Nisman: Episode 5: Murder?

As unrest over Nisman’s death grows and more and more people are convinced he was murdered. An estimated 400,000 march in silence through Buenos Aires in torrential rain to honour and mark his death.

The gun used to kill Nisman is found to belong to his colleague, Diego Lagomarsino, and is the one Nisman borrowed to protect himself. Having provided the gun, Lagomarsino becomes the main suspect in his death. US bank accounts in both of their names are discovered, holding money from dubious sources. The investigation reveals that the security services protecting Nisman took 11 hours to enter the victim’s apartment. The family, convinced that Nisman was murdered, pile on pressure until Prosecutor Fein is accused of malpractice and steps down from the case. A new investigation concludes that Nisman was murdered.
