A custodian of the Camagüey International Airport was murdered at dawn this Saturday, allegedly during an assault. The fact has not yet been confirmed by the Police or the provincial press, but the fragmented reports circulating on the networks indicate that he was killed with his own weapon.
The independent journalist José Luis Tan Estrada he pointed that a source close to the victim identified him as Cristian, 24 years old and a resident of Simoni, in the city of Camagüey. The young man, who was guarding the booth in front of the Paco Borrero neighborhood, was already found dead around seven o’clock last night by another guard when he came to relieve him.
“I’m just telling you that this child was a sweetheart,” the source told the journalist. The crime has generated consternation and several netizens, who have identified themselves as co-workers, describe the young man as having a kind personality. Witnesses say that police, firefighters and special brigades arrived at the scene, but so far they have not communicated the motive for the crime.
A source cited by Cubanet identified the young man as Cristian Castro, who lived with his grandmother. He assured that “they took his weapon after beating him to death” and also acknowledged that the area does not have security barriers, it is dark and the “grass comes up to your waist sometimes.” “There it is very easy for any stranger to get in,” he added.
The company spokesman said that he has “many” friends at the airport due to his links with the airline Viva Aerobus, who informed them about the murder of the guard.
Yosvany Betancourt Almanza, CEO of the Mundo Caribe travel agency, made a “warning call” not to create “speculations.” The company spokesman said that he has “many” friends at the airport due to his relationship with the airline Viva Aerobus, who informed them about the murder of the custodian belonging to the Civil Aviation Security and Protection Company (Espac). “I am sure that he will not go unpunished and soon the Ministry of the Interior will inform the people,” said Betancourt Almanza.
Cuba is facing a wave of violence, with armed robberies of motorcycles and cell phones. At the beginning of this month, the murder of doctor Pablo Corrales Susi was confirmed, in Havana, victim of an assault to snatch his motorcycle.
Churches are also targets for assailants and even the homes of relatives of priests, such as the case of the parents of Cuban priest Leandro Naunwhich on June 5 reported that three masked men broke into his home and beat up the woman and hit the man with a machete over the head.
