Into a Colombian first division soccer game in a morbid scene seemingly plucked from the 1989 movie Weekend at Bernie's, the corpse of 17-year-old soccer fan Cristopher Sanguino. On March 26, the day before a highly anticipated match between Envigado and the home side, Cúcuta Deportivo, in Estadio General Santander, Sanguino—who belonged to a group of hard-core Deportivo supporters called la barra del indio—was playing a game of pickup soccer when he was gunned down in a drive-by shooting. The following day some 200 to 300 la barra supporters waited outside the stadium until the final 15 minutes of the match, at which point they rushed through the open gates bearing a coffin containing Sanguino's body. According to witnesses, the coffin reached the terrace level of the stadium in time for its handlers to celebrate a late Deportivo equalizer. Afterward Sanguino's mother offered her full support of the act, saying, "He loved the game and he loved his team, so what better way to honor him?"
