The 28 year old, who joined the FARC at 13, was found after the army discovered notebooks with thousands of names and phone numbers of extortion victims in Tolima, explained Colonel Julio Cesar Prieto. “His death is a relief for Tolima,” he added.
The two other FARC members killed were identified by their aliases “Riano” and “Jennifer,” or “La Flaca” (the skinny girl) as the army referred to her. A FARC member known by the alias “Robinson,” supposedly an explosive expert, was the only one captured alive.
The fighting continues in “El Canon de las Hermosas,” where authorities believe that FARC Supreme Commander Guillermo Leon Saenz, alias “Alphonso Cano,” is currently in hiding.
