Eight people died in social unrest caused by rising fuel prices.The circumstances of the deaths are not clear.

Until October 14, the Ombudsman's Office recorded eight deaths in the protests that lasted 11 days. But information about the circumstances of their deaths comes to mind drops. For Minister María Paula Romo, the Police are not responsible for those deaths. Among the dead are two indigenous leaders of Cotopaxi, but one has not yet been located. The other is Inocencio Tucumbi, who was fired by thousands of Pujilenses last Saturday. This article was written thanks to the contributions of the communicator Willy David Maigua, who lives in Pujilí.

Following the trail of how the eight deaths that the Ombudsman's Office has registered in the protests against the Government has been an ant job. The multiple versions and the lack of immediate investigations have filled these tragedies with elucubrations.

Following the trail of how the eight deaths that the Ombudsman's Office has registered in the protests against the Government has been an ant job. The multiple versions and the lack of immediate investigations have filled these tragedies with elucubrations. The only certainty is that the crisis in Ecuador ended with the cost of eight lives. One of them was that of Tucumbi. According to the report of the legista doctor of the Attorney General's Office, Edgar Ramos, the cause of the death of the indigenous leader was a "cerebral hemorrhage", "fracture of the anterior and middle skull floor", "trauma". The photographs that circulated the deceased leader among the leadership were shocking. A disfigured, bloody face was observed, with swollen and bruised eyes. Tucumbi was in the Eugenio Espejo hospital for an hour until he died.

According to the latest report by the Ombudsman, seven of the eight victims died in Quito. The only one that did not happen in the capital was Raúl Chilpe, which happened in Molleturo, Azuay, on October 6. Chilpe was hit in a road cut by a private car. José Daniel Chaluisa Cusco and Marco Humberto Oto Rivera died between October 7 and 8. Both fell from a bridge in the San Roque sector after an "arbitrary police chase," according to the entity. Chaluisa Cusco died immediately. While Oto, due to the seriousness of his injuries, died a day later at the Eugenio Espejo hospital. He was declared brain dead and disconnected.
