Today he will testify in the court of a man of about 40 years detained for being the person responsible for the injuries of women, of which no statements have been made because he has not been able to investigate it because of his condition.
Although the motives are not completely clear, the police has as main hypothesis that the man was the victim of the steal of a horse by the woman’s son and decided to take revenge.
Police learned that both the burned woman, her son and her daughter-in-law were drug addicts, but ruled out the hypothesis that it would have been an accounting settlement for narcotics.
The woman’s son, who allegedly stole a horse from the man recognized as guilty, is older and had no criminal record.
On the other hand, the police suspect that the woman was sprayed with naphtha and then try to burn it.
In addition, the house of the hospitalized victim was also burned and the police presume that this fire was provoked after attacking the woman.
The house, according to the police source, was constructed with precarious materials and on earth floor.
