A 13-year-old Cuban girl living in Havana was allegedly burned to death by a man who threw some kind of fuel on her.
The teenager was at home and stopped at the door to send a congratulatory postcard on her mobile phone, but a man started urinating at the entrance of the house. The father came out and told the man not to do that, that there were women and girls in the place, but the man reacted violently. He left and returned with a container with flammable liquid, lit it and threw it at the house and its inhabitants.
Expressed condolences to the relatives of the deceased teenager by posting on the “Regla” Facebook group, whose identity has not been revealed. User Erika Wendy Lanes Navarro, who identified herself as the victim’s cousin, described how the murder took place.
“She took a gallon of gasoline, lit it and threw it away. She (the girl) was the most affected. It was the beginning of Mother’s Day. She was standing outside her house to send postcards and she. At that time the man was urinating there. And my uncle said to him: ‘Fuck you, go behind the container, there are women and girls here.
“Tit, they called that killer. It was my 13 year old cousin who died because of that, but we will make him pay. I want justice!” Llannes said in astonishment. “This is a world we live in, only of violence,” she remarked.
The publication also mentions another case of a teenager who allegedly died of electrocution. The circumstances of this case are not known exactly, as the official press media do not report on these deaths and whatever information exists is found on social networks.
A person in the Facebook group “Cuban Mothers for a Better World” said the event took place in Regla Municipality.
Yandiel Comendador Peria, a boy between 13 and 14 years old, came in contact with a high-voltage power cable while climbing a mango tree after a rain. Many say the teen “unfortunately passed away.”
In March, a teenager was killed during military service in Havana. The youth, identified as Ernesto Miranda, was 18 years old and a resident of Cerro.
His death was also shrouded in a halo of mystery as he was serving in the Artillery Regiment unit in La Lisa and the Cuban authorities did not report anything regarding the matter.
