Felix Verdejo Turns Himself In, In Connection To Death Of His 27 Year Old Pregnant Partner

Lightweight boxer Felix Verdejo surrendered to the FBI in Puerto Rico, Sunday night, after federal agents identified the body of a 27-year-old dead woman as his lover. Keishla Rodríguez was pregnant with Verdejo’s child at the time of her death.

Felix is accused by the FBI of punching Keishla Rodríguez in the face, injecting her with an unidentified substance through a syringe.

The boxer allegedly boundled her hands and feet with wire, tying her to a heavy block, and throwing her off of a bridge. Authorities also claim Verdejo shot at her from the bridge as she fell.

Prior to her death, Rodríguez’s mother, Keila Ortiz, told reporters that her daughter called her to tell her that Verdejo was coming over to her house to check on the results of a pregnancy test.

The killing reportedly occurred at 8:30 AM, Thursday. Verdejo’s promoter, Top Rank, released a statement in response to the news.

“Top Rank’s thoughts and prayers are with Keishla Marlen Rodriguez Ortiz’s family and friends, and with all those in mourning,” the statement read. “We are deeply disturbed by the news reports, and we will continue to monitor developments in the case as it progresses.”




According to HotNewHipHop, Verdejo and his attorneys have thus far declined to comment. Hundreds of people gathered in protest at the bridge where Rodríguez was killed to demand justice.
