Today begins the trial for the crime of Loriana Tissera, the 14-year-old teenager, shot to the head in Villa Azalais.
The incident occurred on May 25, 2020 when Loriana was playing at her grandmother’s house with her 9-year-old brother, at that time a criminal got off a motorcycle and without a word shot her in the neck to steal her cell phone. In the street, her accomplice with whom she ran away was waiting for him.
For Loriana’s crime three criminals will sit in the dock and will be tried by a popular jury. They are Alan Abregú Valverde, who was 23 years old at the time of the incident, identified as the one who was driving the motorcycle and helped Silva to flee, and Diego Andrés Silva, who was 22 years old at the time of the incident, and who is accused of having carried out the shot and stole the teen’s cell phone. On the other hand, there is a third accused Kevin Márquez, who will be tried for aggravated concealment, the young man was the one who bought the stolen cell phone.
In dialogue with Canal C Córdoba, Estela Maris Tissera, the teenager’s grandmother, spoke. “Loriana was killed at the door of my house, they shot her in the head, we are waiting for justice to be done for her. In five seconds they destroyed her,” Estela said.
“There are three accused, they are from the neighborhood, they lived a few blocks from our house,” said Loriana’s grandmother. And she added “we are asking for life for both, for the one who was driving the motorcycle and for the one who triggered it.”
“We hope that justice will be done for her, the trial will be with a popular jury, it is what we wanted and that is why we waited so long for this,” he concluded.
Since morning, family, friends and classmates from Loriana’s school demonstrated in front of Courts II asking for justice for the teenager.
