'NO ONE WANTS TO SNITCH' IN MURDER OF MIAMI COCKFIGHTING REFEREE, COPS SAY

Snitches are scarce in the case of a cockfighting referree known as "El Ruso" or "The Russian," who was found dead in a secret arena in a lawless area on the edge of the Everglades, Miami police say.

The body of Jose Raudel Garcia, 46 was found inside the cockfighting ring in April. He had been shot multiple times, and a pouch of refereeing equipment was hanging from Garcia’s neck when he was found, police told the Miami Herald.

"It's a very tight-knit community and no one wants to snitch," Miami-Dade homicide Detective Michael Brajdic told the newspaper. "I have not had a single tip on this — and there were upward of 50 people there."
