Administrator of Kame House states to fully cooperate: ¨Jesse Galganov never arrived at our establishment¨

C hristopher Garcia Obregon, owner and administrator of Kame House Backpackers, the hostel where Jesse Galganov ostensibly stayed one night on the 28th of last month, has declared on a social network to fully cooperate with the police investigations which concern the disappearance of the 22-year-old backpacker from Montreal. García said: ¨We have always given the authorities green light to investigate the case; since we have never resisted any summons by the Peruvian National Police to give our statement, nor have we hindered the work done so far. On the contrary, since the investigations started, we have faithfully collaborated following all the indications of the police. We have always been clear with our stance towards the case and have been willing to help, giving the authorities permission to enter our hostel. So have we cooperated with the luminol chemiluminescence reaction tests, which are used to find blood remains. Also, there was a smell search realised by dogs. In both cases, the tests were negative

García continues stating: ¨It is true that Jesse booked a room with us for the 28th of September but he never arrived at our establishment. From the 26th to the 29th of that month, I went on a trek with a group of friends, being unquestionable evidence as I have photos, which can be used for the investigation if required. We left the hostel in charge of a volunteer how handled the registration, check-inns and reservations. That 28th of September – the day when Jesse was supposed to arrive, his name was never registered, according to declarations of our staff and the registration book

¨We feel totally committed to Jesse’s search, not because it implies our innocence to people who point at us in terms like suspects or even claim we´re guilty, but, because we understand the pain and suffering of his family. This is why we have always taken the process of investigation with patience and respect

The owner and administrator of Kame House Backpackers furthermore declared the following: ¨Through Sunday´s broadcast of Cuarto Poder, we have observed that the cameras indicate that Jesse was only a few blocks from our premises, a fact that only reaffirms our support for investigations. We have absolutely nothing to hide in this unfortunate fact and feel the pain and sorrow that exists and we sympathise with Jesse´s family. However, we urge both the population and the press to stop speculating and to stop harassing with words that are full of insults, both towards me and to my establishment. We ask that if people are not informed about the topic, not to make any unsubstantiated comments as this could lead to legal actions against those emitting slander and offenses. We will continue to contribute with the investigations and will continue to support the case until the end of the case, where we (too) hope to find out the whereabouts of Jesse Galganov.¨
