Walter Espinoza, head of the Organismo de Investigacion Judicial (OIJ), explained that writing on the wall of the Dutch couple home proved key to identified the alleged killers, matched with writings found during a raid of the home of one of the alleged three killers, identified as Angulo (two brothers) and Bertarioni.

“On one of the walls was a writing that had alluded to what happened in the place. We compared it with writing from a door in a closet where we detained one of the Angulos. We compared them and it was positive,” said Espinoza.

Miguel Abarca, prosecutor, said “the organization was hitting violently rural communities. We have linked these people to 8 aggravated robberies, including one of attempted homicide.”
