Well, this is interesting. A former Haitian government official named Klaus Eberwein was apparently found dead last Tuesday in a South Dade motel room in Miami, Florida. The coroner has ruled it a suicide. “He shot himself in the head,” said Veronica Lamar, Miami-Dade medical examiner records supervisor. She recorded the time of death at 12:19 pm. He was found in a Quality Inn.
Eberwein was a supporter of former Haitian President Michel Martelly. He served as the director general of the government’s economic development agency known as FAES. He was in that position from May of 2012 to February of 2015 when he was replaced. Records show that he was also a partner in a popular pizza restaurant in Haiti named Muncheez. “It’s really shocking,” said Muncheez’s owner Gilbert Bailly. “We grew up together; he was like family.”
