In addition, they expect expert reports on knives who were kidnapped from Lescano’s house. This is with the intention of establishing if any of them was used to cause the victim the cuts on the thorax.
Prosecutor Pontecorvo also charged Lescano with the crime of “aggravated robbery”, since her fanny pack was found next to Susana’s body, but without any of her belongings, according to a judicial source revealed to telam. ”Everything suggests that Susana had money in his possession for the sale of some of his household appliances, which he had completed hours before his disappearance. His identity document was not found either, ”said the same person.

The autopsy on the body of Susana Cáceres
The result of the autopsy indicated that Cáceres suffered a period of agony and that she was sexually abused. In addition, that he had multiple injuries to his chest, that he suffered head trauma, and that the date of death is between 7-10 days prior to the discovery of the body.
Therefore, investigators believe that the place where the body was found is a secondary crime scene. That is they killed her elsewhere and that he or the murderers went to throw the body where they later found it in the middle of the pastures.
