Josué Israel Mojica Velázquez

At approximately 6:15 on the morning of July 8, Josué left his house in the direction of the roadblock at La Libertad. As he was approaching the La Covacha liquor store, a gunshot from behind perforated his liver.  Witnesses said the young man, clearly dying, was tortured by paramilitaries who hit him in the face, fractured a rib and dislocated his left shoulder to then finish him off with a bayonet stab in the chest, according to related testimonies.
