A Spanish coroner demolishes the documentary on Mario Biondo: omission of reports and manipulation in favor of Sánchez Silva

Is called Luis Duqueis a highly reputable forensic criminalist in Spain and has placed himself in the line of fire in the midst of the controversy over the confusing documentary on the death of Mario Biondohusband of Raquel Sanchez Silva. Her theory adds to that of those who point out that the Netflix material is an attempt to clear the presenter’s name, the same one that the Italian family put in the trigger when the Spanish police closed the case alleging suicide.

Duque has granted an extensive interview this Tuesday on the YouTube channel ‘Interviews with Axel’ and in it he addresses different points collected in the aforementioned documentary. For example, that Mario Biondo was not a regular user of cocaine, as stated: “No, absolutely. The substance goes into the blood and then into the urine. In criminalistics, hair analysis is vital, because it gives us the time to consumption as well. The volume in Mario’s case was negligible, according to reports.”

Duque also recalls the errors that Dr. Paolo Procaccianti made in his autopsy report (and for which he was prosecuted in Italy) and affirms emphatically: “I am not a brainless person who goes around saying things. I have shown the photographs of the body from Mario Biondo to many colleagues and they have no doubt: the continuous groove on the back of Mario Biondo’s neck is a strangulation groove.It is a compressive groove where the subcutaneous fat has been compressed as a result of the force exerted It has exerted on the skin. It is a hand hanging and they intertwine the cable, because it has three marks on one side. The producer, like many other people, has those photographs, but they have not broadcast them”.

The expert insists: “These marks are incompatible with pashmina due to the very nature of the pashmina fabric. One must keep in mind, and this would be another indication, that the neck compression mark is below the hyoid bone when in the hanged, are suspended or touching the ground and whatever the tool used (cable, pashmina…), it is above the hyoid bone. In the case of Mario it was below or just in the compression of the walnut. This is incompatible with hanging. Here no one lifted her hair to observe the continuous furrow on the back of her neck, something key in the Italian investigation.”

Along the same lines, the former Mosso d’Esquadra and criminologist Oscar Tarruellawho has always defended the theory of the murder of Mario Biondo, has published some images in which he explains how the mark that Biondo had on his neck was produced, the same one that the Spanish police attributed to a pashmina.

In the same thread, Tarruella denies that there was life insurance that the Biondo family could collectsomething that has been published, and also that the images from the security cameras that would show that Mario Biondo went to an ATM to withdraw money were never requested: “They were never requested. Neither were those of the journey mentioned in the docuseries.”

Nor does it include the documentary, in which the former representative of Raquel Sánchez Silva, the declaration of the neighbor of the property in which Mario Biondo died, who stated in court that he heard moans of a sexual nature around midnight. Information that would refute another of the police theories and defended in The last hours of Mario Biondo: that no one visited the Italian cameraman at his home that night.
