They found exrugbier Marcelo Longhi dead and investigate a crime

It all started with the discovery of a Ford Ranger a few meters from Provincial Route 42. The Luján Rural Patrol Command, in the Northwest area of ​​Greater Buenos Aires, arrived at the place after a call to 911, checked the truck and in the The box found the body of Marcelo Longhi, a 58-year-old ex-rugbier, current president of the Municipal Club of the City of Vicente López (Vilo) and an employee of that commune since 2012. They are investigating if he was murdered and for this the autopsy will be key.

The Police arrived at the place of the discovery on RP 42, at the access to La Choza town, located two kilometers from Route 47, alerted by neighbors. The gray Ford Ranger was 15 meters from the asphalt strip, between some grasslands, explained the sources of the investigation.

The body that was in the box had “abrasions on his arms, knees and feet, with bleeding on his face,” they detailed. They also noticed a cutting wound on the back of the neck. And they expanded that the victim’s cell phone and several cans of beer were found in the interior of the truck. It is also said that a significant sum of money would have been found.

The truth is that what most caught the attention of the investigators is that one kilometer from where the truck was, on the Arroyo La Choza bridge, the experts found signs of dragging and empty beer cans similar to those in the victim’s Ford Ranger.

In principle, it is believed that Longhi could have been the victim of an attack in that place and his body dragged to the bed of the truck that, later, was transferred a kilometer to the place of the discovery.

The case is being investigated by the prosecutor Mariana Suárez of the decentralized UFI 9 of Luján, who ordered that an autopsy be carried out to reliably determine the causes of death. He also indicated the skills of rigor.

“Until the autopsy report is not confirmed that it was a homicide,” said the sources of the investigation consulted.

According to the Télam news agency, Osvaldo, Longhi’s brother who met with police officers after the body was found, said that his brother, in addition to being president of the Vilo club, rented a field in the town of Tomas Jofre, called “Los Friends ”, and that yesterday he had planned to go buy two steers in the Navarro area, for which he had 180 thousand pesos. Hence the transcendence of the discovery of money in the victim’s truck, but that data has not yet been confirmed by the sources of the investigation.

Meanwhile, from the Vilo club, where Longhi was the president, they reported on their social networks: “On Friday the 14th, the club will open its doors to say goodbye to our beloved president Marcelo. We invite those who want to come from 18 to 23 ″. And they added that the farewell on Saturday will be from 6 to 8.

The victim was the founder of rugby at the Vilo club, according to what those most knowledgeable about the history of that institution commented. They even claim that he played the first game in the early 1980s.

But not only did Longhi live on sports. He also worked in the municipality of Vicente López and had a marked radical extraction, with contacts with various leaders in the area, such as the mayor Jorge Macri on leave.
