I have to say this is a little bit weird, but it has to be a coincidence. The following were Chávez supporters. They have died in the last 11 months:

  • Luis Tascón, former Chávez deputy and later rejected by Chávez, died on 12 August 2010 (cancer)

  • William Lara, governor of Guárico, died on 10 September 2010 (car accident, drown in river)
  • Luis Ceballos Lobo, an elected deputy to the Latin American Parliament, died on 11 September 2010
  • Lina Ron, a notorious Chávez supporter and gang leader, died on 5 March 2011 (heart attack or intoxication)
