The body of a self-made cryptocurrency billionaire was found dismembered and stuffed in a suitcase in Argentina on Wednesday. The victim has been identified as Fernando Perez Algaba, who was 30 years old.
Algaba was last seen alive on July 19, when he was supposed to return the keys to an apartment he had rented in Buenos Aires. When he failed to show up or answer his phone, the property owner filed a missing person’s report.
On Sunday, a group of children found a red suitcase filled with body parts while playing by a stream near the apartment. The police were called and they found Algaba’s legs and forearms in the suitcase. His other arm was found in the stream.
On Wednesday, the police found the missing head and torso. They said the body parts were cleanly amputated, suggesting the work of a professional.
The police sent the body for autopsy and the report revealed that Algaba was shot three times before his body was chopped up. They were able to identify Algaba by his fingerprints and the distinctive tattoos on the body parts.
Algaba was a well-known cryptocurrency influencer with almost one million followers on Instagram. He had accumulated his wealth by renting luxury vehicles and selling cryptocurrency. He had been living in Argentina for a week before his alleged murder.
The police have arrested one person in connection with Algaba’s death and are investigating why he was killed. They suspect that he was killed over his numerous debts.
This is a shocking and disturbing case. It is a reminder that even the most successful people can be victims of crime. It is important to take steps to protect yourself, no matter how wealthy or successful you may be.
