A man stabbed his ex-wife to death on Malecon Avenue in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. The young woman was reportedly stabbed 17 times and died on the spot. Her killer ex-husband was shocked by what he had done himself and did not try to run away. Outraged locals didn’t take very kindly to his deed and delivered occasional kicks and slaps to him. None of it could bring the girl back, though.
Puerto Plata is a major tourist hub in the Dominican Republic and Malecon is the busy boulevard along the sea shore where both tourists and locals hang out. The stabbing took place on a rainy day so there probably weren’t too many tourists around, but it’s still rather shocking that such horrific crime would happen in such a visible and significant place for country’s economy.
There are two videos of the aftermath. The first video is better due to camera being held the right way. Notice the knife used in the commission of murder still next to the victim:
Second video is longer and captures more of the (not so brutal) street justice, but it was filmed by an Iphonetard so it’s vertically oriented:
