Remis was killed allegedly by the Public Works’ municipal-secretary Jorge Marra, while the politician was denouncing irregularities in a public work’s construction.

According to local media, Marra interrupted Remis’ broadcast as he took the cell phone away from the politician.

“Here is the secretary. He came here to attack me. Don’t take my phone,” Remis shouted during the live recording.

Minutes later, Remis went to the Mayor’s office to claim his phone when he was shot five times in the head. He died in the place.
