According to police sources, the journalist had been kidnapped two weeks earlier when he was snatched by armed men while leaving a cinema with his family in Victoria. His body was found partially buried alongside a decapitated body of an unidentified female victim.

Chávez’s Twitter feed had been silent since May 22, reports added.
