While the investigation into the death of Emily Rodrigues Santos Gomesthe Brazilian model who died after fall from an apartment in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Recoleta, a lesion found during autopsy suggests that he could have acted in self-defense and the fact would be a “homicide”. This would complicate the declaration of the employer Francisco Saenz Valienteonly detainee in the casewhile awaiting the declaration of two other witnesses.
According to the report signed by the forensic doctor Héctor Di Salvo, the 26-year-old suffered 29 injuries, between bruises, traumatisms and fractures, which caused his death. But his family lawyer, Ignacio Trimarco, focused on the called “lesion 18”which could prove that it was a crime and not a suicide.

In the results of the study, in that lesion it is clarified: “excoriative and parchment area 13 by 9 centimeters, with drag pattern on thorax and abdomen right at the level of the right hypochondrium”. According to the lawyer, this scratch, this dragging lesion, “is indicative that she was resisting, leaning against the window, and ends up being pushed. If you want to throw yourself, you jump and jump headfirst.”
Speaking to Télam, the lawyer also described that the bottom edge of window of the defendant’s apartment where Emmily fell “is 90 centimeters from the floor, that is to say at the same height of the chest“.
The forensic study revealed that Rodrigues, who arrived in Argentina in 2018 to study Medicine and worked as a model, suffered a “extensive damage all over his body.” In addition to more than 20 superficial injuries, he had polytraumatisms that caused his deathand what are they compatible with the fall”.
“His lungs were tornas well as his liver. He suffered a triple fracture in his pelvis and an open fracture in his right thigh. His skull, on the other hand, did not show trauma.”, the document says.
Other tests to be expected
After the event occurred, the attorney Rafael Cuneo Libaronawhich represents the agricultural businessman, indicated that in addition to Emmily they were in his client’s department her friend JMM and two other women identified as “Dafne” and “Lía”. The latter would have withdrawn before the fall occurred.

On the other hand, a new expert opinion is expected to be carried out on the recordings of the calls to the 911 emergency number made by Sáenz Valiente. These are the audios in which he is heard saying, “Try to come quickly (…) She’s screaming a lot, she’s like possessed”in reference to the young woman.
“For us it is clearly heard that she is asking for help and that’s how they interpreted it too Some neighborslike a woman from a building across the street who also called 911 to say that, before she fell, the girl was asking them to call the police,” revealed the lawyer who asked for a leak to leave the voice of the victim spotlight.
Police also kidnapped from the property used condoms that they were sent to DNA and firearms experts, which were apparently stored and not used. curiously no drugs were founddespite the fact that the defendant and Emmily’s friend, JMM, acknowledged that they had consumed alcoholic beverages, cocaine, marijuana and the substance known as “tusi”.
