Alfredo Simon facing murder charges

Alfredo Simon facing murder charges

PostPost #1 by Don » January 2nd, 2011, 11:25 am

Alfredo Simon is being accused of murdering one man and wounding another in the Dominican Rebuplic during New Years Eve. Two Orioles dominican contacts, one being Felipe Alou Jr., have told the associated press that Simon was not involved. The Santo Domingo based Dominican News has reported that Simon had shot a gun into the sky to break up a fight and the rest is hazy without explination, if it happened at that time or later in the evening.

Either way, you will likely see the United States pull his Visa until this is re-solved. The Orioles will have to add another arm in the case this further develops into something more serious.

Sad story regardless of the accuracy and without concern for the impact to the club. Has to be accidental. Would be the first time all year he actually hit a target.

The more I hear on this subject, the less I believe Alfredo Simon had anything to do with it. Why in the world would old teammates foot his legal bills? Support is one thing, but no one would be paying any legal bills if they even remotely thought Simon was able to do these types of things.

John Stockstill is on his way to the DR to collect more information on the situation.

Per Brittany Ghiroli on Twitter:

CNN report says Simon's lawyer was told by a source that preliminary ballistics reveal his gun did not fire fatal shot.
