Venezuelan man killed son and self, police say
A businessman who was facing conviction on bribery charges linked to Venezuela’s state oil company killed his 3-year-old son before fatally shooting himself in a luxury condominium in Miami, police said.
The bodies of José Manuel González Testino, 53, and his son, José Manuel González, were found Wednesday night at a Coconut Grove condominium during a wellness check.
González Testino controlled multiple international and U.S.based companies, and in 2019 pleaded guilty in federal courts in South Texas for his role in a bribery scheme involving Venezuelan state-owned Petróleos de Venezuela and its subsidiaries, according to the U.S. Justice Department. His sentencing was scheduled for the end of March in federal court in Houston.
