This entire story continues to crazier and crazier.
Earlier today, a damning report came out from Daily Mail that suggested David Ortiz was shot in the back in his native Dominican Republic because he may have allegedly been sleeping with the wife of a drug lord, who then retaliated by putting a hit out on him.
“Police in the Dominican Republic believe former Boston Red Sox star David ‘Big Papi’ Ortiz was shot by two cops hired by a Dominican Republic drug lord who believed the baseball player was having an affair with his wife, DailyMail.com has learned.
Three law enforcement sources confirmed the motive on Monday as Ortiz, 43, recovered in the hospital.
The drug lord has not been named.”
On Twitter, a video surfaced that claimed to be in the same D.R. hospital where Boston Red Sox slugger was having surgery for six hours after being shot.
The video was reposted several few times, with each one claiming that the two women were fighting inside the hospital, and one or both of them were allegedly Ortiz’s mistress.
Again, this is unconfirmed as of right now, but it is interesting with the earlier reports of why he was targeted.
25-year-old Eddy Feliz Garcia has been the only person arrested in connection with the shooting.
This is the alleged shooter after locals beat the crap out of him.
