Adrian Leiva Dies Meeting his Dream of Returning to Cuba

The circumstances regarding Leiva's death remain unclear, however, Miguel Saludes informed the world of Leiva's passing yesterday.

He died, tragically, attempting to return to Cuba, quite a noble endeavor in my view. It's difficult to come to terms with the fact that his return ended the way that it did. It's as if it ended before it should.

As I stated, it is unclear how he died. His sister says there was not even a scratch on his body. The others accompanying him are currently being detained in the political police station of La Habana, Villa Maristas.

The fact that they are alive and Leiva is not raises concerns about how exactly this came to be. I don't put it past the Cuban government to be responsible for this.
