The widow of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse is appealing to the public for help identifying additional individuals responsible for her husband’s death in a raid at their home. 

The 53-year-old former banana farmer and political novice who ran the country for more than four years was assassinated in his home on July 7 of this year, per the Associated Press. Martine Moïse, the president’s wife, was also injured in the attack and hospitalized in critical condition.

Interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph called the killing “a highly coordinated attack by a highly trained and heavily armed group,” per AP. 

Reuters reports that more than three dozen people have been arrested, including 18 Colombian mercenaries, an unidentified Haitian-American doctor who allegedly aspired to be president and the president’s head of security. 

“The people that did this are still out there, and I don’t know if their name will ever be out. Every country that can help, please help,” Martine first told Reuters. “Those people [they have arrested] did it, but someone gave the orders, someone gave the money.” 

She said she talked with the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) twice and felt they could find the people that financed the crime.

During the interview, Martine took the time to dispute some conspiracy theories that have been circulating for weeks. She said she was never aware of any plot against her husband, in which friends say left him in fear of his life, and he did not have millions of dollars hidden in a home.
