A new report published by Billboard on Wednesday notes that police in San Juan, Puerto Rico have not named Ozuna and his manager Vicente Saavedra as persons of interest in the January murder of local rapper Kevin Fret.
Following an extensive interview with state prosecutor Betzaida Quiñones on April 9, Saavedra told reporters that Quiñones informed him that he has not been named as a person of interest, Billboard points out. The manager explained that he was not asked about the murder during the interview, but of claims that Fret attempted to extort money from Ozuna over a pornographic tape which Ozuna appeared in as a minor.
Quiñones appeared on Puerto Rican TV show Lo Sé Todo in January and said that she was not investigating Ozuna for the homicide.
The state prosecutor is also planning to interview reggaeton singer Arcángel, Lieutenant José Cruz Marrero, director of the San Juan CIB Homicide Division tells Billboard.
Fret was murdered in January in San Juan. The 26-year-old rapper's mother Hilda Rodriguez maintained her original claims that Ozuna and his manager ordered the killing of her son in a recent interview on Lo Sé Todo on April 15.
Police have yet to charge anyone with the murder.
