Once again, a brutal murder in Haiti; young U.S. citizen kidnapped

murder 2
Natacha Cavalier, 22, was found dead at home early wednesday, January 6, 2009 after her young daughter, aged 3, alerted neighbors in Brochette 97, a neighborhood of the city of Carrefour, adjacent and south of Haiti's capital city of Port-au-Prince. Her live-in boyfriend, Yves Destin, who is from the town of L'Asile, southwestern of Haiti, according to police, is a prime suspect. Police believe Ms. Cavalier was murdered with the help of a harmer. A few weeks ago, according to neighbors, Mr. Destin set Ms. Cavalier's clothes, including the ones she was wearing, on fire to prevent her from leaving him.
