Haitian man lynched in the Dominican Republic

Haitian man lynched in the Dominican Republic

A Haitian man was hanged in a tree in a park in this northern city in the Dominican Republic

Additional information out of Santiago, Dominican Republic, where a 19 year-old shoeshine man known as Tulile was found hanged, is that the young man was beaten. The incident, in which the young man's hands and feet were bound, is thought of widely as being part of a hate crime. Evidence to suggest this would be the burning of a Haitian flag by DR protesters around the same time as the news of Tulile's death broke. Still, the police are quick to say the motive wasn't racially related; they say, instead, that Tulile may have been killed for a winning 6,000 pesos lottery ticket.
