    Investigators believe the pair may have tried to take photos anyway and ended up being attacked with items including an air fryer, an exercise weight and a piece of wood, authorities said. Loat’s friend, James Jackson, managed to escape and was later treated at a hospital, according to police.
    Loat was reported missing that day, but the search for the Wilmington resident was halted Sunday after cops found the charred remains of a body in Vega Baja, a town about 20 miles west of San Juan. The island’s Institute of Forensic Sciences examined the victim’s fingerprints and confirmed they were Loat’s, saying he died of a gunshot wound before the attackers set his body on fire, according to local media reports.

    He was beaten, shot and killed, and then had his body burned for taking pictures while doing a d*** trade in one of the most dangerous parts of PR?

    I'm not saying anything, but he's either dumb as bricks or the story's not adding up at all. I'm kinda leaning towards the latter.

    Yeah from what they’re saying they didn’t want pictures taking at all, and it wasn’t even a big d*** trade it was weed there’s been at least 4 major murders in san juan this week alone

    “ They were then trying to take photographs on an area in La Perla after people told them not to and a dispute broke out”

    The newspaper reported that Loat and Jackson were travelling in a 2020 Nissan Rouge bus at around 6 p.m. on Sunday when they got out to take photos and videos.

    But they were then surrounded by a group of people who told them that they could not take photos because this could attract police to the area, Prima Hora reported.

    Tensions heightened with a heated discussion which turned physical, seeing five vehicles colliding during the chaos, the newspaper added.

    Well... what the actual f*** did he expect? Multiple residents telling this genius NOT to heat up the place by taking pictures (where d*** deals happen), but he still did anyways.

    The “law” and “what’s right” doesn’t hold the same weight in every part of the world.

    Tourists need to understand that, save their ass, and stay on a resort and enjoy their f***ing time.

    It really isn't. I wouldn't even go to hoods in the states asking for d**** in random places let alone take pictures of that s***. South America don't play that s***.

  • When asked about the incident during a news conference Tuesday, Puerto Rico Gov. Pedro Pierluisi lamented the killing but said tourists should also follow the law so they don’t expose themselves to dangerous situations

    “Violence is never justified, but my message to those who come from outside is that this is a society of law and order where controlled substances are controlled, not legal,” he reportedly said.

    Even the Gov knows whats up

    James Jackson, the tourist who managed to escape the scene, reportedly told his mother that they were simply “touring” the area.

    They’re making it sound like a d*** deal gone bad. That they went there for d**** and got what they deserved, but that’s not the case,” Jackson’s mother said.

    The woman said her son assured her that no photos were taken and that no one got out of the vehicle or disrespected residents.

    “Seven men surrounded the car, but it was a very narrow street and they could not turn,” the woman told the newscast. According to her, the youths accelerated, crashed into a vehicle and were trapped.

    The authorities are trying to cover it up and came up with a bullshit story because in fact they are corrupted as well

    The first story is bullshit they don’t even have suspects, they run up to people cars all the time in those areas... the cops are f***ing lying a cop even seen one of the guys on the floor in bad condition and didn’t even rush to help another US tourist had to force him to give the man help...

    True. Sometimes Americans (even tho pr is basically a state) think they are tough af when they enter different countries...like they won’t get touched.

    Edit: idk if that pertains to this situation tho.
