An Haitian suspected of being a multiple assassin for President Aristide's Lavalas party, is held captive by a vigilante, three days after the president's departure. He was arrested by armed citizens of Petit Goave, who proceeded to stone him and then burn him alive. Aristide's heavily armed militants, known as chimères, had terrorized people while the president was still in office, taking the place of a corrupt and ineffectual police force.
