GlobeTracker| Authorities in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic has arrested Jorge Puello, the fugitive who acted as the third lawyer for the 10 US missionaries accused of kidnapping 33 Haitian children. All the missionaries but Laura Silsby have been released. Silsby remains in jail in Haiti, as the judge explores her motives in Haiti.
Puello is wanted for trafficking women and children in the US and El Salvador. To date, no public information ties Laura Silsby and Jorge Puello together before the group’s arrest in Haiti, where they were taking children to a proposed orphanage in Santo Domingo.
