According to what emerges, the perpetrators were holding Luis Diaz’s father in the jungle of Perijawhich complicated the investigation and kept the country in suspense for two long weeks.
The kidnappers knew the identity of the victim, they had studied his routine, they knew what time he left his house and what time he returned, which places he visited and which friends he often saw. They agreed that the day of the abduction should be before the regional elections since all police forces would be deployed to guarantee the security of the elections.
With the police on the heels of the perpetrators and the cordon…tightening dangerously around them, the “ELN” decided to release his father Luis Dias. Wanting to somehow cover their tracks and escape capture.
