Description

Rafael Vega had just opened his off-license when two hooded men got out of a car, walked up to him and shot him several times without saying a word. He was hit six times, four to the head. The terrorists fled in a vehicle where two other accomplices were waiting for them. His widow never overcame the loss of her husband and suffered depression as a result. Some months later, on 8 September, she committed suicide by throwing herself from a sixth floor window.
