The 25 Strangest Unsolved Crimes From Latin America

One of the deadliest political actions in recent Puerto Rico’s history, locals call these murders the worst political cover-up in the history of the island. On July 25, 1978, two pro-independence activists were murdered by Puerto Rican police. The killings started a number of protests and political events that eventually lead to the arrest and conviction of the 10 officers but also lead many islanders to believe high-ranking local government officials were also involved and conspiring to cover up the incident.

To this day, the fight for Puerto Rican independence cites the Cerro Maravilla Murders as one of many reasons to seek self-determination as a country.
