The cryptocurrency world is reeling this week after the gruesome murder of social media influencer and bitcoin billionaire Fernando Pérez Algaba. Algaba, who lived a lavish lifestyle as a popular Instagrammer and YouTuber, travelled to his native Argentina about a week ago and mysteriously disappeared on July 19th. This week, the case took a dark turn when Algaba’s dismembered remains were shockingly discovered near a drainage ditch in the Buenos Aires metro area.

Human Remains Found in Suitcase Near Drainage Ditch

On Wednesday, local children playing outside found a red suitcase containing severed human body parts near a drainage ditch. The children alerted their parents, who called the police. Authorities arrived on the scene and determined the dismembered remains belonged to the missing man, Algaba.

Over the next two days, police recovered two arms, two legs, a torso, and a head belonging to Algaba from both the suitcase and areas around the drainage ditch. The body parts were positively identified using fingerprints and Algaba’s distinctive tattoos.
