The body of my half brother Jeff Kline was found in 2007 buried under the patio slab of a house in Costa Rica where he had rented a room from the serial killer William Holbert and Laura Reese before they moved to Panama (Wild Bill, March). Without the diligent work of investigator Don Winner at Panama-Guide.com, we would never have known Jeff's fate nor
that of what may end up being 10 or more other victims. Holbert will probably never be charged with Jeff's murder because authorities are focused on the killings in Bocas del Toro. ButJeffleft behind a grieving family, including two daughters. Rest in peace, Jeff, Cher Hughes, Bo Icelar, the Brown family and any other lost souls.

I was a friend of one of Holbert's victims, Cher Hughes. You overlook a chilling detail: In 2009 an ad appeared in The Bocas Breeze for the opening party at Holbert's private social club, with the slogan "Only 90 percent of our members survive." It was said to be situated at Cutthroat Cove. Karl Ike Bocas del Toro, Panama
