Before 20 People Who Just Videotaped Him, a Man Kills Girlfriend in Bolivia

LA PAZ – A young Bolivian man stabbed his girlfriend to death in the street and before a crowd of about 20 people, who did nothing to prevent the murder and simply videotaped and photographed the deed, police said Wednesday.

The victim, identified as Vanesa P.R., 21, was working on Tuesday in a restaurant in the northern city of Trinidad when she had an argument with her boyfriend, who then attacked her with a knife, according to the online edition of the daily La Razon.

The attacker, 22, stabbed the woman to death in front of passersby, who clustered around to watch the attack but did not intervene.

The director of the FELCV anti-violence force, Claudia Romero, told the newspaper’s digital edition that the murderer, who tried to kill himself after the attack, is in police custody and “once he improves, the Attorney General’s Office will determine” if it will take a statement from him.

The prosecutor of the Trinidad District, Wilma Blazz, said that if the witnesses had intervened, “perhaps the life of the young woman would have been saved.”

According to UN figures, Bolivia is the Latin American country with the highest rate of physical violence against women and the nation in this hemisphere, after Haiti, with the highest rate of sexual violence.
