No biological evidence
During the inspection of the house in Cubas de la Sagra, where César lived with one of his ex-partners, no biological evidence was found when the samples in which the Luminol reagent was applied were negative.
The appearing agents carried out a visual inspection in the Vallecas apartment and they collected biological remains to determine if they were the victim’s blood.

There were also no marks on the walls that made indicate that a violent act had occurred. However, the agent has stated that “it could be” that a dismemberment had occurred when asked if there were traces that would suggest that a dismemberment took place.
The attorney for the private prosecution, Alexis Socias, has inquired about whether it could be that the Luminol does not detect blood in the event that the room had been covered with plastic, to which he said “could be”.
The plastic strategy
Another member of the Scientific Police has detailed the remains found in Sebastián Gómez’s warehouse, where biological remains were collected on the floor and in the sink. Samples of footprints located in a carafe of water.
“If the space of the ship is covered with plastic, is it possible switch the stage and what is not positive in Luminol? the lawyer has asked him, to which he has answered that “perfectly”.
