Well, I guess we don't have to wonder any longer about the Fountain Valley killer and hijacker: http://stthomassource.com/content/news/local-news/2015/04/23/cuban-diary-fountain-valley-killer-labeet-alive-and-well-cuba

"He's a nice guy." Right.

Not necessarily.
He got away with multiple murders.
Ask the families of those killed in cold blood, if they've healed.

There is a book called, "Ishmael, Was Paradise Lost", written by A. F. Caruso, that is about the Fountain Valley Massacre. It almost seems that Ishmael himself wrote the book. I cannot find any information on the author. It seems that this is the only book he has written.

I believe the book is available on Kindle for free.

So has the AG asked for him to be extradited back to the VI?

Are we going to open relations with a country that stole millions of dollars from thousands of people, and harbors the worlds criminals, and just pretend that nothing happened?

We should just occupy a piece of their country, build a military base and torture people there instead.. Oh wait

Any fugitives should be extradited before any more normalization take place

Argentina
Brazil
China
Dominican Republic
Egypt
French Guiana
Ghana
Honduras
Iraq
J...K...L...M..N..O..P....

(There is probably at least one country for every letter of the alphabet that at some point matched the statement)

I must be missing your point, or you missed mine. Did those countries nationalize businesses and take away prperty owned by Americans and not compensate them for it?

All countries (well, governments really) have "...stolen millions from thousands of people...harboring criminals..." at some point in time. Even the US (if you happen to believe the Native American Indians). Take Venezuela for another more current example. I don't believe Cuba unique in this regard. That was my subtle point.

I know/knew people who were on that hijacked plane, both as passsengers and as crew. It was a real trauma for some of them, and caused some problems that lasted a long time. It was a serious federal crime and he already was a federal prisoner who escaped...no way this hijacking should be ignored if we ever got the opportunity to prosecute him

A new book, "Fountain Valley 1972" by St Croix attorney Michael Joseph, was released late last year.

Wouldn't waste my money.
Sorry everyone, but the fact that this criminal who was responsible
for the cold blooded murder of so many, locals and tourists alike,
got away and lives a normal life in Cuba is extremely upsetting.

I am still convinced that this one incident is what destroyed tourism on STX.

Agreed.

It took decades for STX to stop being shunned as a vacation destination due to the Fountain Valley murders.
