Miami, FL–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–March 17, 2004–As we approach the tenth anniversary of Mexican presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio’s death, Maria Elena Salinas and Univision’s celebrated prime time newsmagazine, “Aquí y Ahora” (“Here and Now”), bring viewers a compelling and in-depth investigation into his murder. This special segment of “Aquí y Ahora” can be seen only on the Univision Network, Thursday, March 18 at 10pm ET/PT (9pm Central / Mountain).
On this journey back to March 23, 1994, reliving Colosio’s final hours, Salinas explores the mystery and conspiracy theories surrounding Colosio’s assassination. By talking to eyewitnesses and eliciting first hand accounts and recollections, Salinas recreates Colosio’s tragic last day in vivid detail. As a result of the tense political climate in Mexico at the time, many questions surrounding his death remain: What really happened? Who was responsible? Salinas’ riveting investigation includes exclusive interviews with Colosio’s parents as well as with the parents of his accused killer, Mario Aburto.
