Description

Alberto Aznar Feix had retired from his post as Lieutenant-Colonel in the Artillery four years before. He had subsequently suffered a mild heart attack, from which he was recovering, and had got into the habit of taking a walk each day around Portugalete with his 92-year-old mother. As they were approaching the main door of the building where the old lady lived, they stopped to talk to a neighbour. An ETA gunman took the opportunity to shoot Alberto from point-blank range. The retired officer died shortly after being admitted to Cruces Hospital. Alberto Aznar, aged 64, had two children aged 21 and 20. He had been widowed and subsequently remarried.
