    "Today Creighton’s body was found, and as per our sources the strong suspicion is that he was a victim of a kidnap- for- hire scheme hatched by someone very close to him. Cause of death is yet to be established. Creighton’s wife allegedly had the ransom money wired to a family member of hers, reportedly the lesser $750,000 request.
    The OIJ will be investigating further, and report their conclusions in the coming week. Fellow sportsbook operation owners in Costa Rica have expressed their sadness and regret at Creighton’s tragic death." source CR Newpaper

    I'm now hearing that declaring him dead may be premature. Stay tuned...

    The news stories all mention that his wife sent the ransom to a family member. That's odd, no?

    i saw those reports but they are pretty vague and is it possible if it was his wife she could be tht dumb? i mean if so, she would prolly be locked up already.

    Did anybody hear of an update here? I read where there is a real cloud over the situation as the morgue never had the body, the police are being silent, the ransom is suspicious. My interest is as both a 5Dimes account holder and general curiosity since I spoke to Tony a number of times over the years.
