Unexpected twist in Dalmasso case after FBI forensic report
Investigations in the Nora Dalmasso murder case took an unexpected turn when a new forensic report provided by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation suggested the existence of two different genetic patterns that had remained unnoticed by the Cordoba province authorities before.
According to the report turned in by the FBI, none of the two genetic patterns match those belonging to the two suspects in the case, her son Facundo Macarrón and painter Gastón Zárate.
The FBI however, determined that three complete DNA samples were found in the scene of the crime, one of them belonging to her husband, Marcelo Macarrón, and the other two belonging to two unidentified people, who authorities now believe they may have been responsible for the crime.
Traces of Macarrón’s DNA were found the victim’s vagina, a belt and one sheet.
However, Macarrón was away on a trip in Punta del Este when his wife was killed, although he admitted to having sexual relations with her before going away.
Nora Dalmasso was killed in March 2006 in her Villa Golf Club country house, in the Cordoba province.
According to forensic investigators, she was strangled with a sheet right after having sexual relations.
