British astronomer disappeared in Chile: a macabre theory emerges after revealing a possible discussion with a student

Total mystery remains the case of Thomas Richard Marsh, an English scientist who has been missing since September 16, when he was working at the La Silla Observatory, located in La Higuera, in the Coquimbo Region.

The expert from the University of Warwick, professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics, was in Chile making observations.

As a result of his disappearance, Carabineros and the Investigative Police (PDI) began an intense search. So far, as reported by ESO in Chile, dozens of people have been deployed in the area looking for the astronomer.

“Despite an extensive and thorough search by Police and PDI, with the support of ESO staff and British Police, Marsh has unfortunately still not been found. ESO’s La Silla Observatory is located in a mountainous area in the northern part of the Coquimbo region,” the organization wrote in a statement.

For his part, Prefect Carlos Albornoz, head of the Elqui Provincial Prefecture of the PDI, clarified that “this is an investigation being carried out by the La Serena Homicide Brigade with the support of all the operational units of the Prefecture. And proceedings are being carried out in coordination with the La Serena Prosecutor’s Office.”

discussion with student

According to the daily The day, Thomas Richard Marsh traveled to the country with a doctoral student. He is about a man with whom he would have had an argument.

According to the regional prosecutor, Adrián Vega, both arrived in Chile on September 14, two days before the disappearance.

Sources of the case indicated to the aforementioned media that the student was interviewed by Carabineros, the Investigative Police and the Prosecutor’s Office. That yes, the persecutor Vega maintained that “there is no possibility of rooting a person and preventing him from leaving the country if he is not formalized. The student has not been formalized.

In the same way, he specified that “we do not rule out any possibility and the possible theories remain open.”

possible hypothesis

Aware of the details of this case, the former PDI José Miguel Vallejo, better known as Inspector Vallejo, assured that it is “impossible to retain in the country, at the moment, the student who accompanied the astronomer.”

Of course, he maintained that “it would be unthinkable not to have examined his shoes or his clothes, in search of ‘soil particles’ (mud, earth, pollen), in the event of a corpse burial. One of several hypotheses.
