Five men were indicted for murder for killing legendary Puerto Rican boxer Héctor “Macho” Camacho in 2012.
Government prosecutors charged William Rodríguez Rodríguez, Luis Ayala García,Joshua Méndez Romero, Juan Figueroa Rivera and Jesús Naranjo Adorno for the death of Camacho on Nobember 20,2012.
Based on court records, Camacho and a friend were gunned down while sitting in a car outside a bar in Bayamón, Puerto Rico.
Sources said Camacho died at age 50 after being taken off life support four days later, but the case remained unsolved for nearly a decade until the recent arrest of the five suspects.
Gifted with fast feet and quick gloves, Camacho became a three-time Daily News Golden Gloves champion.
During his prime, Camacho sent Sugar Ray Leonard into retirement in 1997, and he also defeated Roberto Duran twice late in the legend’s career.
Camacho also earned fights with superstars including Oscar De La Hoya and Julio Cesar Chavez.
Upon his retirement from the sport of boxing, Camacho finished his career with a record of 79-6-3 with 38 knockouts, and he was never knocked out.
Despite his successful boxing career, Camacho struggled with drug and alcohol problems.
