PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (sentinel.ht) – The bloody and nearly headless body of Businessman Hans Allan Theophile, 75, Director of InselAir Haiti, was found early Tuesday morning at his office located at Dantes Destouches (Rue Pavee) in Port-au-Prince.
Initial information obtained from police sources suggest Theophile was killed with a self-inflicted wound to the head from a 12-gauge shotgun. A justice of the peace and forensics officials were there until midday where they conducted an investigation on the spot according to officials.
Hans Allan Theophile is the former director of the ALM Antillean Airlines, that no longer serves Haiti, and director, until his death, of InselAir airlines.
Theophile was jailed on July 2004 for alleged involvement in the assassination of Mortet Didier, Director of Air France on June 24, 2004 in Port-au-Prince.
With other prisoners, Theophile had escaped from prison after serious incidents that marked the fall of Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 2004. Taken, he was later granted a judicial liberty.
