The first police inquiries after the disappearance almost a week ago in Badajoz (151,000 inhabitants) of the 21-year-old student, Pablo Sierra Moreno, suggested that “he could have fallen into the river” Guadiana that runs through the Extremaduran city. However, after combing the river area for several days where an off-duty civil guard found his mobile phone on the same morning of Friday, December 3, when he heard it ringing, the researchers have turned around and are working on another hypothesis: ” He could have suffered an assault ”.
Pablo loses track at the exit of an area of bars and clubs in the city center, specifically on Zurbarán street. There he says goodbye to one of his friends at around 2:00 am on Friday, ready – according to his statement – to take a taxi that will take him to the Rucab university residence, far from the center. He lived there, as did his twin brother, a medical student, who raised the alarm on Friday morning when he realized that he had not returned despite the fact that they planned to return to his town, Zorita, in Cáceres. to spend a few days with his family.
The insistent calls from his brothers to his mobile phone, still operational, alerted the agent who was walking with his dog early in the morning in the area called Las Crispitas, about three kilometers from where the last friend who saw him alive said goodbye to him. It is a vacant place, next to the river, and in the opposite direction to that of the residence. “He could have gotten lost, if he was walking,” the agents initially thought. However, a more detailed analysis of his mobile phone and the interrogations of the friends with whom he went out that night, have yielded new data that have opened new lines of investigation.
According to these testimonies, Pablo Sierra could have had a scuffle with another boy that night, although apparently it would have been solved at the same moment. And, on the other hand, other sources point out cautiously that “traces of blood could have been detected on his phone that could point to some violent act, although they have yet to determine who these biological remains correspond to.” Both things have led investigators to consider the hypothesis that his disappearance is neither voluntary, as the family insisted – “Pablo is a boy 10,” his aunt, Susana Moreno, highlighted these days – neither accidental, but violent.
Pablo is 1.75 centimeters tall, has an athletic build, has dark hair with curly bangs and brown eyes. At the time of his disappearance he was wearing a blue shirt, jeans, a blue jacket and white sneakers. With these data, the agents continue to view the recordings of dozens of cameras scattered around the city, in order to see what was the path that the young man followed that morning, if he was alone or accompanied and why his phone ended more than three kilometers away. from where he was last seen and in the opposite direction to his destination.
