Elson Evelio Becerra Vaca was a Colombian footballer.
A national team player, Becerra participated in the 2001 Copa America as well as the 2003 Confederations Cup, where he became noted for trying to save the life of the collapsed Marc-Vivien Foe. He also featured in Colombia's unsuccessful qualification for the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
Becerra was shot in a night club in his birth town Cartagena together with his friend Alexander Rios, apparently after they had had a fight with a group of men a couple of days earlier.
