EspañolOn Wednesday, authorities from Cuba discovered four bodies at a farm on the western coast of the island. The police are still working on determining the motive for their murder, but they believe the four individuals were attempting to flee the country by boat.

While it is unusual for Cuba’s government to provide information about homicides, the official report released by the Ministry of Interior stated that “the bodies were killed violently at the Niña Bonita farm, near village Playa Baracoa of the Bauta municipality, in Artemisa province.”

The authorities have not yet identified the weapon used in the murders, but have said the crime was carried out “with support from abroad.”

At press time, six people were detained for questioning in Cuba.
