Domingo Contreras is/was a resident of Burgos, Spain where the Betterville Prison was constructed. He was a local musician and a member of the Betterville prison band. This information came from a Spanish website, no longer on-line, with various picture ID's from the Leone films including several photos of the members of the band. I no longer have a picture of him since my old computer crashed and I lost all my files and photos.
