Candela Case: Police offers 400 thousand on reward for information about the crime
Argenina, September 3, 2011
Police authorities are still investigating the murder of the girl Candela Sol Rodriguez, of 11 years old, who was abducted on August 22 and found dead on August 31.
The Government of the Province of Buenos Aires increased the reward from 100 thousand to 400 thousand pesos if someone brings data about the kidnapping and murder of the child.
Researchers have several hypotheses, including the one related to ‘drug trafficking’ that came with the name of the aunt of Candela, María Alejandra Romagnoli, who owns a supermarket in the town of José León Suárez, and is a former sister in law of Carola Labrador, Candela’s mother, and was kidnapped in July, for about 15 hours.
Romagnoli was married and had two children with Carola Labrador’s brother.
Carola worked in the local of her former siste inlaw until the disappearance of Candela.
According to the research, “One of the sisters of Carola, Betiana would be the one used to give the band the data to make their abductions, as they always worked with complete information”.
So it was that Romagnoli accused her for the kidnapping, since the day before, her husband had taken a significant amount of money for the insurance of a truck.
Thus emerges the name of the girl’s uncle, the “Egg”, husband of Betiana and her couple for 7 years.
According to sources of the case, “the ‘Egg’ is called Martín Romagnoli, is also cousin of Carola, and it is rumored that he was also kidnapped two months ago and held captive for a week but paid 20 thousand pesos to be released and would be connected with the drug lords of the town”.
According to police sources, “Candela Sol Rodríguez’s body was abandoned by his murderers in the same place of Hurlingham where a gang of kidnappers freed two years ago the son of a drug dealer operating in the west of Greater Buenos Aires”.
The hijackers, two years ago, had captured in the party of San Martín, the son of a drug dealer in the western suburbs of Buenos Aires and asked $ 300,000 for his release, the father paid for his release and let him safe in same place where Candela was found murdered at the intersection of Avenida Vergara and Highway West.
The father of the kidnapped boy promised retaliation against the hijackers beginning his own investigation, stating that “his revenge would be with the children of each of them”.
