Just before, the activist had made an address at a meeting in Témoris, the municipal seat of Guazapares, in order to attend a meeting with staff of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (Sader).

The report contends that at least four hooded and armed subjects aboard two vehicles took the victim.

Elements of the State Agency of Investigation (AEI) assured two vehicles that were indicated in the report of illegal deprivation of liberty of Cruz Soto Caraveo last Sunday, October 13.

Agents followed up on the investigation Thursday night when they detected a Jeep, Grand Cherokee, metallic blue, with EKL 5517 license plates from the state of Chihuahua.

The unit, manned by Wendy Cristal QA, coincides with the characteristics of the vehicle used to take Soto Caraveo, who had gone to Témoris over the weekend to receive Federal Government support, against his will.

After several operations carried out by the Prosecutor’s Office to try to find the whereabouts of activist Cruz Soto Caraveo, then the location of the lifeless body of that person was reported unofficially.

Previously, investigators had secured a Hummer, H3, red, 2006 model vehicle with theft report on October 6, 2018 in the state of Michoacán, which had also been used in the illicit crimes.

The report argues that at least four hooded and armed subjects aboard two vehicles were taken to Soto Caraveo in an unknown direction last Sunday.

The State Attorney General maintains an operation in the region with the support of a helicopter to find the exact whereabouts of Cruz Soto Caraveo.
