When relatives didn’t hear from him, a check at his home led to the gruesome discovery; Ayuso Junior had been stabbed multiple times, some say as many as a thirty-seven times. At the time police had questioned a couple persons, but no arrests were made. A weapon was never recovered and Police had labeled the killing as a ‘crime of passion.’  Friends of Ayuso Junior believed he was killed by someone he knew. The forty-four year old activist was known to advocate for a wide range of issues from culture and the arts to carnival. He was also a businessman and the President of the San Pedro AIDS Commission.
