ONE night last year police received a call from worried residents of a wealthy area of San Salvador, El Salvador’s capital, who thought they had heard a woman being beaten up by her partner. A few minutes later they called back to say they had heard gunshots ring out from the house.
The police were too late. When they arrived at the scene, they found the lifeless body of Lida Maria Huezo with a gunshot to her head. She held the fatal weapon in her hands, but the police believed that her husband, Manuel Gutiérrez, who was drunk and at Huezo’s side, might have put it there to make it seem as though she had committed suicide.
