There has been a low-level media frenzy in our immediate neighbourhood in Antigua, as it turns out that the alleged baby-snatchers' secret base was the Casa Quivira, a new building which sits at the entrance to San Pedro el Panorama, and a few minutes' stroll from our front door.
The lawyer and notary of the dodgy foster home's owners (Clifford Phillips of Florida and his Guatemalan wife, Sandra González, both currently out of the country) were detained and subsequently admitted to hospital, as they had suddenly developed health problems. Meanwhile the 46 'rescued' children have been sent into care by a judge.
V took Jin for a walk up past the suspect property and told me rather excitedly this morning that she had been chatting to los cuques and had spotted the crew from Primer Impacto.
She claims that she found the couple's use of gringo builders in the construction of Casa Quivira more than a bit suspicious at the time, and given the fact that the police currently appear to lack any concrete evidence of illegal practices, surmises that there might be a hidden room or compartment in there where all the incriminating documents are stashed!
