    William Sean Creighton, otherwise known as “5Dimes Tony” was found dead in Costa Rica. He was a very significant casino operator in Costa Rica and his brand - 5Dimes - highly rated from the players worldwide.
    His wife reported him missing on September 25th and he was last seen driving his Porsche Cayenne Turbo with no bodyguard escort.

    The police still haven’t confirmed the alleged ransom phone call on the night of the kidnapping, which was reported by Creighton’s wife. She said that the captors requested a $750,000 ransom fee to be paid in Bitcoin, and also transferred to a Cuban bank. According to other sources, the sum even exceeded $1 million in crypto equivalent, which the family agreed to pay wholeheartedly. To read a full story follow this link.

    Let's hope the killers will be arrested soon!

    Old news... Speculations fly. The wife is a native of Costa Rica, and fingers are being pointed to her being involved. Who knows. Though, rather odd the night he had no bodyguard escort, he vanishes...

    This is actually new, news. This actually happened this month. You are thinking of the murder years back, and the wife was just convicted.

    You have to be extremely careful when you are running a high-end business out of a poor country.
    It's much better to try and blend in. Not really a good idea to drive around in a Porsche when their
    are carjackings in the country on a frequent basis. This reminds me of the murder of the owner of
    Casino Webcam, where his wife was just recently convicted for complicity in the murder.

    If it was his wife, he would have been targeted even if he was driving home in a Daewoo Matiz.

    Robbers also know that expensive car drivers usually take their measurements. People driving an expensive car, also will have their protection or even a gun next to them while driving.

    I agree, living in Cosa Rica is not the place to be flashy! Just visiting there in San Jose I was always on the watch for someone coming to rob me. I wore jeans, no flashy jewels etc.

    That's almost the same statement as they've made before. A bit of a weird statement.

    The OIJ (Judicial investigation body) has not confirmed it yet. So far everything is speculation.

    I know Costa Rica very well and there are more expensive cars on road, your comment doesn't make sense.

    Costa Rica is not a rich country but it’s not poor as some countries in Africa or others place of the world. According to the official release provided by OIJ, FBI was investigated him because of money laundry and others reasons... with that records even in Switzerland you be dead next day.

    The main point here is that, there isn’t sense to say that because of Costa Rica is “Poor” country you cannot drive a porche or run a high-end business... if you visit Escazu or Santa Ana you will see Ferrari or Lambos on roads. That's a location with a lot of rich people.

    So could be better visit the country and research official releases before to write non-sense allegations.

    It's all speculation on what happened to him. It could be something to do with money laundering.. or he
    could have run into the wrong people at the wrong time. My point was that it is much better to try and
    blend in when you are a foreigner in a foreign land and operating a high end sportsbook. I've lived in
    foreign countries and I've seen foreigners do some really ignorant things and get themselves kidnapped.

    Just because their are other people with high-end vehicles in the country, doesn't make the foreigner
    driving around in a Porsche any less of a target by those that are looking to rob or car-jack somebody.
    Is that the issue in this disappearance or attempted kidnapping? Nobody knows what happened to him.

    All speculation, but I do not think he was a victim by coincidence because he was driving a Porsche Cayenne Turbo. I'd bet on either a set-up by himself or by somebody he knows (his wife, business "partners", etc).
