Still awaiting the definitive conclusion of the autopsy, the first forensic analysis of the body of Esther López, the young woman found dead last Saturday, February 5, in the Valladolid municipality of Traspinedo after 23 days missing, it does show signs of violence and could be transferred to the place where it was located the previous hours. As revealed to
‘The North of Castile’ sources of the investigation, the first study places his death around the day of his disappearance, the early morning of January 13 and the body shows, according to the first indications, signs of violence compatible with “traumatisms” suffered before his death.
Predictably, the autopsy will last another day, until this Tuesday, in order to confirm with certainty the ultimate cause of Esther López’s death.
What has been deduced from this first analysis is thathe body of the young woman could be transferred to the place where it was found the hours before its location, on Saturday morning, by a «walker». It is one of the hypotheses that have always been considered, since his body was found “within the radius” of the raids and the search operation. Likewise, the corpse was found “on the surface” and “in sight”. Already on Saturday, Colonel Miguel Recio admitted that it was “very unlikely, although not impossible” that the deceased would not have been detected if she had remained there from the beginning.
