Description

Two terrorists accosted him and shot him twice from point-blank range in the back of the neck. The first shot knocked him down and he was shot a second time while lying on the ground. He was killed instantly. The army officer was an easy target, due to his regular daily routine and the fact that he had no protection. Nonetheless, an ETA collaborator used his acquaintance with the victim to give information to the killers. Emilio was a regular customer at a bar in Erandio but he was unaware that the son of the owner, Juan Carlos Echeandia Zorroza, had been part of a network of ETA-militar informers since the beginning of 1980.
