The president of the group Hispanics Across America slammed Mount Kisco authorities for rushing with their judgment in the case of the Guatemalan immigrant who was found dead Tuesday.
According to Fernando Mateo, police rushed to conclude there was no foul play in the death of 36-year-old Emilio Ramirez deJesus Buezo even before the investigation was complete.
Buezo?s half-naked body was discovered in his backyard on Maple Avenue in Mount Kisco. Some neighbors say they saw the man covered in bruises and blood, but this information was not confirmed.
Both the police and the county medical examiner reached the conclusion that there is no evidence to believe Buezo was murdered.
Mateo, however, insists it is too early to make such a definitive claim.
Buezo is the sixth Guatemalan immigrant to die in the area under unusual circumstances in recent years. Three of the previous cases have been ruled homicides.
Now, Mateo wants Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore to step in and investigate this latest death. A spokesman for DiFiore confirmed that her office is looking into the case.
Buezo's brother, Alvaro Buezo, says he is not accusing the Mount Kisco police or anyone else of any wrongdoing in the case. He says his main concern now is to transport his brother?s body back to their native Guatemala.
