It is the most compelling video Carlos Jimenez has taped as a journalist but he sincerely hopes it will never be broadcast. If it is, he will be dead.
The tape features Jimenez talking to camera and naming those who have turned his community in El Naranjo, northern Guatemala, into a nest of corruption, violence and fear.
The video, already passed on to trusted contacts, is to be aired only if the reporter is murdered. "It is to be posthumous. I detail who has been doing all the killings. You'll get to see it if they kill me."
Yensi Roberto Ordoñez, a TV host with Guatemala's provincial Canal 14 cable station, was found dead with knife wounds to his neck and chest in May after receiving threats his bosses said were related to his work.
