Kevin Fret started this petition to Senator Elizabeth Warren and

  The 25-year-old interpreter broke all the schemes of a genre most identified with machismo by releasing her first single, "Soy Así", on April 7, 2018 on the YouTube digital platform. The video accumulated over 100,000 views in a short time and quickly placed Fret, who always made public his sexual orientation as a gay man, on the artistic map of Latin trap. Today, the video adds over 4,000,000 views. Since then, almost four months have passed in which his family has publicly called for justice and in which virtually no exponent of the genre has wanted to talk about his violent death and its possible effect on the industry. Almost four months of an investigation around which has generated much noise and much discussion and speculation at the public level, but has not yet produced a suspect or an arrest.

  We demand the intervention of the US government in the murder case of the young rapper Kevin Fret, which happened in San Juan, Puerto Rico on January 10, 2019. The artist was shot 8 times, which leaves no doubt that someone ordered his death. Although the local authorities and the police have tried to do their job, the existing corruption in Puerto Rico has been an impediment for any formal accusations. The evidence is there, however corruption, bribery, and death threats have affected the case in a negative way. Governor Ricardo Rosselló has remained silent when it comes to this case, particularly when some of the alleged suspects are among his close friends. The ramifications of corruption taint the  investigation to the point that the prosecutor in charge of the case has been receiving pressure to drop the case. We demand the federal authorities to take over this case and make sure the responsible persons for this horrendous crime pay for it.

   Por este medio pedimos la intervención del gobierno de los EE.UU. en la investigación del asesinato del joven Kevin Fret ocurrida en San Juan el 10 de enero de 2019. Este joven recibió 2 impacto de bala que cegaron su vida, lo cual no deja duda que esto fue un asesinato por encargo. Aunque la policía de Puerto Rico y la autoridades locales han intentado hacer su trabajo, la corrupción reinante en la isla ha impedido que se hagan acusaciones formales. Existen las evidencias, pero el soborno, la corrupción y las amenazas de muerte han evitado que el caso prospere. El Gobernador Ricardo Rosselló ha permanecido silente ante este caso, sobretodo cuando él ha  compartido con los alegados sospechosos de este caso. Los tentáculos de la corrupción llegan hasta la fiscalía, donde la fiscal asignada al caso ha recibido presión. Exigimos que las autoridades federales intervengan en este caso y que los responsables paguen por este crimen.
