Edison Rodolfo Rojas, alias “Pichi,” who is suspected of ordering the January 1 massacre of nine people in Envigado (a city just south of Medellin) was captured by Panamanian authorities on Sunday. Pichi arrived at the anti-narcotics institution in Bogota on Monday night, reports El Colombiano.
BACKGROUND: Medellin’s ‘top crime boss’ arrested in Panama
The alleged crime boss will be moved to the Jose Felix de Restrepo justice building in Medellin for arraignment.
The nine-person massacre in Envigado is suspected to have been the result of in-fighting within the ranks of the “Oficina de Envigado,” one of Medellin’s most powerful gangs.
Police reports gave a rare glimpse into the accused’s personal life. According to the newspaper El Tiempo, an altar of skulls and machetes was found in Pichi’s Panama residence. He supposedly also sought the consulation of a witch to evade capture.
