A sad day in Pinal Villa

Yesterday morning my neighbor came over to tell me Domingo, our local store owner, had been shot and killed in front of his store Sunday night.   He was well respected in the community and I've known him and family for the 5 years I've lived here.   As the only store and doing a good business, extortion is suspected but who knows.   It's just very sad.

His body was expected last night after being with the Coroner in El Grullo and people were waiting at the wake in his back yard.   Lorena and I took over flowers and will attend the Mass at the church this morning. The following article came out on the Canal 235 web site.

Murder in Pinal Villa!

In a neighborhood called Pinal Villa Domingo Hernandez Salazar was killed by a group of strangers. This adds to the high impact crimes in the town of Cihuatlán.

The victim was attacked outside his home and store marked with number 87 Calle Francisco Villa, in Colonia Pinal Villa located between Jaluco and San Patricio-Melaque.

Unexpectedly, several unknown assailants approached the home where he operates a grocery store and triggered a weapon that killed the unfortunate subject 53, who was identified by his wife.

The assassination led to the mobilization of police forces, however, there is no news about the arrest of the perpetrators of this crime.

The Attorney General of the State of Jalisco and performs the necessary research on this case. (December 4, 2013 / 10:30)

Wake for Domingo

Very sad. I think I saw him only twice, but it is always disconcerting when a neighbor dies under these circumstances. I wish I could attend the mass.
