FFrancisca Chen Ismalej, 58, survivor from the Rio Negro massacre, sits inside her home with a kitten on her lap. Francisca hopes the Forensic Anthropology Foundation of Guatemala (FAFG) identifies and returns the remains of her sister-in-law Margarita Tum Iboy, twenty-eight years old at the time of her killing or abduction during the 14 May 1982, Los Encuentros Massacre. It is very likely that all five were also exhumed in 2012 from a grave XV at the UN's CREOMPAZ training centre, formerly Coban's Military Zone 21. During the massacre, soldiers and civil patrolmen killed 79 community members from Rio Negro who were hiding there after two previous massacres of February and March of the same year.
