FINAL UPDATE: Inside Costa Rica has made official confirmation as to the suspect’s identity.  The man in custody is neither Cory Vallee or the man identified in the report below.  Please click here to go to the updated story. 

 

July 29th, 2014 (InsideCostaRica.com) A Canadian man arrested over the weekend in Tamarindo on an international Interpol arrest warrant for homicide offered “thousands of dollars” in an attempt to bribe arresting officers into releasing him, police said yesterday.

 

Interpol has not yet officially reported the man’s identity or arrest.

 

The Spanish-language news web site, CRHoy.com, identified the man by the last name Ellys, but a search of Interpol arrest warrants – known as “Red Notices” – by Inside Costa Rica found no such subject in the database.

 

The search did uncover, however, a Canadian man by the name of Steven Douglas Skinner wanted by Interpol for second-degree murder who bears a strong resemblance to and matches the physical description of the man arrested by Costa Rican authorities.
