The Trujillo Massacre was a series of murders perpetrated between 1988 and 1994 in the town of Trujillo, Valle del Cauca Department in southwestern Colombia by paramilitaries and the Cali Cartel with the complicity of active members of the Colombian military and police. After 20 years, Retired Colonel Alirio Antonio Urena was sentenced for killings carried out against various residents of the town of Trujillo. Colombia has sent over 10,000 students to the US Army institution called The School of the Americas, where it is believed they learned their brutal tactics.
