New report says Paula Giménez seen alive inside a container
Adriana Paula Giménez, the 31-year old woman found dead in CEAMSE waste landfill on Tuesday, was photographed alive inside a container on Monday by waste collection workers.
Union representatives revealed today three waste collection workers from CLIBA, the company in charge of waste collection in BA City, found Giménez sleeping inside a container in Retiro.
The woman told them she was taking refuge from the cold weather and did not want to leave.
The workers thought Giménez, who went missing on May 16 in Buenos Aires where she was undergoing treatment for schizophrenia, was homeless.
They took a photograph of her to justify why the container was not moved, in what appears a common procedure according to sector representatives.
Later, the waste collection truck experienced mechanical problems and did not continue with its schedule. Another unit took its place, moving the container in which Giménez was sleeping.
This version appears to coincide with autopsy results, which state Giménez died from blunt head trauma between 18 and 24 hours before being found in CEAMSE.
No signs of sexual abuse, stabbing or gun shot were found in her body.
