Edit: in a climate of increasing persecution of the Church, some have turned to murder. Those responsible have not been apprehended yet.
[runrun] On Monday, April 10, the priest Diego Begolla, house coordinator of the Franciscans de La Victoria in Aragua state, was found with his threat slit in his office.
Begolla's body showed signs of violence and the neck was cut with an edged weapon. The situation had a serious impact on the elderly Father Suso, who knows him.
For the moment it is known that the religious was in his office and it is assumed that the motive was theft from the institution, because the assailants took computer equipment, valuables, food and other things.
The location is being examined by officials of the Police of Aragua and of the Corps of Investigations Scientific, Penal and Criminalistics, (Cicpc) to collect the evidence.
The news caused much shock among citizens on the eve of Holy Week.
