According to the police, the victim, identified as Hugo R. M., took his life by hanging from the neck with a rope tied to a tree. Witnesses told local media that the young man took his own life in the same place where his brother, identified as Manuel Alejandro, committed suicide in June 2018.

Authorities suspect that Hugo R. M. could have committed suicide due to the deep depression in which he fell after the death of his relative. Local media indicate that the body of the young man was located by his cousin around 7 o'clock in the morning.
