Missing Millionaire Cryptocurrency Influencer Found Dismembered in Argentina

Police in Argentina have launched a murder investigation after the gruesome discovery of the dismembered remains of millionaire Fernando Pérez Algaba, a popular crypto influencer.

According to the Spanish Newspaper El País, the body parts were found by a group of children playing near a stream in the town of Ingeniero Budge, Buenos Aires Province, over the weekend. Authorities have now recovered all of the victim’s body parts, including the head and torso, leading to a belief that a professional was involved in the crime.

The incident was brought to attention when the children stumbled upon a red suitcase containing body parts. They immediately alerted their parents, who promptly reported the finding to the Buenos Aires police. Upon inspection of the package, law enforcement authorities discovered the victim’s legs and forearm. Additionally, they found another whole arm submerged in the nearby stream. In a recent development, the missing head and torso were also located.

Victim Identified and Cause of Death Determined

Through fingerprint analysis and distinctive tattoos on the body parts, the deceased has been identified as Fernando Pérez Algaba, a 41-year-old entrepreneur. Surprisingly, an autopsy revealed that Algaba had been shot three times prior to his dismemberment. These findings point to a premeditated act of violence.

Algaba, who amassed his wealth through luxury vehicle rentals and cryptocurrency trading, was known for promoting his ventures to his 900,000 Instagram followers. Originally from Barcelona, Spain, he had been staying in Argentina for approximately one week before his disappearance.

Witnesses claimed that he had rented an apartment in Buenos Aires, slated to return the keys on July 19. However, Algaba failed to fulfill this commitment and was unresponsive to communication attempts.

Algaba’s brother, Rodolfo Pérez Algaba, insists that Fernando was “not a scammer” as many had allegedly claimed, according to local media reports.

Rodolfo expressed uncertainty about Fernando’s involvement with the criminal ring but emphasized that his late brother was simply a car salesman who did not succeed in Bitcoin investment. He also revealed that when they were younger, their father’s inheritance served as Fernando’s initial capital for starting his business.

Rodolfo shed light on Fernando’s mental health struggles, stating that he had been undergoing psychiatric treatment for an anxiety disorder. Despite his grief, Rodolfo expressed hope that authorities will apprehend his brother’s killer, stating, “I’m not going to sit still, I’m not going to do justice with my own hands, but I hope that justice will be done.”

Arrest Made and Motive Speculated

Authorities have apprehended one suspect in connection with Algaba’s murder. While the motive behind the crime remains cloudy, investigators suspect that the millionaire influencer may have been targeted due to substantial debts he had accrued.

Algaba’s troubled financial situation had been exacerbated by “irrecoverable” tax debts and bounced checks from his company, “Motors Lettuce SRL.” A note found on his phone also indicated significant losses in cryptocurrency investments.

Complicated Past and Family Perspective

Apart from financial troubles, Algaba had encountered issues with a violent gang tied to Argentina’s soccer scene. He had apparently borrowed $40,000 from the group, which left him further entangled in a web of potential threats and danger.


Algaba’s brother, Rodolfo Pérez Algaba, maintains that his deceased sibling was not involved in any fraudulent activities, as some had alleged. Furthermore, Rodolfo revealed that Algaba had been undergoing psychiatric treatment for an anxiety disorder and hopes that justice can be served in this tragic case.

In conclusion, the discovery of the dismembered remains of millionaire crypto influencer Fernando Pérez Algaba has shocked Argentina. As investigators delve further into the case, they aim to uncover the motive behind his murder and bring the responsible party to justice. The tragic end to Algaba’s life has left his brother devastated, seeking closure and resolution in this heinous crime.
