Security cameras captured the couple’s entry and exit from the building.
However, on Saturday, January 21 at 10:00 p.m., the last picture of Valentina Trespalacios alive has not been released. The young woman walks out onto the eighth-floor porch, and cameras capture her waiting for John to go to the building’s reception desk to pick up an order.
John Poulos leaves the apartment, Valentina wearing only a brace, and when the woman’s killer calls the elevator, he gives her some advice. What is observed is that Poulos leaves through an address, while Valentina re-enters the apartment and is murdered, wrapped in a suitcase.
A few hours later, at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, January 22, Poulos leaves the apartment and begins an act that draws the attention of investigators, who then attempt to hide evidence from the authorities.
After carrying the same items that Valentina brought into the apartment from her residence in the south of Bogotá, Poulos removed them with a routine that forced him to go to the parking lot three times; He then loaded them into the vehicle to hide them in a garbage container.
With a market cart, suitcase and inside, Valentina’s body. As the suitcase was too small to fully contain the victim, the female killer left Valentina’s head out and covered her with a gray blanket to avoid the gruesome scene, which was found next to the body and in the trash.
Cameras in the building recorded Poulos walking from the door of Apartment 802 to the parking lot and attempting to put the suitcase with the body in the trunk of the car.
Then, he went out and traveled more than eight kilometers, in which he found a place to dispose of Valentina.
The follow-up done by the researchers was on film. From the time he left the building on 102nd Street to the time he picked up a container in the town of Fontibon, security cameras captured the alleged slaying in his attempt to hide the evidence.
Poulos stopped, checked to see if it was empty, turned around, got out and picked up the suitcase, then a black box.
Later, Valentina’s boyfriend drove to 26th Street, delivered the vehicle to the same company she had rented it from, and decided to walk.
It was at that point that he decided to throw the victim’s cell phone in the trash to hide or distract the authorities. The security guy got the cell phone.
Cameras at the El Dorado airport capture Poulos as he arrives at the gate around 6:00 p.m., passes through the terminal without any problems, submits his documents, and leaves the country for Panama. That’s the scapegoat for femicide.
