One of the tombs affected was that of the mother of the renowned professor Leónidas Pérez. An image of Christ was detached from the tombstone, which is valued at 6,000 córdobas.

Apparently, the criminals intended to take the image, but they could not and it remained on the site, hanging, so the teacher decided to remove it, at the risk that it would be presented again.


Due to what happened, the citizens were outraged and demand the action of the authorities. Through the social network Facebook, the resident Eveling Acevedo recalled that some time ago the tomb of her grandfather Guilebaldo Acevedo was also affected.
