To the hundreds of students who lined up outside the funeral home that April evening in 2010, Brian Betts had been a beloved Washington, DC, middle school principal. But hotel employees denied seeing O'Neil, and drone footage of the surrounding countryside showed no trace of him or his car. So when Jorge said he was receiving strange Spanglish texts from O'Neil's phone, Donnie told him to call the police. It was here, Jorge said, that O'Neil had gone to meet his date the night he disappeared.Jorge went everywhere with Donnie, translating for him by day and sleeping in the same house at night.He even suggested suspects to police, organising a stakeout at a property where he said O'Neil might be held, Donnie recalled.
On 31 October, Donnie's fourth day in town, he and Jorge went to meet the mayor.But multiple people close to the situation, including investigators and an attorney for Jorge, confirmed his arrest and those of two others: Luis David Soto and Carlos Ramon Anguiano.A fourth suspect, Joel Carrillo Anguiano - a relative of Carlos - has also been charged but remains at large.Now they demanded ,000 more, but gave confusing directions, first instructing Jorge to pay in the morning, then ordering him to deposit a fifth of the money immediately - without providing a bank account. You don't give the orders here.” As the texts became more threatening, Jorge grew visibly distraught, sobbing and retching, recalled Donnie, who was busy dialing FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) officials - contacts of a relative who'd retired from the DEA - to ask them to try to trace his brother's phone.“I won't do anything until I see a photo that O'Neil is OK,” Jorge wrote back. The next morning, someone spotted O'Neil's car, parked downtown and filled with trash and beer bottles.
O'Neil had been lured not to the Punta Pacifico but to another hotel, where he had been beaten so badly that his lungs were punctured, investigators told Donnie.
