Robledo Puch: the biggest serial killer in the country
His full name is Carlos Eduardo Robledo Puch, and, sentenced to life imprisonment at only 20 years, is considered the most famousserial killer in the country. While some of his crimes are supposed to go unpunished for lack of evidence, those that could be legally proven (and convicted for them) are no more and no less than ten qualified homicides, one simple homicide, one attempted homicide, seventeen robberies, one rapes, one attempted rapes, one attempted rapes, one dishonest abuse, two abductions and two shoplifting. And all that, I insist, under 20 years of age. Mummy.
Robledo Puch and his journey through death
It was the ’70s. On March 15, 1971, Robledo Puch and Jorge Ibáñez (their accomplice in most of the crimes, who enjoys less fame than the “Angel of Death” because he died in a rather strange event), entered a La Lucila bowling alley called Enamour. They took the fundraiser and, when they fled (Robledo continues to say today that he doesn’t know why he did it), fired at the serene and the owner of the place while they slept.
Less than two months later, they broke into a car spare parts store in Vicente López. Looking for money and valuables, they found a couple with their newborn child in a room. Robledo Puch murdered the man and wounded the woman. Injured and everything, Ibáñez tried to violate her and couldn’t because Robledo prevented her from doing so. Do you think he had a good side? Do not be so sure: before fleeing with a small fortune, he shot at the crib where the baby was crying. Luckily he didn’t have such a good shot: he missed the shot and the boy survived.
On May 24, another serene was murdered, this time in a supermarket in Olivos. On 12 June, two women who were raped by Ibáñez and Robledo Puch executed on the side of a road. On August 5, Ibáñez died in a car accident. Robledo, who was driving, ran away unharmed. To this day it is suspected that he was actually one more victim of the “Angel”. It seems that this event impacted him and slowed his criminal career.
The story goes on
But I don’t. In November of the same year he already had a new accomplice: Héctor Somoza. They stormed a supermarket in Boulogne and fired at the serene (what would it have against the serene?) with a gun they had stolen from an armory and two days later they stole a car and money from a dealership, killing, if not, the serene. A week later, another dealership. But this fact was different and somehow broke what was happening: in addition to killing the serene, Robledo ended Somoza’s life and, to prevent the police from recognizing him, burned his face with a blowtorch. Then (or earlier, go to know), with the same blowtorch opened the safe, grabbed the silver and left.
On 4 February 1972, he was arrested. How did they find his identity? The strangest way: he took the trouble of burning Somoza’s face, but he forgot his document in the body’s pocket. He was very recently 20 years old.
Hipólito Azema nació en Buenos Aires, en los comienzos de la década del 80. No se sabe desde cuándo, porque esas cosas son difíciles de determinar, le gusta contar historias, pero más le gusta que se las cuenten: quizás por eso transitó los inefables pasillos de la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras de la Universidad de Buenos Aires. Una vez escuchó que donde existe una necesidad nace un derecho y se lo creyó.
