Miguel went to a place called Divine Paradise. He was brought there in a truck with 25 other bodies and a police escort.
Divine Paradise is the municipal cemetery in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The gangs of the city roam freely there, robbing those who come to mourn. If you go there on official business, such as burying the dead, the police will come along to protect you.
