Prosecutors in the Dominican Republic unveiled Monday the name of the crime boss who reportedly ordered the murder of former baseball star David Ortiz last week.
In the courtroom, the authorities stated that José Eduardo (Chuky) Ciprián, who is currently broadcasting a murder verdict, has instructed Alberto Miguel Rodríguez Mota to act as a mediator and pay $ 8,000 to the assassins to perform the hit. Rodríguez Mota is currently fleeing the police.
Court documents showed a second intermediary named Gabriel Alexander Pérez. Vizcaíno delivered an iPhone, which was used for contact between Rodríguez Mota and the crime boss. Ciprián reportedly sent a photo of the intended target to the iPhone and discussed attack logistics.
Pérez Vizcaíno, who was handed over to the authorities by his father, met the attackers at a local gas station and presented the group with a photo of Ortiz before the former baseball star was shot on June 9 in Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo.

Pérez Vizcaíno was reportedly among the assassins when Ortiz was shot. He later got into a vehicle with one of the suspects, who is still present on a large scale.
Prosecutors also revealed that Pérez Vizcaíno sold the iPhone that was used in the attempted murder for $ 174 to a woman, eventually leading the police to the device.
Pérez Vizcaíno must return to the courtroom on Monday evening to hear if he will be imprisoned for his involvement in the shooting.
Officials in the Dominican Republic have also promised to reveal the likely motive behind the attack.
Since the shooting, there have been many theories about who wanted Ortiz to die and why.
Ortiz spent Father's Day recovering at a Boston hospital, one week to the day after he was shot in the back at a nightclub in his birthplace.
The office of the Attorney General of the Dominican Republic said on Friday that the prosecutor of Santo Domingo East will issue a & # 39; full report of the case & # 39 ;.
The police have so far arrested Ferreras Cruz; Reynaldo Rodriguez Valenzuela; Eddy Vladimir (El Nata) Féliz García; Joel (Calamardo) Rodriguez de la Cruz; and Porfirio Ayendi Dechamps Vásquez, known as & # 39; El Nene & # 39 ;, Spanish for & # 39; The Kid & # 39 ;.
They will all be held in prison during the trial of custody, together with married couple Oliver Moisés Mirabal and Lanny Estefanny Pérez Reyes.
Ciprián and Carlos Rafael (Carlos Nike) Álvarez, who served a 20-year sentence for an aggravated robbery, are also questioned for their role in the shooting.
Three law enforcement sources told DailyMail.com last week that the organizer was a Dominican drug lord who thought Ortiz was having an affair with his model girlfriend.
Ortiz & # 39; s wife, Tiffany, said on Instagram that the brush of her husband's death has given her & # 39; an awareness of what really matters & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Be present at all times, do not depend on gifts, material things, titles, fame or wealth. Those things can be taken away from us in the blink of an eye and all we have left are the memories of the moments when we are truly connected and grounded in true love, & she wrote.
Ortiz & # 39; s son, D & # 39; Angelo, also took the time on Sunday to show his appreciation for his recovering father.
& # 39; Happy Father & # 39; s Day is so fond of you & # 39 ;, wrote the 14-year-old on his Instagram page.
& # 39; You make me better every day (.) If I can be half the man, that's a success (.) Thank you for teaching me so much (.) We only have greatness a head of ours. & # 39;

Prosecutor Milciades Guzman told reporters on Friday that the investigators are preparing to arrest the person who ordered the shooting.
& # 39; His time has come. He will not see the sun for 40 years, & said Guzmán, according to CNN.
Surveillance cameras recorded the moment Ortiz and his friends spoke at the club that evening when a shooter drove up and opened fire blindly at him.
One of the attacker's bullets entered Ortiz & # 39; s back and left his stomach.
The police still have to confirm a motive for the attack, but they said before that the gang & # 39; sicarios & # 39; (assassins) tried to kill Ortiz about a 400,000 prize from the Dominican Pesos ($ 7805) on his head.
Dailymail.com last week revealed that Dominican model and YouTube beauty vlogger Maria Yeribell Martinez Garcia was the woman at the center of the alleged love triangle between Ortiz and a headache drug.

She was caught on video fights with Big Papi & # 39; s entourage in a waiting room, hours after the failed & # 39; hit & # 39; on 9 June in the Dominican Republic.
Garcia is reportedly no longer seen in public since the fight, but someone who claims to be her denied any romantic involvement with the married Ortiz during a telephone conversation with a Dominican TV channel.
Garcia also said that the love triangle rumor & # 39; completely false & # 39; was in an Instagram post, but a series of images that have been widely circulated in Dominican media in recent days seems to show that Ortiz had bought her a luxury SUV the day before the shooting.

There was also a check made by David Americo Ortiz Arias, the full name of the ex-all-star, who showed a check from the Bank of America for $ 84,500.
The memo on the check has been translated to read: & # 39; the purchase of the vehicle & # 39 ;. The check was dated June 10, the Monday after Ortiz was shot.
The first reports showed that no fewer than 10 men were involved in the assassination attempt, but officials have since stated that there were seven attackers.
