(Washington, DC) – Last night, Argentina’s TV show “Periodismo Para Todos” hosted by Jorge Lanata, aired an exclusive interview with Dr. Cyril Wecht, an internationally recognized forensic pathologist based in Pittsburgh, PA. Dr. Wecht is a former president of both the American Academy of Forensic Science and the American College of Legal Medicine, and currently heads the board of trustees of the American Board of Legal Medicine.
Dr. Wecht, who in the past has been involved in the analysis of the death of public personalities such as John F. Kennedy, and Elvis Presley among others, had access to a loaded amount of material related to the death of Argentina’s prosecutor Alberto Nisman. Among the reviewed material, were the videos and photos of the autopsy, the videos and photos of the crime scene, the forensic medical report, the cartridges expert examination, the apartment’s inspection and gun’s description, the gun and discharged shell casing expert examination, the analysis of the blood stain in the bathroom, the DNA tests, and more.
He concluded the interview assuring that based on his professional experience, the review of all the material, and the results of the autopsy. the manner of Nisman’s death was most likely homicide. He also said he would be surprised if the Prosecutor in charge of the death ended up saying that Nisman was murdered, since “governments are always uncomfortable of dealing with political crimes, specially when the tentacles of the crime reach back into the government”.
The Center for Investigative Journalism in the Americas provided strategic assistance to the team of “Periodismo Para Todos” during the investigation.
