“2019 doesn’t let up in shocking us with news in this town.”
“At 5 o’clock in the morning, the lady, his wife, rang me and she was very upset.
“The doctors were there but when I arrived at their home, he had already died.
“He could never overcome what happened to Emiliano.
“When the body was found he thought the case would be closed – but all the news that came to light about the pilot was very difficult,” mayor of Progreso Julio Muller said.
