Family of Wigan's Palacios pays brother's ransom

The family of Wilson Palacios are waiting for news on his kidnapped brother.

The Palacios family have paid a ransom to kidnappers who took the midfielder's 16-year-old brother from his home in Honduras during October, although the boy has still not been released, a police official said yesterday.

"The case has become complicated," said Francisco Murillo, the director of criminal investigations. "His family paid the ransom, but the kidnappers still have him. The Palacios family has lost contact with the kidnappers ... and that worries us."
