Fernando Ruesga was shot to death in Utah. A week after the brutal crime authorities still have not arrested anyone related to the young man’s killing. The Great Salt Lake City Unified Police Department (UPDSL) is investigating the murder.

According to the information on the case gathered by the UPDSL detectives, on Friday, April 8, 2022, at 4:30 in the afternoon, several residents of an apartment complex in Magna, a city west of the Salt Lake City metropolitan area, called to report a shooting.

Several UPDSL patrolmen were dispatched to the Colony Farms housing complex, 7520 West 2600 South in Magna, to investigate the report from concerned neighbors. When the officers arrived at the complex parking lot, they found Ruesga in a car. He’d been shot several times.

There was nothing UPDSL officers could do for the young man and he was pronounced dead inside the car. The officers were able to identify him as Fernando Ruesga thanks to the ID he had on him. The type of car in which Ruesga died is not recorded in the report.

Some neighbors who spoke with the UPDSL detectives told them that moments before the shooting, Fernando Ruesga was arguing with another man. In the middle of the argument Ruesga and killer started a fight for some reason that is not yet known. Filed Under: Assassination of Fernando Ruesga

Fernando Ruesga’s killer pulled out a gun that he presumably carried in his vehicle and fired several shots at the young man, presumably at close range. The suspect escaped from the Colony Farms parking lot in a silver Maserati. It’s an expensive and rare car.

The first clue in Fernando Ruesga’s murder is the silver Maserati sports car, since they are expensive cars that, even used, are worth more than $50,000. Detectives are recovering security camera footage from various businesses and homes around the crime scene looking for the Maserati. Filed Under: Assassination of Fernando Ruesga

Moments before he was killed, Fernando Ruesga left his young children at his apartment, according to his relatives, who spoke with the UPDSL detectives. The boy’s father said that Ruesga planned to sell the car where he was found murdered that afternoon.

Fernando Ruesga Sr., father of the murdered man said, in an interview with the television channel ABC-4 in Utah, that he saw the news of the shooting at an apartment complex in Magna on social media and had a bad feeling about it. The man went to his son’s house and when he arrived he found the area full of patrol cars. Filed Under: Assassination of Fernando Ruesga
