Ex-combatant of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia –FARC-EP–. Joined at the age of 23, remained in the group for 3 years.
This is the story of a massacre by the guerrilla; of a butcher who was killed because of suspicion.
He worked with his brother and his 15-year-old son.
They killed the butcher, his brother and his son… the butcher had eight children and the oldest was the one working with him. He had a baby in his arms.
In mid-Sunday, the guerrila killed him and left. They were cynical enough to show up at the wake the next day.
His children were crying and shouting: “why, why did you kill him, why did you kill my father?” They asked “why?”, and they knelt, the knelt down before the guerrilla.
