A 41-year-old businessman whose dismembered remains were found in a suitcase left a strange message to his mum before he died.
The remains of millionaire, Fernando Pérez Algaba, were discovered by a stream in the town of Ingeniero Budge, Buenos Aires Province on Sunday (23 July), after he went missing while visiting Argentina from his home in Barcelona, Spain.
Police managed to identify Algaba by his fingerprints and distinctive tattoos, and an autopsy revealed he had been shot three times before being dismembered.
"It's incredible how there are such evil people in the world that while you're thinking of helping them, they're thinking of destroying you," he said.
His post about being 'destroyed' wasn't the only one that stood out as odd after Algaba was found dead, as attention has also been called to a message he addressed to his mum.
Algaba began: "Hello, mum, I needed to clear my head as always."
The millionaire went on to say that his time spent 'clearing his head' had resulted in a realisation.
"From here, I am realising two things: that we can't escape from problems and that problems will follow us," he wrote.
When police searched Algaba's apartment, they were unable to find his phone or wallet.
Of those companies, it has been reported one had been accused of fraud, another had no tax identification number and a third was in debt.
Algaba's actions made him the subject of lawsuits as creditors pursued him for years.
Algaba’s brother, Rodolfo Pérez Algaba, has expressed hopes authorities will be able to find the person responsible for Algaba's death.
“I’ve been here for three days and hardly sleep, thinking, breaking my head, how could this happen,” he said after his brother's body was found. “But I’m not going to sit still, I’m not going to do justice with my own hands, but I hope that justice will be done.”
Police were first made aware about Algaba's remains after children discovered a red suitcase by the river, inside which Algaba's legs and forearm were found.
Police discovered another whole arm in the stream before finding the missing head and torso a few days later.
