The only candidate for the presidency of a 2nd-division team in Ecuador was shot to death just minutes before the beginning of club elections.
Police officer Juan Vinueza said Aucas club director Monica Gordon was killed on Thursday.
Ramiro Gordon, Monica's father, told radio La Red that somebody entered his daugther's office and opened fire after saying that she shouldn't have become involved with Aucas. Ramiro Gordon is also a club official and one of the team's top investors.The article goes on to say that she had been vowing to thoroughly audit the club's books, so perhaps she was killed by someone who didn't want that to happen. If so, one would think killing her would merely make such an audit more likely, but perhaps that's just the gringo in me manifesting itself.
