Original Story

Natacha Jaitt, a model from Argentina, was found dead this morning in the town of Villa La Ñata.  She was 41 years old.  Jaitt gained international notoriety when she when went public with accusations of human trafficking against Gustavo Vera, a close friend of Pope Francis.  Here’s what we know so far:

Model and driver Natacha Jaitt was found dead this morning at a complex for events in the town of Villa La Ñata, in the Buenos Aires Tigre party.

As it transpired, two people who were in the place made a call to 911 and said that there was a person who had vanished.

Up to the complex for Xanadu events, Isla Verde 644, an ambulance arrived from the Emergency Service of Tigre and the doctor Evangelina Serrano found that Jaitt was dead.

This morning there were troops from the Buenos Aires police and it was expected that at 11 o’clock the autopsy would be performed.

The investigation was carried out by prosecutor Sebastián Fitipaldi, from the decentralized Functional Instructional Unit (UFI) of Benavídez.

We featured a video of Natacha Jaitt’s accusations on our blog several months ago (see below).  Key time segments in the video are listed below:

  • 4:13 – 7:07: Jaitt directly states that Gustavo Vera is a pedophile and runs a trafficking network. And that he uses his organization La Alameda to shut down his competition.
  • 8:49 – 9:51: Jaitt recounts how Bergoglio saved pedophile priest Grassi and relocated him to a new area where he had access to vulnerable children.

After her appearance on Mirtha Legrand’s talk show and the resulting controversy over her accusations against Vera, Jaitt tweeted, “Notice: I will not commit suicide. I won’t be bought off or drown in a bath tub, nor will I shoot myself in the head. So, if that happens: I wasn’t me. Save this tweet.”

Please pray for the repose of her soul.
