The body of a multi-millionaire has been found chopped into little pieces and stuffed inside of a suitcase in Argentina.

The remains of Fernando Perez Algaba were found in a red suitcase which had been thrown into a stream in Ingeniero Budge, Buenos Aires.

Algaba’s body was found just days after he shared a series of eerie posts online before he was reported missing on July 19.

A group of local children were the first to discover Algaba’s body when they were playing football nearby and spotted the suitcase in the stream.

They alerted the authorities who then found two forearms and two legs.

Local media report that the amputations were professionally and cleanly done, suggesting the killers had help from a surgeon.

Authorities then located an arm and other body parts.

A unique tattoo on the finger of the corpse allowed police to confirm the remains belonged to Algaba. DNA samples taken later on further confirmed their suspicions.

Police are currently investigating the killing, however at the time of writing, no suspects have been identified, nor have any arrests been made.

Algaba was a self-made millionaire with almost a million followers on social media.

Just days before his killing, he shared a series of strange and cryptic posts to Instagram.

One read: “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.”

In another he wrote: “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.”

Algaba had lived in Miami earlier this year before travelling to Spain.

Shortly before his death he had been back in his home country of Argentina.
