PG police on the hunt for suspected murderer

Yesterday, we told you about the murder of 36-year-old Lascelle Martinez in Punta Gorda Town.  Police say it appears to be a love triangle gone wrong and jealousy the motive.  According to police reports, their investigations revealed that Simeon Lino was driving his red pick-up truck on VOA Road when he came across  Tianne Figueroa, his ex-girlfriend. Martinez exited the vehicle and inflicted stab wounds to her left leg and left shoulder. Police say it was an act of jealous rage.  When he was finished stabbing Figueroa, Lino then went looking for Martinez and found him at his home on Victoria Street in Punta Gorda Town. There, he stabbed Martinez multiple times to his left side.  Both victims were transported to the Punta Gorda Hospital; however,  Martinez succumbed to his injuries just after 1 o’clock on Wednesday afternoon.  Figueroa was transported to the Southern Regional Hospital where she is listed in a stable condition. Police are looking for Simeon Lino pending investigations. Lascelle Martinez was the son of ex UDP minister Eden Martinez and a member of  the musical group, “Coolie Rebels”..vlcsnap-2017-05-18-00h01m42s190 vlcsnap-2017-05-18-00h01m35s456 vlcsnap-2017-05-18-00h01m19s888 vlcsnap-2017-05-18-00h01m08s783 vlcsnap-2017-05-18-00h01m01s857 vlcsnap-2017-05-18-00h00m47s504
