The version of relatives and witnesses is that police arrested Mario Orlando Sequeira because he had drunk too much in the hotel Gomez, where he was staying and it had already been a week after he arrived from Denver, Colorado, United States to visit his family.
The police arrested the young man, handcuffed him and took him to a cell in the police station, located about 400 meters from the hotel, where he was savagely beaten and tortured to death.
It was reported that the officer in charge of the police operation was identified as Nazir Lopez, who clearly along with the troops under his command, violated established police procedures regarding the detention of a citizen.
Police did not give any explanation to the family and only referred to the prosecution of the area, where they were informed that Mario Orlando's body had been sent to the judicial morgue in the capital, said Francisco Javier (brother of Mario Orlando) who lives in Denver, Colorado, United States and decided to visit his family along with his murdered brother.
Mario Orlando visit his family in Siguatepeque every year. He was married to an American citizen and leaves a daughter. The youth had never imagined that this year he would encounter death in his own country and at the hands of police.
For his part Julio César Canales, the victim's uncle said when I came to Siguatepeque "the information I got was that police had arrested Mario and had taken him to the police station and then had come to throw him to the judicial morgue. "
"They captured him, they allegedly murdered him and the evidence he has, the signs of torture he has, only police uses chachas (handcuffs) and all that, they fractured his hand, foot, broke his trachea, beat him all up" he lamented.
Another relative, Oscar Ramón Martínez Canales said that we live in a critical state, no one guarantees the security to continue living normally, no one protects us.
Canales Martinez called the police action "cowardly and in my way of thinking, if no one supports us, we will take serious measures, because we cannot bear that our relatives are killed and that this becomes forgotten, because it is an unpunished crimewhat these guys did. "
