Description

Enrique Aresti was attacked on the first flight of the stairs leading to the offices of the insurance company where he worked. A member of ETA approached him from behind and shot him once in the back of the neck. The bullet travelled in an upwards trajectory, penetrating his head and killing him instantly. It was later found embedded in the front wall of the building, at a height of around two metres. The killer made off on foot, disappearing among the streets of the old quarter of Bilbao.
