The departmental prosecutor of La Paz, William Alave, reported that the Institute of Forensic Investigations (IDIF) determined that spider poison was used in the double infanticide that shocked the population of Copacabana at the end of April.
“We have received the IDIF report where it determines that the substance that killed the two little brothers would be carborufan. It is a pesticide with a biocidal action, it was used to kill spiders, it was used as an insecticide and what the forensic investigation unit tells us is that it is a very dangerous toxin for human beings and that it would even cause death by acute intoxication, ”said Alave in an interview with the Unitel network.
