Murder of U.S. citizen in Roatan's East End

Residents on the largest Honduran bay island of Roatan are in shock this week after the brutal murder of an American resident on the island. American-born Richard Michael Bougerie was killed instantly by a single shot wound to the head on Monday afternoon. Bany Umanzor the investigating officer on the case said that Mr. Bougerie left his home on Roatan’s East End at around 1:08 Monday afternoon. Mr. Bougerie was believed to have been shot dead minutes later in his car between 1:15 and 1:30, just meters from his home. Bougerie’s wife Barbara heard the shots but remained unaware of the tragedy until locals discovered his body a short time afterwards and alerted the police. Bougerie was a relatively new resident on the island and was the victim of a feud between him and his neighbors. The feud began after Bougerie’s neighbor Clay Dilver who was previously employed by Bougerie was accused of stealing silver and jewelry belonging to Bougerie’s wife. Dilver was subsequently found guilty of the theft and was imprisoned in La Ceiba in September of last year. According to Honduran police the neighboring family who were relatives of Dilver began threatening the Bougerie family shortly after Dilver’s imprisonment. Full Story
