Spanish Businessman Murdered in Southwestern Colombia

BOGOTA – A Spanish businessman who owned several restaurants in Colombia was murdered last weekend by unidentified individuals, police said on Tuesday.

Jose Vicente Monzo Escrihuela was murdered on Sunday at a business in Roldanillo, a city in the southwestern province of Valle del Cauca.

The 54-year-old businessman was shot several times while negotiating to buy a property in which he planned to open a restaurant.

Monzo, who was from Alcira, Valencia, moved to Colombia eight years ago, spending about four years in Cartago, another city in Valle del Cauca, where he owned a steakhouse.

The Spanish businessman also owned a restaurant in Pereira, the capital of Risaralda province.

Investigators have not determined who killed Monzo or what the motive might be for the crime.

Police said the Spanish businessman did not have any family in Colombia.

Officials have created a special task force made up of Sijin investigative police officers and Attorney General’s Office Technical Investigations Agency (CTI) officers in an effort to solve the crime.

Media reports said investigators are working on the theory that Monzo’s killing may be linked to his restaurant business.
