Experts confirm when the French tourists were killed
Expert's released a report on the bodies of the French tourists Cassandre Bouvier and Houria Moumni that indicated both of them were killed 13 or 14 days before they were found, last July 29 in the zone of El Mirador, Salta province.
The spokesman of Salta’s Judicial Branch, Marcelo Báez, told reporters that the investigation was held by entomologist Rossana Ayón, and the report has been delivered to Judge Martín Pérez.
The expert’s report confirmed the data of the women’s death and ruled out the hypothesis that stated that the victims had been kidnapped between July 15 and 29, when they were found.
There are seven detained over the double crime: Gustavo Laxi (24-years-old); his father, Walter Laxi (42); his girlfriend, María Fernanda Cañizares (24); her brother, Federico Cañizares (23); a tourist guide, Darío Ramos (47); gardener Santos Vera (37); and Daniel Vilte.
The judge is now waiting for the results of the analysis of the DNA tests that compares the genetic trails left in the victims’ bodies and the tests of the detained.
