Colquechaca, Bolivia (The Weekly Vice) - Santos Ramos, a 17-year-old Bolivian man who was under investigation for the rape and murder of a 35-year-old woman, was buried alive by angry villagers who tossed him into the victim's grave and buried him alive.
According to police, 35-year-old Leandra Janco was raped and then murdered last Sunday - and the fact that her alleged attacker hadn't been arrested yet didn't sit well with the town's villagers.
Investigators say about 200 villagers were attending the woman's funeral Wednesday when they seized the suspect, tied him up and then tossed him into the hole that had been dug for the victim's casket.
The villagers then dropped the victim's casket into the hole and buried them both together. Residents reportedly blocked a road the next day which prevented police from reaching the scene.
A man and woman suspected of inciting and leading the mob have been arrested and charged with murder.
