Antecedent and unknown
Prior to the accident that cost Padilla his life, another motorcyclist joined the tragic weekend but, in this case, the mystery continues and they have not yet found the person responsible for the tragic incident.
As this morning has been reporting, Claudio Luis Schlender (18) was found dead on Saturday morning at the entrance to El Alcázar on the side of Provincial Route 11, 20 kilometers from where his motorcycle was found, on the national route. 12 at the height of Garuhapé.
At first, the Garuhapé police station received notice that the driver of a Peugeot 308 collided with a motorcycle that was apparently in the middle of the asphalt strip on the national artery.
The investigations began in order to find the owner of the motorcycle of whom there were no traces. A few hours later, residents of El Alcázar denounced the discovery of a lifeless body lying on the side of the provincial artery.
The identity of the young man was verified who, according to the autopsy report, died of serious polytrauma and with signs of drag. Until the closing of this edition, the investigation continued in order to clarify the sinister road that cost Schlender his life.
A hypothesis taken into account by the investigations refers to the participation of a truck that moved the body and discarded it where it was finally found. Another alternative surrounds the possibility that the young man has missed or skidded and then dragged by a large vehicle.
A source with access to the file assured that it is possible that the body had been intentionally discarded since, in both cases, it is unlikely that the person did not realize that, on the 20-kilometre journey, he was dragging a body or carrying it. It was on the hood, as testified by a man who said he saw a truck drive by carrying a bundle on the front of the car that same morning.

On the other hand, Aranda and Daniel Márquez, bricklayer and public employee respectively, were identified in the early hours of yesterday after being transferred as NN after being extracted from a car that lost its way and fell into the Chirimay stream, in Apóstoles, on Sunday by the afternoon.
The victims were traveling in a hearse from which the driver, identified as Gustavo C. (40), managed to get out alive and stated that two companions were trapped inside.
The survivor, an employee of the funeral company, remains in custody because it was determined that he was in an advanced state of intoxication; the breathalyzer test yielded a positive result of 1.92 gl.
According to police sources, the driver of the Toyota Fielder was driving in the Apóstoles-Colonia Liebig direction until, for reasons that are the subject of investigation, he lost control of the vehicle, collided with the guardrail and then plunged into the Chimiray stream.
