Haiti police probe slaying of well-known notary

Haiti's national police force says detectives are investigating the slaying of a well-known notary whose body was found in the street.

Spokesman Frantz Lerebours says notary Gilbert Giordani had been snatched while driving his BMW on a sidestreet near downtown Port-au-Prince on Friday evening.

The abduction prompted police to set up checkpoints around the capital in an effort to rescue the notary.

But Lerebours says passers-by found his body Saturday morning dumped on a hilly road in the Canape Vert neighborhood of the capital.
