Body of German man found at Domincan Republic airport

Authorities in the Dominican Republic say they have found the decomposed body of a German man inside an airport along the country's north coast.

Officials identified the victim as 45-year-old Erich Zipfel and said he had been stabbed.

Airport Department Director Aristides Fernandez said Thursday that the body was found in an unoccupied part of the Gregorio Luperon airport near the popular tourist spots of Puerto Plata, Sosua and Cabarete.

Officials said they did not know whether Zipfel was a tourist or lived in the country.

Most of the country's German community has settled in Sosua and are owners of hotels, coffee shops and restaurants.
