Description

After the police received an anonymous tip-off that a man had been tied up close to the Port of Vitoria, a detachment was sent out to investigate. They found no one at the scene, only a padlock. Just as they were about to leave, a powerful explosion went off, killing José Antonio and injuring another four officers. The victim’s remains were found scattered across nearby bushes.
