This update refers to my previous blog from December 9th.  Yesterday we met with the local government leader who works in the area where the three murders occurred.  He said that Thursday night, he was called to investigate the situation and he interviewed several people and summoned the commissioner, or highest government lawyer in Jeremie, to investigate.  It seems that the deaths were a payback to the witchdoctor for previous wrongs and the ones involved in his death used the poison story as an excuse for murder.  Several people heard Pierre admit to having poison powder in his possession, however, and it is unlikely that there will be any charges made.  So, it is now in the hands of the local authorities
