THEY AMBUSHED AND KILLED A PARAGUAYAN WHEN HE WAS GOING TO BUY A CAR
INTERNATIONAL (special envoy) Criminals set him up using the Facebook Marketplace.
A family’s plan was to go buy a car that they saw on the Facebook Marketplace, but it ended in tragedy because some assailants killed their father, yesterday in the city of Castelar, province of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The fatal victim was Domingo Acosta Aquino, a 58-year-old Paraguayan, who was shot at chest height. His son Cristian Damián Acosta González, 29, was injured in the leg. Braulia González, wife of the deceased, was the one who escaped unharmed.
There were three criminals and they fled in the car of their victims, taking the 5 million pesos (around G. 75 million) that were destined for the purchase of the car, which turned out to be just “bait” for the ambush, reported Telam agency.
To this day they still have not managed to locate the assailants. It is known that they arrived in a burgundy-colored Renault Clio vehicle at the agreed place for the meeting, the intersection of Ventura Bustos and Padre Arrieta streets. The authorities believe that they chose that place to have an easy exit to Villa Tesei.
A version circulated of what had been the car used as decoy, a white Renault Sandero. His owner told the press that his vehicle was not for sale and that he had just found out about the crime. But the investigators continue to investigate whether it was that or another shot that was offered on Facebook.
Less than two weeks ago, a young man was also killed in Santa Fe after being ambushed by fake vendors. The boy had traveled from the town of Sancti Spiritu with the intention of buying a motorcycle, he realized that they were going to rob him and, when he tried to flee, they shot him to death.
