Jewelers’ Murders Prompt New Inquiry

Police officers here (Puerto Rico) began a “new and concentrated” investigation today into the murders and disappearance of three American diamond dealers after the charred body of a man believed to be a missing NY diamond merchant was found.

A San Juan designer and jewelry manufacturer, Hector Acavedo, acknowledged that he owed Mr. Sharizadeh about $40,000 at the time of his disappearance. He denied an accusation that he owed another $40,000 and that he had told the dealer to bring more than $200,000 in diamonds with him for potential customers.
