Marcelo Pecci Cause Of Death, Obituary Unavailable Yet – According to police and his widow, Paraguayan anti-drug prosecutor Marcelo Pecci was shot dead execution-style while on honeymoon on a Colombian Caribbean island on Tuesday. The president of Paraguay called the crime a “cowardly murder,” while a colleague prosecutor compared the operation to “the mafia.”
According to france24.com, his wife, Paraguayan writer Claudia Aguilera, Pecci, 45, was killed by two bullets while sunbathing on a beach on the tourist island of Baru. “Marcelo was attacked by two men. They arrived in a tiny boat or on a jet ski, and the reality is that I couldn’t see very clearly “She informed the newspaper El Tiempo about it.
One of the perpetrators escaped and “shot Marcelo twice without saying anything, one in the face and one in the back,” according to Aguilera. Aguilera claimed that her husband, who had only been married for two weeks, had not received any threats. “Assassins arrived on the beach… and attacked and murdered one of our guests,” the Decameron Hotel, where the couple was staying, said in a statement.
