The story of Pedro Daniel Barrientos and Andrea
Barrientos and Andrea met less than a year ago, since he had just become a widow and I had a 14 year old sonwhile she was separated and is the mother of a 12-year-old girl.
“We wanted to travel, buy our house. Live what we had left, start a business. We also had the project of leaving Buenos Aires. Everything was very complicated. We couldn’t,” he said.
Barrientos’s widow agreed with the victim’s companions in stating that Daniel “already wanted to retire” and that he was waiting for “the response from ANSES” to then dedicate himself to his new “projects”.
“Lately, I no longer wanted to go to work, I don’t know if it was out of fear, but I wanted to enjoy life and the family we put together,” he said.
Barrientos left his house this Monday morning and went to his job: “He always sent me messages when he arrived and the schedules of his journey. Today he did exactly the same. Even when it rains we always talk about the brakes, that I was going to regulate the brakes”.
“Then he told me that he was leaving for Vernazza. I told him to call me when he arrived, so that he would not use his cell phone while he was driving, and he did not answer me anymore. I sent him a couple of messages and he no longer answered me. All the tours he he was telling me,” revealed Andrea.

Since it seemed “strange” that he did not communicate with her again, she thought of going to González Catán to look for him, “as she did many other times” and talking to one of the inspectors to see if they knew anything.
“It seemed strange to me that even having lost his cell phone, he had not communicated with me,” he said, while recounting that “all the routes that Daniel took were very dangerous” and that his group “did not have a security camera.”
“I found out from people from the company that they had killed him. His son already knows. My 12-year-old daughter has a developmental delay and, although she has her father, she called Daniel ‘my father Dani’. I don’t know how I’m going to break the news“, lament.
