Vildo Westby captured in Mexico; Ayuso family feels vindicated

On Friday, December 8th, news broke on the detainment of Vildo Westby in Las Choapas, Veracruz Mexico. Westby had been on the run since February of this year following the brutal murder of beloved island activist 44-year-old Felix Ayuso. According to Ayuso’s family members, they are grateful for the support the community has rendered and pleased that justice will finally be served.

Reports from family members indicate that an anonymous tip led to the discovery of Westby’s hideout. The tip came from a resident of Las Choapas who alerted the family almost a week ago. Since then, family members traveled to Las Choapas to follow up on the tip which led to the successful apprehension of Westby by Mexican police. “We are overjoyed that he has been captured. Felix’s murderer will face justice,” said one of Ayuso’s sisters, Carmen Eiley. She further indicated that a $13,000 reward has been given to the person that tipped them off.

Accused Murderer of Felix Ayuso Nabbed in Mexico

He has been on the run for more than six months, but tonight wanted man Vildo Westby is in police custody. Westby was the prime suspect in the murder of HIV/Aids activist Felix Ayuso Junior, stabbed to death inside his home in San Pedro in February of this year. Police had issued a wanted poster for the murder suspect and Ayuso’s family and residents offered a ten thousand dollar reward. Shortly after the killing, Westby skipped across the border to Mexico. It wasn’t until this week that he was picked up by Mexican authorities. Ayuso’s family told Ambergris Today that they received an anonymous tip from someone in Los Choapas, Veracruz in Mexico. The informant, who had seen the wanted Interpol poster and Justice for Felix Facebook Page, told the family that Westby was living and working in Los Choapas. Ayuso’s family immediately traveled to Mexico and spent several days scouting the neighborhood where Westby was reportedly living. The family disclosed that Westby was working as a baker under a fake name “Alejandro Lorenzo Cruz”. And with the help of the Mexican Police Department, Westby was apprehended on Thursday. They told the Ambergris Today that Westby’s deportation is being processed and expected to be handed over to local authorities in the coming days. The informant was rewarded with thirteen thousand dollars – which was raised through fundraising and donations from family and friends on the Island.

Family Says Wanted Westby Captured In Mexico, Cops Clueless

Last week Friday, news broke in Belize that a man wanted for a San Pedro murder had been found in Mexico. Vildo Westby - who is wanted for killing 44 year old Islander Felix Ayuso in February, was reportedly captured in Mexico on the strength of an Interpol Alert from Belize.

The San Pedro Sun quotes Ayuso's family as saying that they got a tip from someone in Las Choapas, Mexico near Veracruz to say that he was hiding out. Family members tell the Sun they travelled there "which led to the successful apprehension of Westby," and that a $13,000 reward had been given to the person that tipped them off.

So far, so good - meaning the only question left is when he would be deported to Belize. But today the police told us they have had no official confirmation that he has been caught:..

ASP Alejandro Cowo, OC - CIB
"We have been communicating with Interpol Mexico. We know that we have shared a wanted poster with him and a warrant for his arrest, however, we have not established or confirmed yet from them that if indeed he has been arrested there. We have heard rumors that he was detained somewhere in Mexico, but we are waiting for confirmation from Interpol Mexico to verify that information with us."

Reporter
"So no confirmation as yet?"

ASP Alejandro Cowo
"No confirmation as yet. It's just a rumor that we have been hearing."

The family told the San Pedro Sun that Westby has been processed for immediate deportation to Belize where he will face murder charges from the San Pedro Police Department. Cowo would only say that in the event of his return, they would want to question him.

Has Vildo Westby Been Captured? Police Await Confirmation

On Friday, we reported that an arrest had been made by Mexican authorities in connection with the brutal slaying of San Pedro resident Felix Ayuso back in February.  While Vildo Westby has been on the lam from the Belize Police Department since that incident over six months ago, details of his detention in Los Choapas, Veracruz, Mexico are yet to be confirmed.  That’s because local authorities say that despite an all-points bulletin being issued for Westby’s arrest, they are still awaiting word from Interpol to verify the facts of the report.

ASP Alejandro Cowo, O.C., C.I.B., Eastern Division 

“I know that he is a suspect for that murder there.  We have been communicating with Interpol Mexico.  We know that we have shared a wanted poster with him and a warrant for his arrest, however, we have not established or confirmed yet from them that if indeed he has been arrested there.  We have heard rumors that he was detained somewhere in Mexico, but we are waiting for confirmation from Interpol Mexico to verify that information with us.”

“So no confirmation as yet?”

ASP Alejandro Cowo

“No confirmation as yet.  It’s just a rumor that we have been hearing.”

Ayuso’s family in San Pedro notified Ambergris Today that had received an anonymous tip informing that Westby was reportedly living and working in Los Choapas.  The family journeyed to that location where they purportedly found the suspect working as a baker under the assumed name Alejandro Lorenzo Cruz.  With assistance from Mexican police, they were said to have apprehended Westby on Thursday.  Again, the Belize Police Department is awaiting confirmation on this report.

Which Westby?

And in a final spot of police news tonight, we have an update on murder suspect Vildo Westby.

Westby - who is wanted for killing 44 year old Islander Felix Ayuso in February, was reportedly captured in Las Choapas, Mexico near Vereacruz two weeks ago. But, initially, police said they had no confirmation of that.

Today, they acknowledged that someone has been caught, but said he has not been conclusively identified as Vildo Westby:...

Is the person held by Mexican authorities Vildo Westby?

Earlier this month, Love News received information indicating that Vildo Westby, who is wanted by Belize Police for questioning in the murder of 44-year-old Felix Ayuso, was in custody of Mexican authorities. We understood at the time that he was expected to be handed over to law enforcement officers in Belize. Last week Monday, Belize Police said only that they are still trying to confirm what they referred to as “rumors”. Today, ACP Joseph Myvett shared a bit more on the matter.

ACP. Joseph Myvett, Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch:

“We are in communication with the Mexican authorities and they are requiring further information in order to determine the identity of the person whom they have in custody. So we have not confirmed his identity as yet that he is the person in custody.”

44-year-old Felix Ayuso was killed in early February in San Pedro. His body was found with multiple stab wounds. At the time Police said there was no sign of forced entry at his home. Shortly after the murder, Police issued a wanted bulletin for Westby.

MX Embassy is still furious the fix was in for Nanes-Schnitzer to jump bail. They wanted him extradited back to MX to face charges of fraud and embezzlement. He stole from Belizeans as well. Hoping that does not impede our request.
