Suspects Held In Killing Of Tourist

Three people were arrested Saturday in the fatal shooting of a Dutch tourist at a gas station.

The men - described as two teenagers and a young man - were expected to be charged with first-degree murder, said police Sgt. John Roper. The vehicle that the alleged robbers used was confiscated.

Tosca Dieperink, 39, was sitting in the passenger seat of a rental car with the windows up and the doors locked when she was shot once in the upper torso Friday morning.

Her husband, Gerrit-Jan, had pulled into a Shell Oil station to ask directions in the Liberty City area of Miami. The neighborhood is known for its crime and was the setting for fatal riots in 1980.
