That is why ten years later, 15 penalties (Including doctors, prison authorities and the regional head of the Federal penitentiary Service) are on the bank of the defendants of the Courts & # 39; Neuquén.
The event & # 39; Pelozo Iturri has a black background: suspicion, confirmed by experts in the trial, a & # 39; eagerness worthy time of the Inquisition, and dark chain & # 39; omissions, adulteration & # 39; autopsy, tightening and even mysterious early death of the key witness process, The only prisoner he saw as the master of its pavilion was defeated death.

F & # 39; that day & # 39; April, Pelozo Iturri was received by prison officers with a classic "welcome", a package & # 39; torture & # 39; prison administered by the authorities consists of blows, kicks and – 'Pump & # 39; water', Endless pipe Ice water on the body naked prisoner on patagonu weather.
The prisoner was marked: among its crimes for which he has fulfilled the penalty payment was excellent murder & # 39; police. The penitenzjarjali agents waited 12 years. For that homicide and because akkużatlu, without evidence, that participated in & # 39; deaths in 1996, which prevented them hostage there, in prison & # 39; Neuquén, in their own territory.

He was wounded, not only because of the eagerness he had received, but because the prisoner has already carried the pain & # 39; the sudden the Ezeiza penitenzi have as adverse.

The prisoners in cells adjacent hear sounds: beating against body, the penalties against the floor and wall shields, sticks, men carrying the body & # 39; another, shouts and voice of prisoner who asked: "M & # 39; have hit me anymore".

But one of the detainees in mailboxes said that minutes before their death spoke in & # 39; stop (hour to wash) and Pelozo Iturri said that prison in & # 39; wissah Neuquen in the " him ". were going · "Payment" taking & # 39; of & # 39 hostages; 1996.
It was 11 am when Iturri received the visit of the guard Carlos Vergara, along with & # 39; agents & # 39; John search, Vergara and Muñiz. All of them defended themselves at trial arguing outbreak of psychosis, but were contradiction by witnesses & # 39; detainees and former detainees now that, in spite of – tightening suffered (found in the case record) said scenes have more work & # 39; share with torture and revenge than with & # 39; ways to help people.
