Salvadoran Rene Godoy Died from Trauma to the Head

Rene Godoy

Thirty-year-old Rene Godoy was beaten to death by a group of villagers in Silk Grass in the wee early hours of June twenty-first.  The Salvadoran national was allegedly involved in a number of chopping incidents in that southern community prior to being attacked by an angry mob which took justice into its own hands.  Godoy was pummeled by his attackers after injuring several persons with a machete earlier that night.  This morning, police shared the cause of death based on his post mortem results.

“Also in relation to the matter of Rene Godoy, a post mortem examination revealed that he died from cardiac intramural thrombolism as a consequence of multiple blunt force trauma to the chest.  Our investigation into this matter as well is still ongoing, both the criminal and internal investigation.”


It is alleged that Godoy was beaten to a bloody pulp in the presence of a police officer who stood watch as he was being walloped.
