Until this Thursday, the detention of an 18-year-old man linked to him for the murder of a 27-year-old man was extended, an event that occurred early Sunday in the Tubul sector, Arauco commune.

This was reported by the Prosecutor’s Office, since relevant proceedings must be developed whose development is still pending.

That is why the court accepted the request made by the Arauco persecutor, Carolina Molina.

The events date back to the early morning of Sunday, January 9, when a 27-year-old subject was stabbed in the company of a friend in the Prat de Caleta Tubul pier.
