2005 murder of online gambling executive finally laid to rest
The murder of online gambling executive Adam Anhang in Old San Juan, Costa Rica back in 2005 has finally reached the last chapter with the conviction of his widow, Aurea Vazquez Rijos, this week.
Vasquez was found guilty of conspiring to murder Anhang for $3 million with one of his employees, Alex Pabon Colon, who subsequently turned state’s evidence and admitted guilt.
Anhang was stabbed and bludgeoned repeatedly whilst walking along a street with Vasquez after asking her for a divorce 12 hours previously, and his family has sought justice for the murder ever since (see previous InfoPowa report).
Vasquez has escaped the death penalty but will be sentenced to an alternative punishment when the court reconvenes in January next year.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.
We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.
His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
