Sources from the Attorney General’s Office confirmed to SEMANA that the ex-husband of actress Marilyn Patiño was killed along with three other people in a massacre reported on October 15 in the rural area of Caloto, Cauca.
It was learned that he was last seen alive on Sunday, after riding in a truck with his girlfriend; The following hours are being re-established by CTI agents.
The judicial report says that the four people were traveling in private cars in the Puente la Trampa sector when they were approached by unknown people.
“They were gagged and killed in the sugarcane fields,” witnesses told authorities when they recovered the four gunned-down bodies, two of whom were seen with their hands tied.
Later, they found burned cars, a criminal practice often carried out by the Dagoberto Ramos structure of FARC dissidents, which has a large presence in the sector where the events took place.
At that time, only one of the victims was identified: Alex Ricardo Barrera, 47, who has a criminal record for alleged fraud and threats, in events reported between 2017 and 2018.
The presumptions of crime
The first will relate to an intervention of the illegal group, because of the characteristics that the massacre took place. All eyes are on the structure of Dagoberto Ramos who spread terror in the area.
The second considers the settlement of accounts for alleged businesses that the deceased would have managed. The ex-husband of the actress seems to have a property in the department of Cauca.
However, it will be closely analyzed by a special commission sent by the Attorney General’s Office from the city of Bogotá to track the 73rd massacre reported this year in Colombia.
The actress and model spoke
After commenting that he currently lives in the city of Miami, in the United States, he assured that he knows very few details about the tragic death of Bonilla, who made a living as a businessman. “I don’t know what could happen, he is with his friends, with his girlfriend,” Patiño said sadly to his thousands of followers.
Amidst her pain, the actress asked for respect for her privacy and that of her children, and also mentioned that she will not talk about it in any media. He said that his lawyer, Abelardo de la Espriella, is in charge of the case.
“I am not really interested in revenge or revenge against anyone, but I ask you to leave me alone, I ask you not to bother me, I will not accept extortion or any kind of blackmail, all this is known- the Gaula and the authorities,” said the actress about the Bonilla crime, which is currently being investigated by the Cauca authorities.
