tsburg (Ind.) Daily News, Wednesday, Aug. 11,1965 PACE It Disputed Political Views— Cuban Held in MIAMI (UPI) — A swarthy, pro-Castro Cuban sailor was held'for a murder charge today in the slayings of his captain and four shipmates aboard the freighter Seven Seas. Authorities said Robert Ramirez confessed he killed the five seamen because they disputed his political views. He left unsolved the whereabouts of a crewmen still missing. Another sailor survived the car- nage by hiding in the ship's bilge. Ramirez was found in a life boat Tuesday by the German freighter Bellavia about 60 miles south of Miami. Ramirez carried a fully loaded revolver, knives and a supply, of bullets. The fiery Latin was described by a former skipper as "a heavy drinker and a woman chaser, tout a good sailor." The missing cre'wman was the ship's cook, Gerald Davis- son. A Coast Guard spokesman said there were no immediate plans to launch a search for D a v i s o n, who may have jumped overboard in panic. Another crewman, Elvin Bury- waise, a 17-year-old Hondurari, often talked with Ramirez about his former life as a lobster fisherman in Cuba and about his family. This may have saved his life. Ramirez told authorities he did not attempt to harm B waise because he had never argued 'with him about Cuban polities. . , Burywaise hid in the ship s anchor locker for 14 hours after the slayings Saturday night. He emerged after a Coast Guard cutter pulled alongside the seemingly lifeless ship Sunday.
