While working in the Mexican Mining industry, Canadian citizen Bruce Vigfusson became entangled in a violent crime in September of 2012 when he defended himself during a home invasion. Recently, while serving a four-and-a-half year sentence resulting from his involvement in that event, Vigfusson died. Vigfusson’s son Colt was alerted of the death not by official channels, but via one of his father’s fellow prison inmates.
According to an initial report into the cause of death given to Colt, his father died of pulmonary edema (a condition caused by excess fluid in the lungs) and cardiomyopathy (a condition where the heart muscle is abnormal) (CTV News Winnipeg).
Vigfusson’s family, who live in Manitoba, have requested that the body be sent home for a proper autopsy.
Obviously, this story raises all kinds of concerns for Mexican Mining Industry Workers. Joint-venture projects between Canada and Mexico are common, and with concerns over drug-related cartel violence already gumming up the works, stories like these do nothing to alleviate anybody’s fears.
It’s our hope to track this story and bring you fresh updates as we can. In the meantime, we reiterate our hope that Mexico’s government can get a handle on the situation, and not just for the sake of Mining Industry workers. When justice prevails, everyone benefits.
