Panama | Case Information Lacking. Case lacking information is essentially a closed case. mention request for information leading to the murder. mention of family left behind. mention of detective or sheriff presenting the facts. mention of probable cause of his death, shot to the head? This is not news, this is suppression and is why investigations lead to nowhere. How will the elite culprits of money laundering ever get apprehended by the law? Panama catches the bad guys and throws them in a cage with little to nothing to wash or eat. The elite get nice cells and a little recreation outside the cell with pictures to send home to friends and families...the state fund looters or...cookie jar theft baby crimes. Money...that what it will get you, respect! Next...a former Ricardo Martinelli and U.S.A. Trump re-election. hams. United States...MAGA Hats and a picture of Trump and family!
