Arrest Made In 2007 Murder Of Broward Businessman

POMPANO BEACH (CBS4) – The Broward State Attorney’s Office says they have the man responsible for the death of a businessman whose remains were found in a metal box in Palm Beach Gardens.

A grand jury handed down the indictment against Gustavo Enamorado-Dubon Thursday for the death of Francisco Cuevas. He faces charges of First Degree Murder and Armed Kidnapping.

Cuevas was reported missing after failing to show up at a business meeting in Pompano Beach in November 2007. Some of Cuevas’ remains were found in April 2008 in a metal box in Palm Beach Gardens.

Cuevas left behind a large grieving family who has waited years for this day.

“At least there’s somebody that has been arrested and charged that were involved in my son’s murder. That’s one of the best news that I’ve heard. At least something good has happened,” said Margarita Goedeke.

Court records reveal that suspicion in this case initially focused on Cuevas’ business partner, Hagen Christ. Authorities said Christ withdrew large sums of money from the business’ accounts in the days after Cuevas vanished.

Christ has not been charged and according to Cuevas’ family and investigators, Christ has left the country.
