In After the Murder of Albert Lima, Paul Lima has become hellbent on seeking justice on the men that murdered his father. Paul has been trying to catch his father’s killers for thirteen years, while he knows the killers are still residing in a foreign country. The problem is that justice works differently in different parts of the world, and some parts of the world simply don’t believe in it if the money is right. So how does he do it? He tries to catch the killers himself and documents every second of the hunt.
“They kidnapped Albert and took him to the top of a mountain where he was shot several times, and left him there to die.”
Albert Lima was a lawyer, a businessman, and a family man. Albert would travel to Honduras yearly with some attorney friends and fell in love with the place. This is where Albert would befriend a man named Martin Coleman. Martin’s family owned the only bread-making bakery on the island. When the bank threatened to foreclose the bakery, Albert stepped in and lent the family 84 grand to keep their bakery open. The family agreed they would eventually pay him back. The family would make their payments to Albert on time up until the passing of Martin’s father. Martin’s brothers and other family members felt that the deal died when Martin’s father died. They refused to pay Albert back. After countless attempts to get the Coleman’s to pay up through court, the court ultimately decided to give the bakery to Albert as owner.
After finally winning in court, Albert would go back to Honduras. Martin picked Albert up from the airport to go to the bakery, and as soon as they arrive, Martin’s two brothers bust through with guns. Martin runs off and hides as the Colemans beat Albert. They kidnapped Albert and took him to the top of a mountain where he was shot several times and left him there to die. Since then, Paul has been trying to get justice on the guys that killed his father.
