All six men were, reportedly, paid 400,000 Dominican pesos (about $7,800) to kill David Ortiz for reasons unknown. Rumors speculated that one of the men suspected David (nicknamed, Big Papi) of having an affair with his wife. Others claim they aimed to injure him. David’s assistant, Leo Lopez, speculated:

“It wasn’t a robbery. They didn’t ask for anything. It was a direct shot at David.”

In a recent press conference, prosecutor Jean Alain Rodríguez says this about the details of the case:

“We’ll get to the bottom of all the details of this crime, and all those involved will have to face the weight of the law.”

He has undergone two drastic surgeries, including having his gallbladder and part of his intestines removed. His wife, Tiffany Ortiz, says he is making a recovery. He has even made a couple steps this week! She said:

“His condition is guarded and he will remain in the I.C.U. for the coming days, but he is making good progress towards recovery.”
