Luis Donald Colosio was killed on March 23, 1994 in Tijuana, Baja California. He was a candidate for the PRI and did his post grad studies in the University of Pennsylvania. He was shot by a Mario Aburto Martinez who was born in 71 and after the shooting, sentenced to 42 years in prison. The official story states that he acted alone but conspiracies abound. If you ask a Mexican of the assassination, you'll get everything from a narco-political conspiracy to a state execution. Former President Carlos Salinas de Gortari has denied allegations that he ordered the killing because Colosio was breaking ranks with the party's old guard. There are those who say that Aburto was framed and the real gunman was murdered by the same men who supposedly contracted him. Colosio swore to end any and all forms of corruption in Mexico and investigate and punish politicians, officers, and others in power severely if they were caught.
His last visit was to a poor neighborhood called Lomas Taurinas in Tijuana. He was shot three times.
At 0:35, Aburto pulls out a .38 revolver and shoots Colosio in the head.
