The revelation of a key witness in the case of Jazmín, the 17-year-old girl who died run over in Laferrere


The victim was identified as Jazmín Fernández, 17 years old.

Saturday night, Jasmine Fernandez (17) had attended her sister-in-law’s birthday party with her boyfriend and a group of friends in the center of Laferrere, La Matanza district. They danced all night and shared fun moments with her, without imagining that it would be the last day of her life. Present at the party was Jaqueline, Jazmín’s sister-in-law.

“We were a group of 9 people, almost all of us are relatives”Jaqueline told infobae.

It was 7:08 when Jazmín was walking with the others along Luro street, almost Valentín Gómez, in the direction of her other brother-in-law’s car that was parked meters from the place where the accident occurred.

A motorist stopped the group on the street and asked them if they had anything to invite him to drink. They agreed and when they saw that the young man maintained a suspicious attitude, they decided to continue on. That same young man, Julio César Peralta, 24, a native of the area, was the one who would run over Jazmín moments later and then try to flee.

What Jaqueline reveals next could be key to the file:

“The driver looked at us and laughed. He started the engine, backed up, made a U-turn, went up the sidewalk and plowed into us.”, recounted Jaqueline, who still has not come out of her astonishment at the sinister actions of the motorist.

If it’s like Jaqueline says it, then, the driver could be charged with the crime of homicide.

Despite being injured, Carlos -the victim’s boyfriend- got up as best he could and went to help his partner. “Jazmín was all bloody and asked to be turned on her side because she was in great pain,” Jaqueline said.

While some of the boys in the group ran to the driver to prevent him from fleeing, others were screaming for an ambulance to transport the injured. “My older brother, who took us to the birthday in the car, had been run over by the WV Fox and couldn’t move. He told us that he did not feel his legs. It was a crazy moment.”he detailed.
