According to the Salvadoran Security portfolio, the authorities began the search operation for Chacón after receiving information from Interpol Colombia.

Another detainee was Wilber Geovanny Rodríguez Huezo, a Salvadoran citizen who allegedly helped Chacón hide from the authorities.

Salvadoran authorities raided two houses where the suspect was hiding and seized Colombian passports, cell phones, laptops, and about 15,000 euros, as well as some dollars, Colombian and Mexican pesos.

The Colombian press reported last week that Chacón is a partner of Andrés Pérez Hoyos, a Colombian drug trafficker arrested last weekend along with his brother.

Both recognized this week before the Justice to have been related to the murder of Pecci.

In addition to the Pérez brothers, both in prison, five other people have already been arrested and four of them have been sentenced to 23 years in prison.

According to the Colombian newspaper El Tiempo, Chacón is considered “the mastermind behind the assassination of the Paraguayan prosecutor,” because she would have coordinated the attack against Pecci and hired and paid the hitmen who executed him.

However, the authorities have not yet determined the intellectual authors of the murder of Pecci, who was investigating cases of drug trafficking and organized crime.

The United States offered a reward of 5 million dollars to those who provide information on those responsible.

Throughout the international investigation, some criminal organizations such as the Brazilian PCC (Primeiro Comando da Capital), the Venezuelan Tren de Aragua and the Uruguayan Clan Insfrán emerged as suspects.

Pecci, specializing in organized crime, drug trafficking, money laundering and terrorist financing, had investigated gangs in Brazil, as well as Lebanese money launderers from the Triple Border of Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina.
