Arrest made in case of Ottawa man murdered in Panama

Police in Panama have made an arrest in the death of an Ottawa man whose body was found stuffed in a suitcase in March of 2013.

Ed Moynan went missing from his home in the city of Coronado in November 2012.

An English language community newspaper in Panama reports 56-year-old Swiss national Ludwig Vico Pereira was arrested in front of a mall in Coronado on Friday.

According to Playa Community, police are still searching for other suspects in Moynan's death.

One of those suspects is believed to be a Canadian who was deported from Panama last year.

Moynan's daughter took to Facebook to say she is glad to finally see some justice in the case.

Interpol has Pereira on its most wanted list. According to its website he is wanted by the judicial authorities of Panama for prosecution/to serve a sentence for homicide.
