The last farewell to Candela
Buenos Aires Province, August 18, 2011
“Justice” is the word most pronounced in the painful farewell of Candela Rodriguez, from family, friends and neighbors.
The funeral procession was accompanied by a crowd from the funeral house ‘Lizardo’, where the wake took place to the Hurlingham Municipal Cemetery Park.
Through tears, people recalled Candela with pain of only eleven years old, who was kidnapped for a week and killed two days ago, while her body was found yesterday inside a bag.
The case has generated so much sensitivity in the population and there were some incidents among people who had gone to the cemetery against the family. “You would have returned the money,” shouted one woman against the girl’s mother, Carola Rodriguez.
The girl’s father, who has been noted in a somewhat shady position in the murder of his daughter (since the main hypothesis is a revenge), did not attend the funeral.
The man, who was imprisoned for theft on the road, as commonly called “pirate of the asphalt,” requested to expand his statement and also would have sought protection, which could strongly change the way of research.
