According to his family, Eugui was shot dead in a ranch in San Agustín Loxicha. Rosalinda Martínez, his sister, explained: “My brother decided to spend that quarantine in the ranch, collecting insects, studying, writing for a magazine, looking after a few deers, besides creating content for his blog; nevertheless, on the morning of May 7, the neighbors found him on the floor, covered in blood, dead.” She added that she hopes the crime doesn’t go unpunished.

 
The victim’s family and fellow activists have demanded justice and asked Governor Alejandro Murat and Attorney Rubén Vasconcelos to investigate the case.
