The Mysterious Death of Crypto Millionaire Fernando Pérez Algaba

The remains of Fernando Pérez Algaba, a crypto millionaire and luxury car rental owner, were found dismembered in a suitcase during his stay in Argentina. Authorities suspect that professionals were responsible for the amputation, as an autopsy revealed he was shot before his body was cut into pieces.

Investigation Launched into the Death of Another Crypto Millionaire

Argentinian police are investigating the mysterious death of Fernando Pérez Algaba, whose body parts were discovered in a suitcase in Ingeniero Budge, Buenos Aires. Algaba, a millionaire influencer, was reported missing on July 19 after failing to return apartment keys or answer his phone.

Children found Algaba’s dismembered remains and alerted their parents, who then contacted the Buenos Aires police. Authorities found Algaba’s legs and forearm in the suitcase, another arm in a stream, and later discovered the victim’s head and torso on July 26.

While the motive behind Algaba’s murder remains unknown, police suspect the amputation was carried out by an expert due to the clean cuts. An autopsy also revealed that Algaba was shot three times before being dismembered.

Murder Possibly Linked to Large Debt

Algaba’s company, “Motors Lettuce SRL,” encountered financial troubles, leading to significant debts with the Argentinian tax agency. He also faced issues with the Barra Bravas gang, who demanded a $40,000 loan from him. Algaba had warned others that something might happen to him. He admitted to losing a significant amount of money in cryptocurrency investments.

Investigations into the murder are ongoing, and a suspect has been arrested. Algaba’s death adds to a string of crypto-related deaths in 2022, including Tiantian Kullander, co-founder of Amber Group, who passed away in his sleep, and Vyacheslav Taran, a billionaire crypto businessman who died in a helicopter crash. Nikolai Mushegian, a MakerDAO developer, also allegedly drowned in Puerto Rico.
