In Managua, the death of the American citizen Henry Vera, 48 years old, was confirmed. A statement published by the Instituto de Medicina Legal (Institute of Legal Medicine) or forensic medicine details that “it was determined that the death was violent and from the legal medical point of view, the manner of death was homicidal.”

Though numerous reports indicate Vera was another victim of the clashes, however, the facts indicate American was ambushed after receiving a call that a friend was in need of help. The body was stripped down to his boxers and his vehicle set on fire, indicating the murder was may have been a hit and not related to ongoing clashes.

Fateful day. The highest number of deaths, 16, was recorded on Wednesday, May 30, Mother’s Day in Nicaragua.

That day in Managua there were nine dead, shot in the march in solidarity with the mothers of the victims of the protests of April and May, in the vicinity of the Universidad Nacional de Ingeniería (UNI) – the National University of Engineering; Four in Esteli; Two in Chinandega; and one in Masaya.
