The victim “entered, according to the administrator, with a group of friends. There was an argument inside and they went outside.

On that day, Pedro Durán went to his house, in Block 2 of Bastion Flower, and found his son Manuel, 22, dead in the room, with cuts on his body, next to a machete.

He blamed the death of his sixth son (seven) on three of his offspring for allegedly wanting to take over the house he left behind in Manuel’s care.
