AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Morley Turrand is a photographer artist and one of his special prints is called 'Escena de un Asesinato', which means murder scene. It is a picture of a place where a Mexican revolutionary, called El Roto, was shot and killed in 1994. Before he had taken the picture, he had been given a doll that might have been modeled on El Roto by a beautiful mysterious woman who calls herself La Coronela, the name of a heroine of the Revolution of 1910. One of the prints of the picture seems to show a mysterious figure in it but that must be a flaw in the print. A woman buys the print and her and her husband are found mysteriously murdered. So are others who buy unblemished versions of the print.'
