It was a full circle moment for Pineda 15 years after his brother's death at the hands of Salazar Díaz.
The death of Jhonier Leandro, Pineda's brother, occurred on February 4, 2008, during a house party where Salazar Díaz arrived with a minor under the age of 15 who was in a relationship with Pineda.
Later on that night, an altercation ensued with Salazar Díaz pointing a gun at Pineda.
Realising the danger his brother was in, Leandro intervened and stood in front of him as he took a bullet to the chest, and died instantly.
While Salazar Díaz fled the scene of the crime, he was subsequently arrested and sentenced to 11 years in prison before he was released in 2019 and got a job as a bicycle mechanic.

His release was a turning point for Pineda who vowed to exact revenge for his brother's untimely murder.
Spending three years laying the groundwork for his elaborate plan, he created a fake profile on social media assuming the identity as a woman feigning interest in Salazar Díaz in the hope of meeting him in reality.
His scheme went to plan as he indeed met his target in a secluded place and shot him from a motorcycle he was riding on.
On January 11, a month after the murder, Pineda was arrested and prosecuted after being charged with aggravated homicide, following witness accounts and footage from security cameras around the area.
