On Saturday, Andres Blaquier, one of the richest men in Argentina and owner of the Ledesma Group was riding his 1200cc BMW motorcycle down the Panamericana motorway from Pilar to the capital when he was intercepted by murdering thugs riding a probably stolen Benelli bike. One was a girl of 18 years and the other, an 18 year old career criminal.
Blaquier tried to accelerate away but they shot him five times, downing his motorcycle. One of the murderers got onto the fallen bike, leaving the dying man on the ground and rode away a short distance before losing control of the powerful BMW and crashing it.
Both managed to escape on the Benelli but the girl was later captured by police.
The thug behind this despicable crime, Luciano Jesus Gonzalez, a known criminal is still on the run.
This type of crime is now becoming all too frequent and I have recently spoken to several motorcyclist victims held up at gunpoint on the motorway, with some managing to escape simply because their machines were much faster.
Unfortunately, even though Mr Blaquier's motorcycle was clearly very fast, they shot him anyway, five times and ended up with nothing but a dead man who didn't deserve to die in such barbaric fashion.
The police have now caught the murdering scum bastard. I hope he has a fatal accident in police custody.
