Claudia Membreno Gomez was scheduled to fly to the U.S. from Honduras the day after gunmen shot her in front of her four children. In Alexandria, her friends and her relatives came together to remember her and support the family.
In Alexandria, Gustavo Gomez was fixing up an apartment for his whole family: wife Claudia and their four children, who lived in Honduras. He was painting it in the cream and brick tones Claudia had chosen. “I cannot accept that this happened,” he said of his wife’s killing. “I will never get over it.”
