“Around 11pm on Sunday night, November 5th, responding to a phone call by a passer-by, police inves- tigators in Bogota found two men sitting on the steps outside the Lourdes Church in Bogota. One of the men had an arm around the other man's shoulder. Neither man was alive.” So begins Andres Duque in a post that looks into possible explanations for the men's death and analyzes how the Colombian media reported the story.
