can you say of what happened in Raoul’s apartment?
Jimmy Hodari:
At approximately 20.00 hours I heard a noise and loud voices coming from the second floor right under my flat. I went out to the small stairway and saw the door to Raoul’s apartment opened.
Inspector Gaston:
What else did you notice?
Jimmy Hodari:
I also noticed a black BMW vehicle standing near the apartment house entrance with a running engine.
Inspector Gaston:
Was there anybody in the car?
Jimmy Hodari:
I could see one guy sitting in the driver’s seat. And he had a huge scar over his face. He kept his hands on the steering wheel and I could see he was wearing black fingerless gloves. I don’t know him but I believe I saw this guy a couple of times in a bar called the “Blue Lagoon”.
Inspector Gaston:
Did you notice a registration plate of the vehicle?
Jimmy Hodari:
There were no registration plates on the car. But I could see that the right rear lamp of the vehicle was broken.

Inspector Gaston:
Did you manage to see whom he was with?
Jimmy Hodari:
Unfortunately not. When they left Raoul’s apartment I got scared and moved back into my apartment. A few seconds later I only heard the sound of the car driving away and soon after that I heard Mia’s crying.
Inspector Gaston:
Thank you very much for this very useful information. We may contact you again for some additional details.
Jimmy Hodari:
No problems, Inspector.
