They accused an Argentine filmmaker of abusing minors, uploaded a video saying goodbye and found him dead

They found dead in Córdoba the Franco-Argentine filmmaker Iván Noel, 52, who was accused of sexual abuse against minors and had already been convicted in France for an identical crime against a 15-year-old adolescent. Noel was found dead in the motorhome he had in the Tiro Federal neighborhood of Alta Gracia, where he lived. Suicide is presumed.

Before dying, the film director had published a farewell letter on the YouTube channel Noel Films, with a letter titled “The goodbye without sadness of Iván Noel” and a sensitive scene for readers that will not be reproduced.

“I end my chapter without depression or sadness, or with any kind of regret or bitterness, but as Max (referring to a friend who years ago made the determination to kill himself by taking a lethal pill) logically and clearly. I was never able to harm people, much less the most vulnerable ”, defended the filmmaker in the article.

The Public Prosecutor’s Office of the capital city of the Santa María department requested that an autopsy be carried out on the corpse to determine the causes of death, in a fact that was temporarily classified as “death of doubtful etiology”.

Meanwhile, the prosecutor for Crimes against Sexual Integrity of the city of Córdoba, Alicia Chirino, investigates a complaint that three adolescents of Jesús María filed against Noel for alleged sexual abuse that had been committed during the filming of the movie “Cordero of God ”, shot between the end of 2018 and the beginning of 2019.

The official had charged Noel with alleged sexual abuse, according to article 306 in fine, which supposes a “slight suspicion”, for which the arrest was not issued. Among other measures, the judicial officer awaited psychological and psychiatric expert opinions from both the accused and the complainants.

It is worth noting that Noel had already been convicted in France of sexual abuse against a 15-year-old teenager. As in the middle of the investigation he traveled to Argentina, where he settled, and avoided extradition, the trial in that country was carried out “in absentia.” The sentence was appealed and was not yet final.

Days ago, the prosecutor had raided Noel’s residence in Alta Gracia (the city to which he had moved since Jesús María) and had hijacked computers and telephones, among other elements.

The lawyer Fernando Moyano defended the filmmaker. He said that he had not been able to access the file, since the investigation had not been completed. In statements to radio Punto 11, Moyano confirmed the death of the filmmaker. “Unfortunately, this morning (yesterday) Mr. Noel turned up dead. It was a drastic decision, “he said.
