Messi’s Wife, Antonela Rocuzzo, Grew up In Rosario, Where 14 Shots Were Fired at The Metal Doors of The Supermarket Her Family-Owned
The investigation into the threats made against soccer player Lionel Messi and the attack on his in-laws’ home in the Argentine city of Rosario is “going in a good direction,” said Jorge Baclini, the attorney general of the province of Santa Fe (in the east of the country).
“The prosecutor is looking into a number of possible explanations, and the investigation is going well, so we hope that it will also end well,” Baclini told Radio 2.
The attorney general said that the military shouldn’t help fight drug trafficking in Santa Fe because the problem can be “solved” by the national Gendarmerie.
“Yes, I agree that there needs to be an impact now, that there needs to be enough federal forces, which there isn’t right now, but I think the Gendarmerie is enough,” said Baclini, who also called for “comprehensive plans” to stop these crimes, which “won’t stop just because the justice system is doing its job.”

In the early hours of Thursday, 14 shots were fired at the metal doors of the supermarket owned by Antonela Rocuzzo, Messi’s wife. The supermarket is in Rosario.
A message for the captain of the Argentine team was also found there: “Messi, we’re waiting for you. The mayor of Rosario, Pablo Javkin, is also a drug dealer, so he won’t look after you.”
The football player is on the list of 35 called by Lionel Scaloni, which was released by the Argentine Football Association (AFA) on Friday. On March 23 and 28, the team will play two friendly games against Panama and Curacao.
Rosario, where Messi and his family usually spend Christmas and where he owns a house in a quiet neighborhood, is thought to be the most violent city in Argentina, especially because of the actions of drug gangs.
Anbal Fernández, the Argentine Minister of Security, said on the radio on Friday that the national Executive is making a “very great effort” to stop crime in Rosario, where “not only is the drug trafficker,” but also “extortion” and “virtual kidnappings.”
“With the help of more than 3,500 men and women from the four federal forces, a single command, and a lot of information about criminals, we were able to arrest 2,077 people in 2,050 different cases in 2022. It takes time and work to make progress, and we don’t just drop our weapons “In a conversation with Urbana Play, he said.
