GUATEMALA CITY (AP) — Relatives, neighbors and friends held a traditional wake Friday for a young Guatemalan woman who was shot dead last week by a U.S. Border Patrol officer near Laredo, Texas. The body of Claudia Patricia Gomez arrived in her home village of La Union Los Mendoza in the township of San Juan Ostuncalco for a wake and burial.
