The report made by Seprona (the Nature Protection Service of the Civil Guard) in relation to the investigation about how the fall of Julen to the well of seventy meters of Totalán took place It is already in the hands of the Junta de Andalucía, the City Council of Totalán and at the table of the owner of the 9th Court of Malaga that instructs the case. A report made by specialists of vital importance to clarify how the child could fall through a hole only 25 centimeters in diameter, as well as to determine how this illegal well was made and its subsequent sealing. The person in charge of the company that carried out the fatal prospecting, Antonio Sánchez, affirms, according to the investigation, that he put two large stones in the well and that Julen could not have displaced them.
On the other hand, the owner of the farm where the family was located on the day of the accident and where they were supposedly going to build an illegal house, denies having modified the land. The dialectical war between both is patent in the report and the Civil Guard has not been able to determine who says the truth since they continue passing the responsibility from one to another. Further, to the absence of exact dates of the realization of the prospection, as well as the nonexistence of photographs that indicate how the well was when it was sealed -Which still can not be closed with a simple stone, is more after the rescue of Julen was sealed with a steel plate of 600 kg- indicates that it will be the judge who must now determine if this fact is only in an administrative fault against those responsible or, if it is established that there was reckless negligence resulting in death and, therefore, a responsibility before the courts.
Another route opened after the discovery of the body of Julen is the analysis of the samples taken in the well once the child was removed from the site. These signs were collected by the civil guards of the mountain body (Greim) and sources consulted by this newspaper confirm that they are already in the criminalistics laboratory of the Civil Guard of Madrid where they are being analyzed thoroughly. The samples are so much of the clumps of sand that the little one had under his feet (he was found upright with his arms held high) as well as the mass of earth on his head. The famous stopper that remains one of the key aspects. Now it is necessary to determine its composition to check whether it corresponds to the type of sand of the place or if it is from another source, such as debris from a work such as the one that was being started on the family farm of the cousins of the father of Julen. In this sense, in the coming days, the judge from Malaga in charge of the case could ask again to take samples of the entire well and in this case it would be necessary to "open it" completely, indicate sources of the investigation, which would imply returning to Totalán, to ground zero.
In addition to the investigation of the construction of the well and the analysis of the terrain samples, there is a third line of work that is the autopsy of the body of the little Julen that will undoubtedly put black on white on how death occurred. As confirmed yesterday to THE REASON, in the preliminary report that was made on Saturday, it is stated that the lungs present high doses of sand, which would imply that the child would have breathed for an indeterminate time after the fall. "For the sand to reach the alveoli, it must have been a deep breath, that is to say, it has arrived alive to the bottom of the well and for a later time. In a state of semi-consciousness, the level of respiration is lower and oxygen intake is minimal, so if it is stipulated that there are remains of sand in the alveoli, it would also imply that the subject was conscious, "says Patricia Alcaraz, a forensic doctor. According to the expert, the preliminary autopsy yields basic data that should later be studied with complementary tests. «If there was a free fall of more than 70 meters, which is like falling from a height of 30 floors, there is clear evidence in the autopsy as broken legs and feet. On the other hand, to determine the exact moment of his death, the decomposition of the corpse has been analyzed taking into account environmental factors, the swelling or saponification of the body and its putrefaction. Although no doubt I am still drawn to the traumatic brain injury indicated by the report since it is strange that in the fall a child can drag such amount of sand or stones for that impact to cause his death, "says Alcaraz.
