Neighbors had reported to police strange movements on Thursday night. The criminals used the vehicle of the deceased to move the body to San Ramón.

“The relatives were in Colombia. There they called and demanded the ransom. We have to wait for the autopsy, but it seems that they cut off his head with a heavy object,” said Walter Espinoza.
