Guatemalan player's body found

Share This Story


Police in Guatemala have found the body of a professional soccer player chopped up and left in five plastic bags in a rural area.


Remembering the many athletes sports lost way too soon.

National Civil Police spokesman Donald Gonzalez says the remains were found Sunday with a message saying Carlos Mercedes Vasquez was killed for "messing with other women."

The spokesman says investigators are trying to determine whether that was the real reason for the slaying of Vasquez, who played for Malacateco in Guatemala's first-division soccer league.

Gonzalez says the body was found in the rural community of Malcatan a day after the 27-yeard-old was kidnapped while driving with two friends.
