NEW YORK – On Dec. 28, 2012, Judge Miguel Vásquez charged eight retired army officers with the murder of Victor Jara, a popular songwriter, guitarist and theater director who was killed days after the 1973 military coup against Chilean President Salvador Allende.
One of those charged is Pedro Barrientos Nuñez, reportedly the one who fired the final shot that killed Jara. Barrientos now lives in Deltona, Florida. His extradition to Chile would assist in trying all those involved in Jara’s death.
