Analía Maldonado (40), the victim of the femicide in Los Toldos, suffered blows to the head, but died strangled and was burned postmortem, according to the preliminary results of the autopsy.

"At the cervical level, the finding of hematic infiltration in the neck muscles and at the retropharyngeal level make it possible to assume that they have been of a sufficient entity to cause death after a mechanism due to external cervical compression," says a statement from the Junín Attorney General's Office on injuries that are indicative of

strangulation as a cause of death.

Samuel Llanos, detained in a hotel in Luján, accused of the femicide of his partner.

Due to the fact, this Tuesday her boyfriend was arrested, identified as Samuel Llanos (40), who this Wednesday will be investigated in the Junín Prosecutor's Office.

Less than a year ago Analía had started a relationship with Samuel.

Both were well known in that city of 13,000 inhabitants near Junín.

Llanos is a

bodybuilder, has a gym and had worked as a traffic inspector

in the Municipality of General Viamonte, but he was fired after several complaints were made against him for gender violence, theft, sexual abuse and injuries.

His file accumulated files in different prosecutors of the Junín Judicial Department and in the Justice of the Peace, but they never advanced or convicted him of the crimes.

The violence of Llanos was known and worried

Analía's friends who during 2020 trained in the gym with her partner.

"Everything was very fast," they acknowledged.

Samuel Llanos's car (40).

Witnesses saw him leave Los Toldos in his car.

The woman's body appeared charred, on a country road.

A few months after the relationship began, Llanos was already living with Analía and her barely 7-year-old son.

"She lost a lot of weight, trained a lot and said: 'I want to be beautiful for him," some of her clients recall.

None suspected that she could be in a violent bond until a few months ago when they began to see her "worried" and "anguished" by the instability of Llanos.

She did not denounce him and no court appearances were recorded.

It is not clear what happened this weekend, but the neighbors of the house they shared, in Mariano Moreno 757, in Los Toldos, declared that they heard

screams during the night of Saturday and until the early hours of Sunday.

When the woman stopped answering the phone and no one could communicate with her, her father Juan Carlos Maldonado (66) made the complaint.

Due to the background of Analía's partner, who was also missing, the search was activated immediately.

Los Toldos security cameras captured them, together, for the last time on Saturday at 9:00 pm. The couple's neighbors acknowledged hearing "fights" until 4:00 am.

Analía Maldonado had met Samuel Llanos a year ago.

Llanos used the couple's car to escape, a white Nissan Tiida, ITA 913 patent. On Tuesday afternoon, he was arrested at a hotel in Luján.

The cameras took him leaving Los Toldos around 10, on the way to 9 de Julio, a neighboring town, and it was the dogs of the firefighters in the area who followed the traces to the point where, this Tuesday morning , they found a body.

Investigators confirmed that it was Analía because they found her cell phone with the screen exploded and items from her home.

According to the main hypothesis, Llanos had beaten Analía in the house they shared.

It was all mixed up and there were traces of violence in all areas of the property, except

in the grill area "where everything was clean and tidy."

Therefore, they presume that the bodybuilder tried to hide the body in that place and took a rural road to the town of San Emilio, 7 kilometers from provincial route 65, towards San Emilio.

The remains were hidden between the grasslands and the victim's cell phone, about 200 meters away.

In addition, in a nearby bag there were shovels, irons and items that they recognized as belonging to the victim.


In the last ten years in Argentina there is an average of one femicide every 30 hours.

According to statistics from the Office of Domestic Violence of the Supreme Court, in 2018 alone there were 278. Most murders occur in the homes of the victims and are committed by partners or exes.
