Description

The Fort Lauderdale News and the Sun-Sentinel Company provide a detailed account of the sinking of a wooden sailboat packed with 63 Haitian refugees headed toward the United States. The sailboat sunk off of Hillsboro Beach, an oceanfront community of million-dollar homes and luxury condominiums. Upon further investigation and interviews with the tragedy's survivors, the News discovered that the refugees were being smuggled by a shadowy man from Port-Au-Prince known only as Gustave. After a two-month invesigation, the News discovered the identity of Gustave and that had been in federal custody twice before but was released to continue his people smuggling.
