Gilberto Soto Murder Case

There don't seem to be any developments on the Gilberto Soto murder case. Soto, a U.S. citizen born in El Salvador was a labor organizer for the Teamsters in New Jersey. Mr. Soto was killed outside his family'’s home in Usulutan, El Salvador on Friday, November 5, 2004. Law enforcement authorities in El Salvador continue to insist the murder was a "common" crime orchestrated by Soto's mother-in-law. Soto's family and Teamsters colleagues don't believe it.

Telemundo broadcast a story in February about the case featuring interviews with several witnesses and Soto's mother-in-law. A transcript in English is availablehere.

The web site of the US Embassy in El Salvador continues to list a hotline for information about the case and a $75,000 reward.
