Liliana Esther Sánchez assured that she only found out what happened when the police arrived at the home where the mutilated and partially burned body of the victim was found, last Saturday.
The mother of the main defendant for the femicide of María Alejandra Abbondanza, the woman who was found dismembered and burned last Saturday inside a house in the Buenos Aires city of Campana, assured this Monday that she had “nothing to do” with the In fact, when declaring as accused before the prosecutor of the case, who keeps her detained along with her husband and her son, judicial sources reported.
According to what was revealed by the spokespersons, Liliana Esther Sánchez (64) assured that she only found out what happened when the police arrived at the home where the mutilated and partially burned body of the victim was found last Saturday.
The accused declared this Monday before the prosecutor Ana Laura Brizuela, in charge of the Functional Unit of Instruction (UFI) 2 of Campana, who continued this afternoon with the investigations of the other two detainees, Agustín Leonel Chiminelli (24), and his retired father, Carlos Rubén Chiminelli (69) in the framework of the case for the “qualified homicide” of Abbondanza (38).
“The investigation is still at a fairly early stage, which makes it difficult to determine exactly what the role of each one was. The consequences are different if we impute to them (all three) the fact or the cover-up, which in the case of the parents is not punishable. Today the three defendants are here,” said a source with access to the case. Meanwhile, an investigator confirmed that on September 10 an ex-partner of the young man now detained filed a complaint against her in the Campana Family Court for violence. “The Court ordered an approach order for the young woman’s house and workplace, but they did not notify him because last Friday he was not located,” an investigation told Télam.
Meanwhile, another ex-partner, named Milena, made a post on social networks this Sunday in which he described Chiminelli Sr. as a “psychopath”. In addition, it was established that on September 10, an ex-partner of the young man now detained had filed a complaint against her in the Campana Family Court for violence, a fact for which an approach restriction had been ordered.
“You were always a psychopath and a manipulator disguised as a good boy. You made my life miserable while we were bound and there are plenty of witnesses. Until when you broke a tile on your head so I wouldn’t go with my friends,” the young woman said on her Instagram profile. The ex of the now detainee also made reference to the young man’s parents, who according to her “managed him” .
“They saw everything you did and made me go through” and “they managed it because I was their only son, locking me in their house because if I wanted to leave the boy would get violent and if he had already broken things he would start to blow others up in the air”, he added.
“The three of them are crap and I hope they shit rotting. It hurts but a few years ago it could have been me. Several times I saw myself dead in your hands. I always knew what you and your old people could do. I am sure that if many speak, they went through the same ordeal. I had a God apart from being able to get away, but not Maria. I hope you pay everything, “the young woman closed in her story.
The two ex-partners of Chiminelli have already been summoned by the prosecutor Brizuela to testify as witnesses, as well as other people linked to the accused family.
The femicide was discovered last Saturday morning, in a house located in Moreno and Alberdi, Campana, as part of the search for Abbondanza, who had been seen alive for the last time by her daughter around 5:30 p.m. on Friday, when he took his dog for a walk.
Prosecutor Brizuela arranged to review the private cameras and one of them took the moment in which Abbondanza entered the house on the corner by his own means, where the now detained Chiminelli resides.
In addition, at 4 in the morning he went out with the woman’s dog as if he were going to walk it and returned home, a situation that happened again, but this time the animal was no longer wearing the breastplate.
The Police found the breastplate, the leash and the bloody woman’s clothes in a vacant lot located two blocks from the house, while the dog was found loose at five in the morning.
The officers also checked the garbage cans on the block and found a bag similar to those inside the building with a dumbbell, a diver and a towel, all with blood.
With these data, the prosecutor ordered an emergency search of the suspect’s house and it was there that the burned remains of the woman were found on the terrace grill.
After the discovery, the troops apprehended Chimineli and his parents.
The autopsy determined that the victim died of severe head trauma, presumably caused by being hit with a dumbbell, and then the body was mutilated and burned with the intention of making it disappear.
