An armed paramilitary group of about 30 men invaded the La Ceiba estate in sector Marimonda I, in the parish of San José, the Jesús Enrique Lossada municipality, state of Zulia in Venezuela.

Apparently, they were looking for a specific person, but since they didn’t find him, they killed two caretakers who were present on the farm. One of the caretakers was shot point blank in the face with a shotgun while napping in a hammock in the back of the house.

Hearing the shot, the other caretaker tried to flee into the undergrowth, but was shot in the head. The shot ripped a huge hole in his face. After that, the assailants set fire to the inner part of the house and burned two motorcycles, presumed to belong to the victims. The property is owned by a man of 89 years, nicknamed “Cheo” Vera, who would have witnessed the attack, but managed to flee before the killers could get him.

It would appear that the killers were a group of extortionists who were looking for the brother of 56 year old Eladio José Ferrer, whom they shot dead a few days earlier, as he was leaving a bakery located on Gran Parada street, Los Rosales in Concepción. The brother, they believed, was hiding in the farm.

Eladio and his brother would have refused to submit to the demands of this paramilitary group of extortionists, and for that reason they were threatened and targeted for assassination.
