The case of the 21-year-old man shot to death in Eldorado at dawn on Saturday has a main suspect and he is in custody. The teenager involved testified and was released while the investigations continue in search of the murder weapon.
The death of Jorge Fernando Ruiz Díaz (21), from the Antiguo Centro neighborhood (kilometer 2), occurred hours after being shot while walking down Schultze Street and San Martín Avenue, at kilometer 1.
Sources linked to the investigation reported that in previous moments Ruiz Díaz was beaten by a man, identified as Sergio C. (30). Some people even said that days ago the person involved exhibited a revolver.
Based on the information, a 16-year-old teenager was arrested, allegedly linked to the attack, and they arrested Sergio C., who searched the house in search of the weapon and elements that could be related to the crime. Both had admitted that they had shared drinks with the victim.
According to a source in charge of the file, the minor was released after his statement and the author would be the man who is in custody. On the other hand, the projectile was found inside the body of the deceased young man and the searches continue in order to find the murder weapon, which would clarify the fact.
It was the victim herself who, mortally wounded, reported to the police authorities that in full transit through the aforementioned corner she heard the noise of the shot and fell to the ground. In this context, she felt that the bullet had pierced her neck.
He was taken by ambulance to the hospital, where they determined that Ruiz Diaz had an entry hole on the left edge of his neck, without an exit hole, so an X-ray revealed that the projectile was lodged in the right inner edge.
Without more information than that, the investigation continued until it took a complete turn, especially considering the death of Ruiz Díaz around noon.
The body of the young man was subjected to an autopsy and the cause went from serious injuries with a firearm to homicide, with the intervention of the Eldorado Investigating Court.
