The bad weather conditions forced to reschedule for Sunday the activities to commemorate a crime that still horrifies and for which justice has not yet been done: they were fulfilled 25 years since the triple femicide of Cipolletti. The daughter of one of the victims, who was two years old at the time of the events, spoke to the Neuquén press and stated that the only one detained for the events “was not.”

Through social networks, with a poster where you could read “Cipolletti, capital of femicide” and “more struggle and rebellion”, the mobilization was invited to demand justice for the sisters María Emilia (24) and Paula González (17) and their friend Verónica Villar (22).

The three girls went for a walk around the city, something they did regularly, but they did not return home. That day, November 9, 1997, was the last time they were seen alive.

For the case it was only Carlos Kielmasz detained as “necessary participant” in the crime of “kidnapping followed by death”. This week Agustina, the daughter of María Emilia González, who is now 27 years old, told Radio y Televisión Neuquén that “Kielmasz is asking for temporary exits, but the reality is that no psychologist gave a positive report. It is proven that he is a psychopath.” .

For Augustine, “Kielmasz alone did not go” and remarked: “But until he speaks and does not say what happened, we will not know“. “I don’t think I’m the only one (involved). For me he is covering for someone, “said the young woman, who recalled that, at her time, Kielmasz” voluntarily approached to hand over the murder weapon and went from being a witness to a suspect. ”

When the families realized that the young women did not return, they filed a police complaint and the investigation began. an unprecedented sweep. Dozens of neighbors participated and joined the search in solidarity, but two days later, on November 11, Dante Caballero, with his sheepdog, found the bodies of the young women half-buried in an area known as Los Olivillos, next to the railroad tracks.

According to the autopsy, the victims presented stab wounds, gunshot wounds and blows, everything indicated and left clear evidence that they had suffered a lot of violence before being murdered. The community of the region was dismayed by what happened, massive mobilizations were carried out led by the parents of the victims, Juan and Ofelia Mosconi and Ulises González and Susana Guareschi, demanding justice.

Maria Emilia’s daughter said that It was only when he was 15 years old that he understood “how they were executed and the brutality of the act” and added that he hoped that the detainee would tell how the events were, although he was pessimistic: “I don’t have much faith,” he said.

Despite popular demand, the investigation failed to clarify the fact and on July 5, 2001, the Second Chamber of General Roca sentenced Kielmasz to life imprisonment and Guillermo González Pino to 18 years in prison. However, in 2002the The Supreme Court of Justice acquitted the latter of the triple femicide.

That same year, on May 23, Cipolletti was shocked again with a second triple femicide, that of Mónica García, Carmen Marcovecchio and Alejandra Carbajales, who were murdered in a clinical analysis laboratory in the city. This crime also remains unpunished.
