was indeed Colonel Manuel Enrique Suárez Benavidez, whose army unit had been identified as a death squad that captured and interrogated suspected leftist guerrillas during the wave of violence and civil wars that swept Honduras and other Central American countries during the 1980s. A court had ordered the colonel’s arrest a year before, but he had remained free, despite being frequently sighted in the streets, and at restaurants and sporting events. Some suspected that the police were not serious about capturing him, but the police denied this. So when Alvarez knew he had a story, he did two things: he sent a cameraman to film the colonel, and he called the police. Alvarez identified himself as a reporter, and reported the whereabouts of Colonel Suárez Benavidez. It took police investigators 30 minutes to arrive on the scene, but the colonel had not moved, and Alvarez had his videocamera ready to film the arrest. Alvarez was aware that his action had created the news event, which was a major scoop for his station, Telenisa Channel 63. “Probably if I would have not called,” he said later, “the investigators would not have arrested him.” Alvarez produced his story and had it on the air in 45 minutes. His seven minute report included footage of the colonel seated and reading and of his arrest by police investigators. It had background on the court order for Suárez Benavidez’s arrest and archive footage about human rights abuses from the 1980s.
