According to the portal pulseBalanta’s crime could be due to revenge, a fact that is also the subject of investigation.
The club where Kevin Balanta plays, issued a message of condolences for the loss of the loved one of the player on his squad: “The entire blue family is with you Kevin … a lot of strength,” reads the publication published on all his social networks.

For his part, Balanta confirmed the news of his brother’s murder by sharing the publication of Querétaro FC.
Precisely, the player would have learned the news of his brother’s death just before boarding the plane that would take him back to Aztec lands to rejoin his club after permission was granted to attend the funeral of his friend, who died on last November 29 in Argentine territory.
After confirming the death of his brother, Kevin Balanta will most likely stay in Colombia for a few more days to attend the funeral of his loved one.
