The Grayzone presents a documentary investigation into the career and killing of Fernando Villavicencio, the late Ecuadorian presidential candidate and former President of the Commission of Fiscalization and Political Control of the National Assembly of Ecuador.

Days after proclaiming that Ecuador had been “kidnapped by the mafias,” Villavicencio was assassinated at close range by a gunman allegedly hired by the narco gangs he had vowed to destroy. Our investigation raises new questions about police and high-level political involvement in the killing, while examining its impact on the country’s August 24th national election.
