Alejandro Gonzalez Malave

Alejandro Gonzalez Malave (approx 1958-1986) was a Puerto Rican undercover agent who gained wide national fame with the Cerro Maravilla case scandal.

Gonzalez Malave, an outspoken university political leader, graduated as a policeman in 1979, the same year he went to work undercover. He allegedly infiltrated an organization of independist students and drove Carlos Soto Arrivi[?] and Arnaldo Dario Rosario[?] to an ambush in the referred place. According to some versions, Soto Arrivi and Rosario were unarmed and kneeled down when they were shot by the police.

When the Cerro Maravilla trial was televised all over Puerto Rico, Gonzalez Malave, one of the accused, gained wide fame all across the island. His face became a common sight on Puerto Rican newspaper covers, and he received constant air time on television, because he had to take the stand many times during the trial. He was found not guilty of all charges, and he published a book in Paris.

In late April of 1986, Gonzalez Malave was arriving at his mother's house in Bayamon, when he received three gun shots from an unknown assailant. He died instantly.
