Jesus David Hernandez, alias “Chaparro”, on Tuesday accepted responsibility for the “forced disappearance, aggravated conspiracy and larceny” in the May 29, 2009, actions carried out by the criminal organization, “la Oficina”.
In the Medellin courthouse, Chaparro faced the mother of one of the missing girls, who asked him, “Didyou not think of your children when you had my girl?”.
Crying, Beatriz Saldarriaga, resigned herself to not knowing the truth about what happened to her daughter. “I had hoped that we would tell the truth, but asked forgiveness”, said the distraught mother.
In 2009, Diego Alejandro Mejía Parra, an enemy of “Veintiocho” was kidnapped. Three young girls, Jenifer Puerta (18), Yudi Castillo (17) and Laura Echeverry (17) where in the vehicle with Mejía.
The prosecutor’s investigation showed that the foour corrupt police officers set up a roadblock in the area of the Itagüí train station, in Barrio Colombia (Medellin), and later handed over to “Chaparro” and his minions.
When asked about the fate of the young girls, Hernandez responded, “they are no longer here, it’s out of my hands”, meaning the group of four kidnapped are now dead.
A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for Monday.”Chaparro already has two prior convictions for murder and illegal possession of weapons.
