(CMR) The chopped-up remains of indebted crypto influencer Fernando Perez Algaba were reportedly discovered in a suitcase by a stream in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The red suitcase was found last weekend in Argentina’s capital by children playing nearby. According to reports, the police found the victim’s legs and forearm in the piece of luggage and a whole arm in the stream later, according to the New York Post.
An autopsy revealed that Algaba, who was in his late 30s or early 40s, was shot before his body was segmented. He was identified by his tattoos and fingerprints.
Algaba was reportedly from Argentina but lived in Spain. He was visiting Argentina, where he was murdered.
His head and torso were found on Wednesday after a search. It was believed that he might have been killed over his debts, New York Post reported.
This was despite his Instagram account – with more than 900,000 followers – showing his flashy lifestyle with jet ski rides and luxury cars.
Before he was killed, it was reported that there were “disturbing and chilling posts” on his social media, reported MailOnline.
One of the messages had an audio recording about “evil people thinking of destroying you” and another about how “we cannot escape from problems and that problems will follow us.”
Police are investigating Algaba’s death and have taken one person into custody as a suspect, per the publication.
