the poison. A note left by the lovers said “We want to be buried together,
please. Sorry” was found next to the corpses that produced dramatic scenes of
pain by both parents when moved by the police to be transferred to the morgue
The police are investigating the cause of this double
suicide but neighbors say that the parents of Eli Aquirre opposed to the
relationship that had started some months before, the young woman was about to
graduate after studying to become a nurse.
