It was Galván himself who made the police report for the disappearance on Friday, arguing that he had left for work at 6.30 and when he returned in the afternoon the woman was not at home.

At that time, the now confessed femicide had assured the police that, allegedly, the woman had gone out for a walk in the area of ​​Cerro La Banderita, in La Falda. Based on this information, a rapid and intense search operation was mounted with personnel from the Fire, Police, Civil Defense and other organizations, both by land with dogs and by air with drones and a helicopter.

However, as the hours passed and as a result of the “contradictions” in the testimonial statement and for “violating the distancing order” that was imposed months ago, the Cosquín Prosecutor, Jorgelina Gómez, requested the arrest of the suspicious.
