Four Found Slain in Colombia

BOGOTA – Four men were found dead Friday inside the trunks of two cars abandoned on the outskirts of the central Colombian city of Villavicencio, police said.

The victims include a pair of brothers and their nephew and one of the men was kidnapped in 2003 by the since-disbanded AUC rightist militias.

They were killed sometime after midnight Thursday, Meta province police chief Col. Marco Tulio Avendaño told reporters.

All four of the victims were shot, while three of them also had their throats cut, the chief said.

The bodies were left in the trunks of two luxury cars with Bogota license plates, according to Avendaño, who said one of the vehicles was armor-plated and that police had to use small explosive charges to get inside.

Found in one of the cars was a shotgun “with plenty of ammunition” as well as two ammo cartridges for a pistol, the chief said.

He identified the dead as brothers Jose Octavio and Libardo Cubides Gomez, their nephew Beyer Arnulfo Mendoza Cubines and Jhon Fredy Ruiz Garzon.

None of the victims had a criminal record, Col. Avendaño said. EFE
