143. Luis Vigoreaux, Burnt Alive | Puerto Rico

Transcript

At the time of his death, Luis was going through a bitter divorce from soap opera star, Lydia Echevarría. It did not take law enforcement long to find their first suspect. The case was a media circus, and everyone watched as it unfolded, like a real-life, true crime-of-passion drama.
