This Wednesday began the eighth hearing of the trial for Nora Dalmasso, murdered in November 2006 in Río Cuarto. María Carmen Pelleritti, a friend of the victim, questioned in her statement the investigation of the case that she carried out, arguing that the investigation was “morbid” and she was only concerned with “looking for lovers and not the murderer.”

In addition, the witness stated: “A morbid investigation was carried out into the death of a person who was murdered several times. It was a femicide against a woman, they rolled over her and trampled on her a thousand times.” And she added that the investigation of the case “came out in the search for (Nora’s) lovers and not for a murderer. While they were looking for lovers, the murderer escaped.”

Three other testimonies are expected for the rest of the day. Carina del Valle Flores, at that time the family’s maid. Also Verónica Valentín, maid of businessman Michel Rohrer, who allegedly helped clean the room where Nora was murdered. And finally Marta Lamborizzio, pedicurist of the victim.

Macarrón is the only accused in this process and is responsible for the crime of “homicide qualified by the link, by treachery, and by price or remuneration promise in an ideal competition”, which contemplates life imprisonment.
