About your son Palomino. Were her eyes always like that, or were they swollen from crying? I'm Officer Lituma, from Talara. I was there when Lieutenant Silva took your statement. She went into the house, carrying her corn and her bench. He followed her and took off his cap as soon as he was inside. He was moved by the fact that this had been Palomino Molero's house.
He was not following orders but his own initiative; he hoped it wouldn't mean trouble. She sagged into a chair, and since Lituma stared at her questioningly, she raised her voice.

Did you find it? But after she'd gone, neither he nor the lieutenant remembered. Sooner or later it'll turn up, and I'll bring it to you myself. No, Ma, at the base I won't have any time to play. Besides, I might not even have a locker to store it in. Let it stay here. I'll play when I come to Piura. No, Palomino, take it with you so you can pass the time better, so you can accompany yourself when you sing. Don't give up your guitar when you love it so much. Oh, God He muttered some broken consolations as he scratched his neck. He sat down, just to do something.
Yes, the photograph was of Palomino making his First Communion. For a long time, Lituma stared at the long, angular little face of the dark-skinned boy with his hair slicked down, dressed all in white, with a candle in his right hand, a missal in his left, and a scapulary around his neck. The photographer had reddened his cheeks and lips.
A scrawny kid, in a rapture, as if he were contemplating the infant Jesus. He might have become an artist, like the ones that sing on the radio and make tours. Everybody says so. Artists shouldn't get drafted. They should be exempt. He was exempt. The old lady crossed herself and started to cry again. As he listened to her crying, Lituma stared at the insects swarming around the lamp. There were dozens, buzzing and crashing again and again into the glass shade, trying to reach the flame. They wanted to kill themselves, the idiots.
Whoever's got his guitar killed him. He was dying for a smoke, but to light up a cigarette in the presence of this grieving lady seemed sacrilegious to him. That's the law. You call that justice? If he hadn't been drafted, he'd be alive. For sure.
Who Killed Palomino Molero?
In the distance they could still hear the guitars, and Lituma suddenly fantasized that the guy playing out there in the darkness, maybe on the riverbank watching the moon, was Palomino. He went into the Air Force because he wanted to. He brought on his own tragedy. Poor baby!

He was going to his death. He did it himself.
http://mta-sts.mail.ecolearning.org.uk/vagyc-clorochina-difosfato-e.php My poor Palomino! I answered every question he asked me. Did Palomino have any enemies? Did anyone ever threaten him? Had she ever heard of his arguing or fighting with someone? Did anyone have any reason to harm him? Had he told her he was thinking of deserting? Asunta meekly answered every question: no, nobody, never. But the truth was that the lieutenant had never thought of asking if the kid had been drafted or if he enlisted. You, in the Air Force?
In Talara? Planes crash; do you want to scare me to death? How could you do it without talking to me first? Because if I did, you'd have said no, Mama. But why, Palomino? Because I have to go to Talara.
Because it's a matter of of life and death, Mama. Why did you do this to me, Palomino? A shadow pulled it away.
