“Well, I was sleeping that Thursday night when the police arrived at around eleven. I got up and went outside. I thought they were there for something else. They asked me if Diego Armando was my son and I told them yes. They told me that they had some bad news to give me. They told me Diego had died. They found the body at the edge of the road. When I got there afterwards I only saw blood on the ground. This took place in Corozal, just after Louisville. He had two daughters and his girlfriend was expecting another baby.”
