Gil allegedly swore to get even by killing the first man he came across. Ruthlessly cutting short Hugo Morales’ life and dreams. Hugo was alone in this country looking for a better life. «This has left us devastated, because it was shocking and unexpected news,» said his cousin, Óscar Morales, who started a GoFundMe account to raise funds.

The young man desperately seeks resources to return Hugo to Guatemala. His mother had not seen him for 16 years. Now she «will have to see him one last time in a coffin.»
