re: 5Dimes Tony Kidnapped & Murdered in Costa Rica (Real Name: William Sean Creighton, American)

The Judicial Investigation Agency (OIJ) confirmed on Tuesday that it is looking for a missing American man since September 25.Although the OIJ indicated that the entity does not have reports of the payment of a ransom, it is unofficially stated that a million dollar sum was demanded from the 43-year-old man's family.The director of the OIJ, Walter Espinoza insisted that through the Costa Rican judicial authorities there has been no communication with alleged kidnappers.The subject identifies himself as William Sean, better known as Tony. He is a neighbor of Santa Ana and owns an electronic betting center in San Pedro.Sean was last seen in Curridabat when he went to leave a co-worker."The OIJ has not received nor has it known that a reward is required," Espinoza said.The police chief said they can not provide further details of the investigation because the life of the American could be in danger.The case is handled by the Miscellaneous Crimes section and the Criminal Investigations unit. The judicial authorities located the American's vehicle, but no further details were given as the investigation is in process.Private investigatorsIn this case, the national authorities found that Sean's family privately hired private investigators in the country.They were from September 25 to 27 in the country and no further details of their actions are handled.The OIJ pointed out that they were not officials of any governmental institution and they did not receive references in this regard from the US embassy.The OIJ works on the reconstruction of the scenario and hopes to obtain more details of the case. Sean also has Costa Rican citizenship.Unofficially it is said that the family would have executed a millionaire payment before contacting the OIJ, but this was not corroborated by Espinoza.

Whoever is doing this had better stop! I would hate to see this become a trend, where good people like Jon Kreta and Diane Coates get kidnapped and harmed.

If you see these people, they are definitely not ultra wealthy gambling industry giants who could be ransomed for millions. If you see them, leave them alone. Do not hurt them.









****ing how is this woman the head of one of the largest online sportsbooks in the world?

I'd say in sportsbook terms that the odds aren't looking good for a good outcome. +800??

5Dimes owner Sean Creighton vehicle found crashed by police

Diaro Extra also reports that confidential sources tell the paper that the mastermind behind the brazen attack is a Mixed Marial Arts fighter.

I mean, he doesn't deserve to be kidnapped and probably murdered, but he is by all accounts an *******, 5dimes sold my credit card info on to thieves to make a buck and lied about it and 'Tony' has a well documented history of being an ******* towards basically everyone, so... dude had enemies and is basically a rich crook living in a third world country, this isn't that surprising or sad.

I'm guessing 5dimes didn't directly sell your info, but whatever processor they used had a breach or sold it.

Seems odd that he has been operating in Costa Rica for 20 years and now that legalization happens in U.S. BOOM he is gone.

It looks like it’s official. RIP Tony. My personal thanks for the best golf lines ever, and hilarious chats.

Re: 5Dimes Tony Kidnapped & Murdered in Costa Rica (William Sean Creighton, American, Age 43)

From Friday's Diario Extra (translated);

The whereabouts of William Sean Creighton Kopko, of US nationality and known as Tony, remains a mystery to the authorities of the Judicial Investigation Agency (OIJ), however the investigation is progressing.


Confidential sources informed DIARIO EXTRA that among the suspects to carry out the "release" would be a man who worked as an officer in an educational center and another in charge of the security of a gaming building located in San Pedro, Montes de Oca.

Our deep throat added that this last subject of black complexion would be the one that some residents of San Francisco saw in San Isidro, Heredia, driving -with a motorcycle helmet- the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, which was located after they intentionally hit it against the wall of cement and a metal gate. This vehicle was the one that the gringo drove.

The 43-year-old victim, who is naturalized Costa Rican, lives with his family in Santa Ana and runs several betting houses in San Pedro, where he was last seen leaving his office and captors were waiting outside to follow him.

On September 24, Tony rode alone in his car, at 10 p.m. Two gunmen on a motorcycle intercepted him in Granadilla de Curridabat. They forced him out at gunpoint and put him in a taxi, where two buddies were to take him to his place of captivity, which remains unknown.

It happened that Tony did not have bodyguards, although he is considered one of the three strongest men of the 300 betting houses that operate in Costa Rica, which move millions in cryptocurrency, which is considered a safe money.

IMPORTANT WOMEN

Our source of information adds that the wife and the manager of the company communicated by telephone, apparently they met to make the payment of at least $ 1 million that was received in Cuba, where one Costa Rican and three men traveled.

Apparently three calls were made to that Caribbean country and the wife of the gringo received the same number of communications. One of them lasted 20 minutes.

Tony's associates hired private investigators, but it the OIJ pointed out that this group of ex-officers of the FBI were accompanied by a Costa Rican official.

It was learned that 130 bitcoins were moved to another wallet (which is converted into cash). The current value of each one is $ 6,500.

The authorities do not believe that the kidnapping is for drug trafficking, however they accept that this type of transaction is commonly used for money laundering.

These companies are illegal in the United States and in our country they are in their infancy.

Tony was born in Miami, where he has many contacts that collect money, it is a strong network that also serves a part of Asia and operates in Nicaragua.

The researchers manage two possible scenarios in the area where the gringo could be: San José and the Caribbean.

Investigations to try to find the businessman are ongoing, and they do not rule out arrests in the coming days.

I'm going with faked his death and fled to Cuba to avoid the Costa Rican government turning him over to the US govt.

US govt found out Tony's real identity when his mom died and the obituary listed his name + his wife's. His wife came under suspicion for money laundering recently and the obituary connected her to Tony.
