Hours earlier she had posted a photo of the couple posing with baby shoes, writing: ‘The best wedding gift… the approaching life that is a testimony to the sweetest love.’

Paraguayan Mr Pecci, 45, was gunned down by two men near the Decameron Baru Hotel. His wife – who was not hurt – said one of the gunmen got off a jet ski and ‘without saying a word shot Marcelo twice, once in the face and once in the back’.

The assassins also fired at a security guard, who was Unharmed.

Paraguayan president Mario Abdo Benitez condemned the ‘cowardly murder’ and vowed to redouble the war on organised crime.

Police chief Gen Jorge Luis Vargas said Mr Pecci was one of the most heavily guarded people in his homeland after ‘investigating cases of international terrorism’

Speaking for the first time about Tuesday morning’s crime, Mrs Aguilera said: ‘The day began peacefully and we decided to go to the beach after breakfast, the view is spectacular and it’s our honeymoon.’

She added in quotes carried by Colombian newspaper El Tiempo: ‘Two men attacked Marcelo.

‘They reached the beach on a small boat or jet ski I think, although the truth is I didn’t see it properly.’

Recounting how the killers fled on the same jet ski they had used to reach the beach, she said: ‘We were helped by other people who were on the beach but he was already dead.’

She told the paper: ‘We hadn’t received any threats.

‘Everything happened so quickly. All I remember clearly were the shots and Marcelo on the sand

The pair was on their honeymoon after their wedding last month.

‘The man went straight for Marcelo, he just looked at him and shot him, he didn’t say anything.’

A ‘high command’ criminal investigation unit had been sent to Cartagena, Colombian defence minister Diego Molano said.

Paraguayan and US officials will be integrated into the unit to help identify and prosecute the perpetrators, police said.

Mr Pecci was investigating several high-profile cases in Paraguay, including a shooting at a concert in January where an alleged drug trafficker and a football player’s wife were killed.

Paraguay is South America’s largest marijuana producer.

Growing the plant is still illegal in that country and much of the crop is smuggled into Argentina and Brazil.
