Curacao, Aruba, Antilles Who Murdered Helman WielsCuracao ChroniclesPublished On: Tue, May 7th, 2013Columns / Featured | By Jacob Gelt DekkerWho did it??Was it a hired assassin who killed politician HelminWiels or a duo with a grudge? Was it politically or otherwise motivated, like revenge, “crimepassionel” or ordered execution by the criminal underworld ? Was 5-5-5— May 5th at 5o’clock pm with 5 bullets— a 10-10-10- joke with a strong hidden political message?Curacao has an avalanche of questions, one thing is only certain, the harsh often random andaccording to many often undeserved criticism of a political leader will no longer echo throughthe airways. He was silenced and there is no successor in sight.Murders have but one objective, to change the expected course of the fore seeable future.According to killers’ logic, life will be unbearable as long as their victim is alive, so eliminationis the only option. Social media offered many scenarios for the murders, often outrageous andextreme. Herewith a short summary of the most sensible onces.Scenario 1.The life of killers would be dramatically changed if their victim had stayed alive. Somehow the
victim was about to reveal information or commit certain acts that would have effectedconspirators existence dramatically. So eliminating that threat was a logical action from theirperspective . Therefore a thorough understanding of the motive will inevitably lead to thosewho ordered the killing.Apparently the assassination must have taken ample time of preparation in order to beexecuted in such a fast, efficient and effective way.A few considerations:- Finding, recruiting and rewarding willing, gullible, eager and reliable professional hit menmust have taken a considerable amount of time and careful maneuvering. Going to the YellowPages or advertising on eBay does not get you a bunch of professional killers.- Studying the victim’s ways and habits required insiders’ knowledge and cooperation.Infiltration into the victim’s inner circle, eavesdropping, monitoring, valuing and digestingusable information must have been tedious, very time consuming and highly suspicious to thevictim’s protection and body guards. An information leak in the victim’s immediatesurroundings was a must.- Obtaining weapons and a get-away car, setting up temporary hide outs and safe places as afall back position and eventually vast , instant escape routes to the mainland with passports,visa, airline tickets, private planes or vast boats etc.. required extensive and lengthypreparations .- Since the victim was a well know politician, a public outcry and full scale investigation wasinevitable and had to be anticipated . The offenders must have had access to extensivesophistication in every way and fashion, large amounts of cash money, cover-ups and abilitiesto stick it out for at least the initial period of weeks or even months. In case of an internationalmanhunt, it could even take years.In a small community like Curacao planning effort, preparatory action and suspicious behaviorcannot go unnoticed since it involved a large number of people. It requires a well-organizedteam of accomplishes, a gang, and access to large amounts of untraceable cash.Note: A reward by public prosecutors as incentive could entice minor players of the conspiringnetwork to come forward and spill the beans. Crowd sourcing by investigators is inevitably themeans with the greatest efficacy.Scenario 2.
The motive was revenge with an attitude of “no matter what happens next.”Revenge stemming from a soured personal or professional relationship, love affair or frompolitical idealism are rare but do happen.Such offenders have one weakness, they like to witness their revenge, do not removethemselves from the scene and relish in their success . Almost without exception they bragabout their ‘heroic’ deed sooner or later, the story is just too large not to be shared. As soonas public attention ebbs away, such offenders yearn for new attention and make blatantmistakes that will inevitably expose them.Presently , the general public believes in a complex conspiracy by the lottery mafia of theCaribbean like scenario 1. The most frequently heard motive is that last week Wiels wasabout to disclose names of lottery fraudsters.Of course that could have played a role but only as a trigger incident. The lead time ofpreparation to commit this execution was far too long to make fraud accusation the one andonly underlying cause.My theory is that a lengthy, slow growing conflict caused and created the assassinationconspiracy. The most likely offenders should be identified in circles where all the beforementioned ingredients are readily available. Thus the offenders can easily be found by closelystudying Wiels’ long time relationships especially those that soured over time.Object1
