The former private secretary of Argentine Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, Fabián Gutiérrez, has been found dead after more than 24 hours of intensive search. There have been four arrests and a confession.
The body was located in one of the homes searched on Saturday in El Calafate, Santa Cruz province. His body was buried and the judge spoke of a hypothesis of “extortionate, passionate crime”, although Gutiérrez had presented himself as repentant in the case of the corruption notebooks affecting the vice president, reports the Argentine daily Clarín.
Gutiérrez had presented himself as repentant in the cause known as “the notebooks of bribery” and was in El Calafate a few weeks ago where he decided to comply with the coronavirus quarantine.
The body was buried in a courtyard, “with a blow to the head,” and everything indicates that the murder was committed in Gutiérrez’s house and his body “moved in the white van that was in the house” where it was found.
The case is reminiscent of that of prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who was found dead while investigating the possible cover-up by the Kirchner government of the attack on the Israeli-Argentine Mutual Association (AMIA) in Buenos Aires in 1994.
It seems that anyone who dares to testify in court against the Kirchners is so unlucky that he ends up dying in strange circumstances.
