Funeral service held for boy killed in Miramar


A funeral service was being held today, for the 12-year-old boy who was murdered yesterday in Miramar, after thieves attempted to rob his home. Family, friends and neighbours –many of whom went out in protest against the crime demanding justice- were present to say goodbye to the boy.
Last night, groups of protestors destroyed the local town hall and a police station, while hundreds of Miramar residents carried out a peaceful protest, asking for justice and answers.
Initial reports stated that Gastón Bustamante was hiding underneath a bed when the robbers came into the room and murdered him when the boy was trying to communicate with the police over the phone. It was estimated that the boy was strangled with a sock, provoking his death.
Two people have been arrested in connection with the crime, both of whom lived close to the victim.
