Park Ranger Killed in Guatemala

GUATEMALA CITY – A ranger employed by Guatemala’s National Protected Areas Council, or CONAP, was killed in the Caribbean city of Puerto Barrios, the Ecodevelopment and Conservation Foundation said on Sunday.

Samuel Rodriguez Reyes was found dead Saturday at the foundation’s office, where he also worked as a security guard.

The 54-year-old Rodriguez was shot several times and stuffed into a closet, where foundation employees found him.

Rodriguez was responsible for protecting natural resources in Cerro San Gil, located in the Caribbean province of Izabal, CONAP officials said.

“We condemn his killing because the only thing he did was guard the protected areas in Cerro San Gil,” CONAP spokesman Oswaldo Calderon said.

Rodriguez had reported illegal logging and the construction of houses in protected areas last year, Calderon said.

Police are trying to determine who killed Rodriguez and whether his death was linked to the complaint he filed with prosecutors.
