Adolfo Mariñas Vence was found dead in the early hours of the morning by refuse collectors. He had been shot three times. There were no witnesses to the incident. The victim had recently been released from Martutene prison.
Several media outlets received calls from the self-styled Txikia Autonomous Unit (Comando Autónomo Txikia) claiming responsibility for Adolfo’s murder and accusing him of being a police collaborator.
