January 26, 2013
A huge drama unfolded in rural setting “The Micheo” located about 15 kilometers from the town of John E. Barra, Bs As province, when a farmer murdered his employer because he had treated him badly.
Alberto Bonifacio Martinez, 70, killed his boss Jorge Pizarro Costa Paz, 38, a native of Buenos Aires, and whose wife was about to give birth.
The drama began after an argument, when Pizarro Costa Paz was withdrawing his cows from a field that had rented for three years, where Martinez worked for a long time
He had hired several trucks to carry the animals and drivers witnessed the fact. “You shouldn’t yell me, I could be your father,” Martinez told his boss.
The man threatened to shoot him, went to his house, grabbed a shotgun and comeback to kill him.
“Come on Martinez” Pizarro Costa Paz said when he saw the gun. Martinez did not answer, just fired and the bullet hit him in the neck. The man died while being taken by ambulance.
The farmer went home and waited for the police to look for him. There was no resistance when he was arrested. His aides said that until now he had always been a quiet man, with no history of violence. The event caused a stir in the town Juan E. Barra.
Pizarro Costa Paz’ remains were buried in La Recoleta Cemetery on Friday.
