Argie Man High On Drugs Murders Pal Before Chopping Him Into Pieces And Storing Them In Fridge

A man in Argentina has been arrested for killing his friend while high on drugs before chopping him into pieces and storing them in his fridge in bin bags.

The incident took place in the town of El Talar, which is located in the district of Tigre in the Argentine province of Buenos Aires, when the suspect, who has been named as 34-year-old Gustavo Arbelo, allegedly murdered his friend, Abel Leonardo Barrios, 31.

The alarm was raised on Saturday 9th October when the victim’s younger sister Noelia, age not reported, raised the alarm after her brother disappeared and the police began investigating, according to local media outlet Infobae.

The victim was reportedly last seen alive leaving his home in the town of Ricardo Rojas in Tigre District in his Chevrolet Corsa.

Police began investigating and quickly determined that the victim’s last known location was the home of the 34-year-old suspect.

The suspect was asked to give testimony at a local police station and when he arrived, reportedly in a state of shock, he allegedly confessed to murdering his friend after a heated argument and after consuming drugs.

He reportedly confessed that he killed his friend with a blow to the head before cutting him up with a saw and storing his body parts in a fridge.

He was immediately detained under suspicion of murder, with the police then going to his home where they indeed found the human remains.

His testimony will be invalid in court because it counts as self-incrimination, local media outlet Cronica reported. Police have sent the human remains to a morgue for them to be analysed forensically.
