Businessman who flaunted rich lifestyle found dismembered after cryptic post

A businessman accused of fraud has been found dismembered inside a suitcase following some strange social media posts.

Fernando Perez Algaba, nicknamed 'Lettuce', had nearly one million followers on Instagram where he flaunted his luxury lifestyle.

Two kids found the suitcase containing his mutilated, bullet-ridden corpse as they played football in Ingeniero Budge, Argentina, on July 23.

The 41-year-old was found days after posting a series of cryptic messages about "evil people". It is unclear exactly when he was killed.

Crime scene investigators were called and first found Fernando's forearms and legs. A waste removal machine was then used to recover a complete arm, with a tattoo on the hand confirming his identity. Fingerprint analysis later provided further confirmation.

An autopsy revealed he was killed with three gunshots.

Authorities are now investigating his death but thus far no suspects have been identified.

Fernando was living in Miami until earlier this year before travelling to Spain and then returning to Argentina. He described himself as an investor who sold and rented luxury vehicles.

Fernando registered several companies through notaries in recent years although one was reported for fraud, another had no tax identification number and a third was in debt.

Lawsuits were opened against him with creditors unsuccessfully pursuing him for years.

In a social media post days before his death, he was heard saying: "It's incredible how there are such evil people in the world that while you're thinking of helping them, they're thinking of destroying you."

Another message he sent read: "Hello, mum, I needed to clear my head as always. And from here, I am realising two things: that we can't escape from problems and that problems will follow us."
