Argentina, September 10, 2011
Today, the Justice of Salta received the results of DNA made, based on traces found at the scene of the crime. On Monday they’ll announce if the tests match with those accused of murdering and raping the French Moummi and Bouvier.
The judge who leads the case, Martin Perez, said the results of studies conducted by a laboratory at the University of Buenos Aires will be given first to the three lawyers for each of the accused.
For now, the judge argued that there is no DNA from strangers, denying media reports that claimed that version.
The genetic fingerprinting would belong to the detainees, Gustavo Lasi of 24 years old, Clemente Santos Vera of 32, and Daniel Vilte Laxi of, 24, who are the main suspects of having beaten, raped and shot the European girls.
The five samples were taken from vaginal and anal swabs of their bodies, which were sent to the City of Buenos Aires on 26 August.
In recent statements, Lasi had confirmed that he had raped Moummi, but denied his involvement with their murder. Thus, he acussed Vilte Laxi and Vera of killing the French girls.
But both stressed their innocence and described him as a “liar” regarding the reconstruction of the event.
