American Vampire Now Deceased

By Gar Swaffar     Apr 2, 2008 in World
An American Vampire has assumed room temperature in a Chonchocoro, Bolivia prison.
Triston Jay Amero, a.k.a. Lestat Claudius de Orleans y Montivideo was imprisoned for acts of murder in La Paz, the capital of Bolivia.
In the capital of Bolivia two bombs were detonated at two low rent hotels, two people were killed, and seven others were wounded on March 22, 2006. Triston Jay Amero (24) and his girlfriend Alda Ribeiro Costa (47) were found guilty of murder in the case. Mr. Amero was a native of Placerville in Northern California who had a history of mental illness since childhood.
Mr. Amero had travelled extensively through South America describing himself variously as a Pagan High Priest, a Saudi Arabian lawyer and at one point as a Vampire, before settling in the mining town of Potosi. Mr. Amero obtained a license to sell dynamite, which is openly sold in the town, despite having a conviction for blowing up a automatic teller machine (ATM)previously in Argentina.
The prison holding the "American Vampire" was at an altitude of 14,000 feet and from every description a rather unhealthy and unpleasant place to be incarcerated. Mr. Amero's probable cause of death has been listed as pulmonary edema. Triston's autopsy was attended by officials from the American Embassy in La Paz.
This seems on the face of the available facts to be a case where both the California medical and mental health systems failed in a rather serious fashion to remedy or treat seriously a young man who had been in and out of mental facilities and Preston Juvenile Prison in Ione, Ca.
Also the authorities in Potosi, Bolivia have a share in the blame. In the normal course of events, a person with mental health issues, juvenile prison terms from the age of fourteen to twenty one and with a charge of blowing up an ATM in a neighboring country would not be given a license to sell explosives. Triston on the other hand was granted such a license.
