SANTIAGO.- The prefect of the Bureau of Police Investigations (PDI) for the O'Higgins region, Jaime Almuna, has stated that all evidence indicates that 38 year-old Mario Rodolfo Lecaros, who was the main suspect in the robbery and slaying of businessman Mauricio Saba, acted alone. The suspect was found dead last night. The official also stated however that authorities have not been able to rule out the possibility of third party involvement in the murder.

"For now, all evidence seems to indicate that he acted alone, but that doesn't mean that we are not going to continue to investigate some of the details that remain pending (…).  For now, there is no evidence of third-party involvement", Alumna told Radio Cooperativa.

Lecaros left behind several hand-written notes that could contain evidence regarding the murder of Saba.

"The letters are being investigated and they may include information concerning the woman that was with him and other matters related to Saba's murder. According to investigations, all evidence indicates that the letters were written by him", stated the prefect.

The woman who was with Lecaros was questioned and set free. Nevertheless, the police official has not ruled out the possibility of a second interrogation.
