The latest information on the whereabouts of the body of Federico García Lorca and who were buried with him pointed to the Fuente Grande, an area of García Lorca Park in Alfacar (Granada), as the place where his remains could be. So much so that in September the Junta de Andalucía launched the necessary administrative procedure to excavate the area in search of master Dióscoro Galindo and the two banderilleros Francisco Baladí and Joaquín Arcollas, all of them anarchists shot at the same time as the poet. Federico, officially, is not wanted because the family has not requested it. The Ministry of Justice has just closed that line of investigation by making public the results of a report that indicates that there are no human remains at a depth of two and a half meters deep in the area of the Fuente Grande.
The General Directorate for the Historical Memory of the Ministry of Justice and the own Ministry of the Presidency of the Junta de Andalucía commissioned the Andalusian Institute of Geophysics last December an analysis of the terrain where it was thought could be the human remains. After several unsuccessful searches elsewhere, some information published months ago brought attention to this place when it was disclosed that during the construction of the park the workers had moved human bodies from another site to that source.
A technical committee analyzed the data received by the administration and gave credibility to the evidence provided. Now, a team of four experts of the Area of Applied Geophysics of the Andalusian Institute of Geophysics of the University of Granada has analyzed the terrain with a radar and has shown that in the area there are no "anomalies that allow suspecting the presence of human remains in the subsoil ", according to the Ministry of Justice. That rules out the search that was underway.
According to the ministry statement, the analysis of radargrams (images of the subsoil obtained by the emission of pulses of electromagnetic energy in the radio frequency band) has allowed "to obtain solvent information on the different layers of the terrain: a first surface, corresponding the cobbled granadino, about 10 to 15 centimeters deep; a second layer consisting of a foundation with an iron slab also about 10 to 15 centimeters thick, and, below the previous ones, a regularization layer of irregular thickness under which the natural terrain is located ". The technology used by the team of experts as transmitter-receiver equipment has been a SIR 3000 single-channel subsoil radar with a 400 megahertz antenna.
