Nicolas Gil Pereg killed his mother Pyrhia Saroussy with blows and his aunt Lily Pereg with bullets. This was the result of a fingerprint test carried out on the bodies of the Israeli sisters killed in Mendoza, who were buried at a construction site inside the vast estate where the 37-year-old man was living since Saturday in a prison in the provincial capital. .
Pereg (54) died after receiving three bullet impacts in your body. One entered the chest and pierced the lung and heart, causing his death immediately. The killer used a 38-caliber revolver, which was found in one of the first raids on the property located on Roca street in Guaymallén, near a cemetery.

Saroussy's body (63) has lesions on different parts of the body, such as the hip and upper limbs, as well as traction signs. "This indicates there was a fight, defense signals," the researchers said.
After assassinating them, the engineer crossed the irons in the corpses of the women. "Being post mortem, can not be considered as an aggravating circumstance of the crime, obviously these situations will be valued later to merit future punishments, procedural risks," explained prosecutor Claudia Ríos, who carried out the investigation and charged Gil Pereg with "homicide aggravated by the bond in real contest " (in the case of his mother) and "simple homicide"(for his aunt).
In addition to denouncing the disappearance, Gil Pereg was always in the sights of the researchers, who called him "an intelligent person with a very high IQ"Solitary, hermit and moody, this electronic engineer and ex-soldier of the Israeli army lived in conditions of destitution.
In his home he had no furniture, food or basic services. On the contrary, there were weapons, money (equivalent to about 3 million pesos in dollars and euros) and animals in bad conditions or dead.

On Saturday, January 12, the women arrived at this address with Gil Pereg. Different security cameras confirmed this fact, but none recorded his exit from the property, as the accused stated.
The assassin's plan began to collapse on Friday 18 when, in an attack, troops discovered bloodstains in a cement bag and a defendant's shirt. DNA studies proved that they belonged to the victims. Exactly a week later, the man was arrested, although the bodies have not yet been found.
Finally, last Saturday a dog trained in the search for corpses marked a point of possession and he was not wrong: There were the corpses of women who were brutally murdered.
Saroussy was an employee of an Israeli collection agency and Pereg was a professor of microbiology at the University of New England in Australia. His classmates claimed that his sister insisted that he accompany her to Mendoza to visit Gil Pereg. They arrived on Friday, January 11, and the next day, nothing was heard.
