Tessari, a Venezuelan working for Colombian Media, was wounded in the head by shrapnel from a tear gas canister fired by military police in March 1992. She was hurt while covering an antigovernment march. She never recuperated from the head wound and died of complications. Her case was brought before the courts, but no one was ever charged in her death
