Governor’s daughter, 21, and two other women brutally executed outside nightclub
October 12, 2021
The governor of Paraguay has been left mourning his daughter's unexpected death after she was tragically shot dead outside a nightclub alongside her drug dealer boyfriend and two other young women.
The gunman was captured on camera as he jumped out of a vehicle and fired 107 shots in the city of Pedro Juan Caballero on Saturday, October 9.
Haylee Acevedo, 21, her boyfriend Omar Álvarez, 32, and friends Kaline Reinoso, 22, and Rhamye Borges, 18, were ambushed as they were about to leave the club on the weekend.
Paraguay Interior Minister Arnaldo Giuzzio revealed that governor Acevedo rejected an offer from Amambay's police director to provide him and his family a security detail back in September, the minister told Paraguayan network ABC TV on Tuesday.
It was reported that the suspects were targeting Álvarez, who was allegedly involved in drug trafficking along the Paraguay-Brazil border region.
"We are overwhelmed by organized crime. My daughter was in the wrong place with the wrong person,' governor Ronald Acevedo told ABC TV on Tuesday.
The governor also set part his daughter from Álvarez and claims that they were not a couple, reports Daily Mail.
Acevedo and her friends Borges and Reinoso were all training to be doctors at Paraguay Central University's Pedro Juan Caballero campus.
Álvarez was shot 32 times. Reinoso received 14 shots and Borges was shot 10 times. Acevedo was struck by six bullets.
