Rodolfo Jorge Walsh was an Argentine writer, considered the founder of investigative journalism in Argentina. He was murdered on March 25, 1977.
After finishing his primary education in a small town in Rio Negro Province, Walsh moved to Buenos Aires in 1941, where he completed high school. Although he started studying philosophy at university, he abandoned it and held a number of different jobs, mostly as a writer or editor. In the late 1940s he joined the Alianza Libertadora Nacionalista, from which he later moved to the Peronist cause.
Back in Argentina in 1973, Walsh joined the Montoneros radical group, and four years later he was killed during a shoot-out with a special military group that set an ambush for him. His body and some of his writings were never seen again. The day before his death he wrote an Open Letter to the Military Junta protesting that their economic policies were having an even greater effect on ordinary Argentines than their human rights abuses.
