Friends and family celebrated the life of 68-year-old litigator Art Tarlow at a memorial service on Friday, as police in the Dominican Republic investigated his death.

Police in Sosúa executed a search warrant last week which led to the recovery of a pistol and revolver.

Tarlow, a prominent Portland business and construction lawyer, was shot to death June 10 inside his winter home in Sosua, a small town on the Caribbean country’s north coast. He was 68.

Police have been investigating whether the death was connected to a legal battle waged by Tarlow and a group of investors against a Sosua businessman after a failed attempt to build a luxury casino. Tarlow’s group, Mocarello, had recently won a $3.9 million lawsuit that would force the sale of a hotel that the investment group’s documents said served as collateral.
