The family of beloved boxing icon Hector Camacho can now finally let out a sigh of relief.
In a courtroom Wednesday in San Juan, Puerto Rico, five men were charged with the shocking murder of the three-division titlist and his childhood friend Adrián Mojica Moreno, bringing some semblance of closure to a tragedy whose perpetrators remained a mystery for nearly 10 years.
In November 2012, Camacho was shot in the face while sitting in a Ford Mustang outside a bar in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, his birthplace. The bullet traveled through the left side of Camacho’s face and fractured his vertebrae. He was rushed to a hospital in San Juan but died four days later after he was disconnected from life-support. Camacho was 50. Mojica was killed on the spot and discovered to have nine bags of cocaine in his pocket, while a 10th was found open in the car.
