Investigators have tracked a suspect in the March 31 killing of an
off-duty New York City narcotics detective to Miami, and said yesterday
he might be headed to the Dominican Republic.
The police released a videotape yesterday that showed the suspect, Luis
Alberto Gomez Gonzalez, meeting a woman at the Greyhound Bus Terminal near
Miami International Airport last Tuesday.
The police say that two days earlier in the Bronx, Mr. Gonzalez stabbed
Detective Jamie Betancourt.
In the videotape, the woman was seen hugging Mr. Gonzalez, 29, of Jersey
City, and waiting with him in the terminal for about 15 minutes before they
left together in a taxi, the police said.
Investigators said they believed the woman had connections to people
New Jersey. Deputy Chief Joseph J. Reznick, the commander of detectives
the Bronx, said the police had released the videotape with the hope that
someone would come forward to help them identify her.
Reward money totaling $17,000 has been posted for information leading
the arrest and conviction of Mr. Gonzalez.
