Description

After finishing his day’s work at the Altos Hornos blast furnaces, Luis Candendo drove home, where his wife had a bread roll ready for him. He was planning to go on from there to meet friends at a gastronomic society. His wife left the roll on the passenger seat. As she was leaving, she crossed paths with a terrorist who started shooting at the car. He was quickly joined by a second individual. Luis was shot eight times and killed. In all, ten shell casings were found at the scene.
